Interviewing and Deception.
I’m trying to study for my Accounting course and I need some help to understand this question.
Doug Cash frequently trains law enforcement officers regarding interview skills and identifying signs of deception. Other videos include two informative videos from the ACFE, and a vidoe of the pilot episode of Lie to Me, which explores the fascinating topic of micro-expressions. Please review these videos:

Video 4) Lie to Me, Pilot Episode – This video is the pilot episode of the TV series that focused on the work of Dr. Paul Ekman, who conducted extensive studies of human emotions and reactions, and identified what he calls “micro-expressions”.

After reviewing the video, prepare a three to four paragraph response, discussing your top several takeaways from the videos, as well as anything that stood out to you in the videos or other materials.
