Practical insights on the psychology of white-collar criminals—and how to outsmart them. 

For the first time ever, take an inside look at the mind of the fraudster. Behavioral Forensics takes you there, along with a fascinating exploration of what makes people fall for their swindles. It will make you take a longer look when hiring new employees and know what behavioral red flags to look for in the workplace and in your work in assessing values.

Join us for one, or both, webinars to learn about the fascinating world of fraud and the behavioral psychology behind it from both the academic research and the practical experience of these presenters.

These two webinars are a taste of what you can learn in the full Behavioral Forensics Academy™ delivered live in a classroom with these same experts.
