Behavioral Indicators of Mental State

On-Demand Webinar

Leverage state-of-the-art behavioral science about behavioral indicators that have been validly and reliably demonstrated as indicators of critical mental states. Presented by world-renowned psychologist Dr. David Matsumoto.


Presented by Dr. David Matsumoto, understanding body language and reading people well is a crucial skill for many professionals whose jobs require interviews, interrogations, and information collection and reaction elicitation of others.

Topics covered include knowledge and skill development to identify various behavioral indicators of specific emotions, cognitions associated with words or verbal phrases, cognitive processes, and overall arousal. Participants learn to apply this knowledge base and skills in interviews and interrogations, and improve their abilities to gain insights about the mindsets of the interviewees by focusing on the world of nonverbal behavior evaluated in context against verbal output.

Participants are also guided through a hypothesis-testing approach at thinking critically about how such evaluations are made, as well as learning the scientific bases of the behavioral indicators covered.
