Dr Mark Frank, the world-renowned expert in reading facial deception and non-verbal communication, recently presented a seminar on 'Deception, Demeanour and Assessment' at ECU's Joondalup Campus.
His seminar answered the very important question 'How you can you tell if someone is lying to you?'
The seminar was held over Monday, 6 July and Tuesday, 7 July and attracted over 230 participants including students, staff, and representatives from various agencies including the Australian Federal Police, WA Police, Department of Corrective Services and the Australian Customs Service.
The seminar received very positive feedback from participants and Dr Frank expressed his desire to return and conduct future seminars in Perth.
Dr Mark Frank is a Deception Expert and Associate Professor at the Department of Communication, College of Arts and Sciences, University of Buffalo, State University of New York.
