“When you give me the truth, your brain is not working very hard, because it’s accessing information that is already there or not there. When you want to lie, your brain must work harder.” – Dan Ribacoff

This workshop explores an important but rarely taught subset of interviewing – how to better detect lying by hostile or third-party witnesses. This type of interviewing is relevant to all areas of litigation and investigation. While studies show that people typically overestimate their ability to spot liars, there are techniques that experienced interrogators believe are more effective than traditional cues. 

Dan Ribacoff, private investigator, credibility assessment expert, and polygraph examiner, as well as the founder and CEO of International Investigative Group, Ltd. (IIG, a private investigation, credibility assessment and security firm), will discuss ways to uncover deception during the litigation process and at trial. Additionally, he will explain how a polygraph test works and elaborate on the use of Analog, Lafayette, Axciton and Limestone Technologies Computer Polygraph equipment and how he presents his findings to the court. 

Mr. Ribacoff has been a private investigator for over 25 years where he has worked on numerous notable cases. In addition, he has been training as a polygraph examiner for over twenty years, conducting polygraph tests regarding criminal accusations, employee theft, insurance fraud, immigration issues, family issues, abuse allegations, and media. He has presented his findings in a variety of different forums, including before State and Federal Prosecutors on Supreme Court-Criminal, Civil and Matrimonial matters, and Family Court matters. Mr. Ribacoff is routinely featured on the Steve Wilkos Show as well as other news sources.


Outline of all topics addressed:
detecting if and when someone is lying;
why individuals lie;
how the brain reacts when someone tells a lie;
verbal behavior symptoms indicative of truth and deception;
non-verbal signs and clues of deception;
admissibility of polygraph test results at trial;

kinds of questions to ask to detect a lie;
