Interview and Interrogation

LEARN TO USE THE TRUTH TO YOUR ADVANTAGE

Wicklander-Zulawski & Associates (WZ) is an internationally recognized firm established in 1982.  Our passion for the truth has led us to become a world leader in non-confrontational interview and interrogation training. 

WZ’s team of Certified Forensic Interviewers (CFI) teaches a series of techniques, anchored by the WZ Non-Confrontational Method, to integrate strategic preparation, behavior interpretation, and structured questions allowing an interviewer to successfully adapt to any type of investigation. 

Join WZ to obtain training in the WZ Seminar on Interview & Interrogation Techniques.  This course is ideal for organizations who desire to use a non-confrontational approach to resolving cases and determining when an individual is being truthful. 

Learn how to conduct interviews that lead to an admission from the guilty without destroying the morale of the innocent, and identify the deceptive without confrontation. WZ’s unique non-confrontational communication techniques eliminate conflict between interviewers and their subjects while demonstrating how to reduce objections and denials.
