Teach Me or Lie to Me
Your nose does not grow when you lie, thankfully. However, there are a number of indicators of deception (Vrij, 2008). People who held more accurate beliefs about these indicators of deception were better lie detectors (Forrest, Feldman, & Tyler, 2004). Yet, people tend to not be very accurate lie detectors and hold a number of false beliefs (Bond & DePaulo, 2006; Global Deception Research Team). Recently, a study has found that the implementation of a workshop has been effective for increasing accurate beliefs about indicators of deception and reducing negative attitudes toward deception for physical therapy students (Curtis, Huang, & Nicks, 2015).The purpose of the current study was to investigate the effectiveness of an educational workshop for enhancing correct beliefs and reducing negative attitudes.
