Forensic Solutions is pleased
to be offering CP202, Criminal Profiling &
Psychopathy. It is a very focused and explicit effort to
not only define the types of behavior that a psychopath exhibits, but
to explore how those behaviors might be evidenced in a crime scene,
and the possible motivations behind those behaviors. CP202 is an intense
course, not so much in terms of time, or even effort, but in terms of
the weight of the subject, and reconciling it within crime scene behavior.
The objective of CP202 is
to give students an awareness level of understanding of the core tenets
of criminal profiling as they relate specifically to the subject of
CP202 will also serve the
secondary objective of assisting students who wish to further learn
and use criminal profiling techniques in their current or developing
careers, by informing them to the point where they can make decisions
on how to pursue more advanced levels of education to fulfill these
goals. Professionals as well will become attenuated to the relevance
and potential saliency of applying profiling techniques in their own
