This module takes you through the “Engage and Explain” phase of the PEACE model: prior to commencing any interview, it is important to establish a level of trust and recognition between interviewer and interviewee. Through engaging with your interviewee and explaining the interview process to them, you can ensure that the interviewee feels comfortable speaking with you. Only once informed consent has been obtained can the interview begin. This is an important aspect of any interview process, and it is even more important when the content of the interview is highly sensitive, emotional, or confidential.
In Module 4, you will:
– Understand how to apply techniques for engaging the interviewee in conversation
– Learn how to build a positive rapport with the interviewee
– Find out how to give control of the interview to the interviewee
– Learn how to to obtain consent in an open, informed way
