Investigative Hypnosis is a powerful interviewing and investigative tool. These techniques are used to enhance and clarify memories that a person is already aware of, or to recover memories that the person is currently unaware of.
Investigative Hypnosis is not a method for determining the truthfulness of a statement provided by a victim or witness but rather is a tool that gives a person the ability to recall event details by concentrating without distractions while in a relaxed state.
Forensic and Investigative Memory-Enhancing Techniques can also be helpful in allowing a victim or witness of a traumatic or stressful incident to process, or resolve, and 'move on' from the experience. This is often even more important than obtaining information from the person.
