As scientists who have studied emotion for decades, we were delighted to be asked. We ended up serving as scientific consultants for the movie, "Inside Out," which was recently released.
The highly popular Perceptive Interviewing® suite is now even more flexible. Reconstructed as a set of linked modules, we can now design a customised program that is perfect for your organisation or group.

What a great group we had in Melbourne in mid-October for the Evaluating Truthfulness and Credibility course! Lots of stories and different experiences made for a rich learning environment. We had local, interstate and international delegates on this program bringing a wide variety of skills, experience and potential applications for their new knowledge.
