About this webinar

This psychology taster session will be useful to anyone considering studying a psychology-related subject at Regent's.

What is offender profiling? Can we use clues from a perpetrator’s behaviour and method to predict his or her identity? Using case study illustrations but referring extensively to the research literature on the psychology of criminal behaviour and personality, Dr Marina Rachitskiy examines the science of offender profiling and whether these profiles can help to catch criminals. Can we predict perpetrators’ personalities, their location, their occupation and whether they will commit crime again?

Presenters

  • Rosamond Watling, Senior Lecturer in Psychology
