The International Association of Interviewers has developed rationalizations to match the thought process of almost any suspect. The right rationalization will help you get a confession.
Steps of using a rationalization:
- State the Rationalization so they understand what they are about to hear
- Create a story for the Rationalization which lets them understand the stresses or influences in our everyday lives that lead us to make the decisions that we make
- State the moral of the story -really this is the conclusion of the story, why are we telling the rationalization
- Link it back to the Investigation so that it makes sense in the context of the interview
