CHAPTER MEMBERS: LOG IN TO RECEIVE SPECIAL PRICING
REGISTRATION OPENS DEC 4, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic is changing the way many professionals operate. Videoconferencing, for example, has gained popularity in several industries, including that of investigations. Several interviews that used to be held in person are now conducted online, using programs such as Zoom or Teams. In this presentation, Dr. Denault will address the role of nonverbal communication in interactions and discuss the impact of videoconferencing and various biases on online interviews.
