Geoff Coughlin of Emphasis on Skills will be speaking at our PRG Seminar on Tuesday 12 November 2013 at 5.30pm, giving an introduction to Cognitive Questioning and how to apply it in practice.
Cognitive Questioning is derived from the Cognitive Interview approach that has been used to great effect for around 30 years by lawyers and, in more recent years, panel members from regulatory councils and bodies. It is a forensic tool; a powerful set of memory retrieval techniques designed to help a witness (or registrant attending their hearing) remember more fully and accurately what happened.
Studies prove around 30-40% more accurate factual information can be obtained using Cognitive Questioning. It is therefore ideal for those interviewing witnesses, as well as panel members and advocates who may use the technique when questioning witnesses at hearing.
