Doscher Graphological Analysis (DGA) offers a scientific approach to deception detection during pre-employment screening, investigations, interrogations, and interviews.  The DGA method confirms the presence of nonverbal and verbal behavioral cues.  Because human behavior is unique, the DGA method's approach to deception detection is subject-specific; no generalizations from previous correlative studies are considered.  The research based method is an indirect quantitative approach to quantifying psychological cues.

DGA Method

  • The DGA method is not dependent on handwriting styles.
  • The DGA method applies to cursive or printed writing.
  • The DGA method provides supplemental evidence for interviews, interrogations, and polygraph examinations
  • The DGA method has been successfully applied to multiple languages.

Interested in seeing what DGA can do for your agency/firm? Call or email us for your complimentary initial consultation.

2009  ​After a forensic case review of a questionable homicide/suicide, Dr. Doscher began researching  various methods of deception detection.
2012  ​No measurable connection existed between nonverbal and verbal deceptive cues.
2015 -18  ​Graphological field studies were launched.  More than 1100 written statements were analyzed.

June 2017 ​ Doscher Graphological Analysis, LLC was formed to provide supplemental tangible evidence for interviews, interrogations, and polygraph examinations, further augmenting ​criminal and civil investigations.
