Purposes and Objectives:

Knowledge Solutions is pleased to be offering CP208: Criminal Profiling & Domestic Homicide. It is a focused effort to define the specific types of domestic homicide that can occur, and to explore how they may manifest as behavior in a crime scene. Offender motivations will be explored as well. CP208 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 CP208 is to give students an awareness level of understanding of the core tenets of criminal profiling as they relate specifically to the subject of domestic homicide. CP208 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.

For a full syllabus, please refer here: CP208.
