Detecting Lies - Research and Resources
Lying Articles, Links, Videos and More
Since publishing How to Detect Lies, I recieve tons of email from students, writers and researchers requesting more information on lie detection.
Visitors have asked about or commented on body language, statement analysis, micro expressions, forensic psychology, etc.
This led me to researching and creating more articles, and now "How to Detect Lies" has grown into 5+ part series.
In addition, you'll find tons of related articles, videos, book suggestions and web sites of interest if you are searching for more detailed information. (Last update: Jan 23rd, 2013)
However, I am not an expert on lie detection ... just an information gatherer & publisher. (and mom) This page is for those who, like me, need as much information on a topic as possible.
I've worked to put together thoroughly researched articles with lots of illustrations and tons of links, videos and books for those looking to study the nitty-gritty of the subjects covered here.
Lucky for you, I have even managed to get an expert guest author: Mark McClish. You'll find his introduction to statement analysis really interesting. There are also plenty of links for those interested in studying forensic psychology.
Videos dealing with a range of topics from polygraphs to statement analysis can also be found near the bottom of the page along with recommended books on lies and deception.
