This is a fascinating course which starts with an overview of offender profiling as developed initially by the FBI. The course moves on to crime scene analysis by the forensic psychologist or forensic mental health expert and what this tells us about the likely characteristics of the offender. The course looks at the likely characteristics of serial killers and rapists as distinguished from the general offender population, focusing on developmental characteristics from their childhood. Infamous cases are explored and the student is encouraged to carry out additional work in researching these cases.
Who this course is for:
- Over 16 years of age as adult material is included in the course.
- Anybody with an interest in this fascinating area of Forensic Psychology.
