This course teaches the Interviewer how to handle an explanatory denial made on religious grounds during the interview process and how to turn the denial around using religious nomenclature to move the interview forward towards a confession or harvest strategic information.
The Bottom Line: Religious belief is part and parcel to the American experience, even while religious affinity is diverse and widespread. Regional, educational, socio-economic, and cultural variations exist but the likelihood of investigators and interviewers conducting an interview with someone with a religious worldview is high. This in turn can cause the suspect to use religious based explanatory denials to counter an admission and stall an interview.
