As the result of more than 20 years as a counterintelligence agent for the U.S. government and almost 7 years working as a law-enforcement instructor, Van Ritch has developed a keen interest and unique perspective on analyzing body language while conducting interviews. First, using the basic techniques of this unique human phenomenon to get to the truth during counterespionage investigations and later using his experience in this field to train investigators, Ritch worked to refine his skills to the point where they are today. His years of real-world experience with interpreting body language is reflected in this informative and revealing video. Among his many accomplishments during his 22 years in the U.S. Army, Ritch graduated from the British Armys Special Intelligence Operations Course, served as the officer in charge of counterespionage for the U.S. sector of West Berlin during the Cold War, and was the operations officer responsible for the development of the U.S. Army SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape) program.
