Forensic Solutions is pleased
to be offering CP203: Criminal Profiling & Psychopathy, II. This
course is a continuation of CP202: Criminal
& Psychopathy. Concepts
from CP202 are built upon and explored in offense specific contexts
through the lens of criminal profiling. Course material will focus
on the illustration of psychopathic behavior through case example.
will learn to better recognize that behavior from elements found in
the crime scene.
The objective of CP203 is
to give students an advanced awareness level of the core tenets of criminal
profiling as they relate specifically to the subject of psychopathic
behavior. CP203 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 particular fields.
