EXPERTISE DRIVEN BY DATA 

With over 200 academic publications and books, our training is based on decades of empirical research conducted with operators in the field. Our research has been published in the most respected academic outlets, and we continue to test and validate all our theories through our active academic research portfolio.  

"No researcher in the world has ever laid hands on such a haul of data before. Based on this research, they [the Ground Truth  team] have constructed the world’s first empirically grounded and comprehensive model of interrogation tactics"

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Ground Truth training courses cover a range of topics that are backed by scientific data with real operators, and taught through a series of scenario-based learning techniques. Our methods and theories have been empirically tested in extremely difficult environments by a team of internationally recognized psychologists. Our data comes from research with law enforcement, military, security services and the intelligence services. 

REAL WORLD PROBLEMS NEED REAL WORLD DATA.

"Laurence Alison is one of my academic heroes. He does what every writer longs to do. He makes the difficult clear – without losing his rigour."
