Civil Rights Investigator Four is our most advanced investigator training course, and draws on the best available evidence, research, and field-tested practices for effective investigations. Participants will engage the most critical elements of a civil rights investigation, including strategy development, conducting interviews, and developing credibility assessments.
At the center of this course is the cognitive interview, a rapport-based, trauma-infused approach to dialogue with parties and witnesses designed to yield best available evidence.
The course will train participants to plan and conduct cognitive interviews, revealing more accurate and reliable evidence and information. The course is equal parts expert instruction and practical application, drawing from ATIXA’s stable of top-tier practitioners and providing ample opportunities for participants to hone their skills. Participants will benefit from direct interaction and observation with the instructors, as well as mock interviews with co-participants and strategic implementation simulations.
