Discourse Analysis and Detecting Deception

DiscourseStudies have shown that analysing written transcripts of speech resulted in more accuracy at detecting deceit than analysing non-verbal & verbal behaviour. This is this main reason why I’ve included an introduction to discourse analysis in the Intermediate 202 Program – to increase overall accuracy!

I’ve written in another post why I feel that discourse approach is important in research, why more attention needs to be made to critical psychology – and for these reasons – why discourse analysis is another important tool for determining truth from lies.

About Stu Dunn

Becoming proficient with non verbal communication and teaching what I’ve learnt over the years has become an absolute passion of mine; starting with beginning the SDL Behavioural Science Facebook Page, then set up my first online course in 2011, and my first book on the subject True Lies, A Guide to Reading Faces, Interpreting Body Language & Detecting Deception in the Real World was published in 2013. During this time I’ve helped thousands of people around the world become proficient in reading body language, micro expressions and detecting deception – and I’d love to help you too.
