With "how-to" guidance advising you how to operate ethically and to maximum effect at each phase of interviewing, each chapter advances the core concepts of case management through a subject-centric approach and there is in-depth discussion of the psychological underpinning of the ConversationManagement technique which lies at the heart of the PEACE interviewing model.

Editorial Reviews

"An invaluable guide to both the learner and the teacher in understanding the complexities of investigative interviewing. With much police training moving away from traditional delivery and towards an academic style, university staffm particularly those involved in inputs regarding thepsychology of interviewing, will need to have a thorough theoretical knowledge of the PEACE interviewing model in order to contextualise the potential behaviours displayed. Eric Shepherd has created a very redable book which allows the reader to dip in and out as needed. The practical nature of thestyle of writing and the focus on application does not detract from the opportunity it affords both a teacher and a learner to draw deep learning around this key policing skill." --Ashley Tiffen, Senior Lecturer in Policing at St Martins College, Carlisle
