The role of improvisation in effective investigative interviews . . .
How important is it for interviewers to develop improvisation skills? While a great deal of focus, logically, is placed on developing an interviewer's skills in structuring an interview, in asking the "right questions", in organising and introducing evidence into the interview, to some degree in deception detection, and other fundamentals, I am curious about the group's opinion or experience in being trained in improvisation to develop improved reaction times, fluidity of conversation, enhanced cognitive performance from both interviewer and interviewee, better & more natural rapport, improved emotional environment that is more conducive to honest information flow from interviewees, etc.
