Would you like to learn about Criminal Psychology? Are you interested in individual behaviour and personalities? Then you are in the right place!
In this course, we will be looking at few theories that explain the links between criminal offence and various personality disorders. For example, we will be learning about Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia and other types of disorders that might be linked to the crime. We will also explore the topic of 'Is anyone capable of murder?'. Other topics that you will find interesting would be for example, 'How do personality traits affect anger and violence in some people', 'Can we predict criminal behaviour in some people?', 'What makes the person engage in the sex-related offence?', and much more!
**This course is accredited by the International Association of Therapists (IAOTH)
Additionally, we will explore the topics that are related to mental health and juridical system, and personality theories such as Eysenck's Personality Theory that gives many explanations on why some people are more predisposed to committing crime including anger and violence, burglary, murder, sexual offending behavior and other types of crime. As researchers and psychologists, we always try to understand human behavior, but at times during our research, we find more questions than answers.
In this course, you will find some additional resources such as links to useful websites, recommended literature, and PDFs that give additional information for your studies. It is your tutor's utmost intent to provide learning in the best and most interesting way through short bites courses that you would never get tired of!

My name is Elmira Strange, and I am Motivational Psychologist (MPhil) and Certified Life Coach (Dip). I am passionate about working with students who want to learn about Psychology, Psychotherapy, Counselling, and Coaching.
My previous work involved Research Psychology and Lecturing at University (UK) on the topics of Psychology & Counselling.
The unusual bit: I was born in Northern Kazakhstan (where it's freezing cold in winter -40C and really hot summers +40C), then moved to Moscow, Russia, and finally to London, UK.
The interesting bit: I had life-saving surgery and a near-death experience in 2012. The near-death experience made me realise that we are here to share our knowledge, help each other, and enjoy this life.
My interests: Psychology, Motivation, Self-Development, Therapy
My previous experience: Whilst I was working at University (Wales, UK) as a Senior Researcher and Psychology Lecturer (prior to Udemy), my focus was on 'Researching Stress in Families of Disabled Children' where I had to learn what makes people stressed and unhappy.
Since 2006 I am working as an 'online entrepreneur': writing blogs and books, creating YouTube videos, and teaching Psychology & Self-Development which has become my true passion. In my Udemy courses, I combine my extensive knowledge of 'online entrepreneurship' and my passion for Motivational Psychology, Coaching, and Psychotherapy.
