Course description

Criminal Psychology

Criminal psychology is the study of everything that plays a part in criminal behaviour, the thoughts, emotions and motivations of criminals. It also examines the use of psychology in crime, its detection and prevention. Essentially, criminal psychology is concerned with what makes someone commit a crime and their reactions after the crime has occurred.

This criminal psychology training course provides an overview of the psychology of criminal behaviour and the use of psychology in crime, its detection and prevention. The course covers different research methods and how they can help us research criminal behaviours, the use of psychology in helping to understand why some people turn to crime, how criminal psychology can be useful to criminal investigations and prosecutions, and how criminal psychology can help convicted criminals.
