Permission to Confess.
Many child sexual abuse offenders rationalize their criminal conduct by deluding themselves with lies that sound rational to them. Understanding these rationalizations and learning how to use them in the interview process can be critical to providing the perpetrator “permission” to confess.
And if they don’t confess? How would you like the jury to hear the defendant talking to someone about his crimes when he thinks no one else is listening? Enter the world of “pretext” conversations. They’re legal, creative, exciting, and most of all, rewarding – because pretext conversations can mean children don’t have to go to court. This training will provide the step-by-step “how-to” to also make them easy.
Using real case scenarios of perpetrator interviews, pretext conversations, interactive exercises. and handout materials, participants will master:
The lies offenders use to rationalize their crimes;
How to use these rationalizations in the suspect interview;
Having the jury hear the defendant talk to someone about his crimes when he thinks no one else is listening.
While being “enter~trained,” motivated, and inspired.
