Criminal Profiling is research and proof of deductive profiling methods developed by professional criminal profilers. Deductive profiling is different because it does not involve averaged, statistical profiles. Instead, it focuses on criminal profiling as an investigative process, solving real crime through an understanding of the nature and behavior of criminals. It approaches each criminal incident as its own world of behaviors and relationships. Throughout the course, there are illustrations of the most crucial tenets (the enthusiastic desire to investigate and examine the facts) that any good criminal profiler should adhere to. This course also contains cases in each chapter, along with the latest advances in evidence-based profiling.
Additional information has been added covering topics such as mass homicide, as well as the timely inclusion of a chapter on terrorist profiling and interviewing. Criminal Profiling is an ideal choice for students and professionals alike, including investigators, forensic scientists, criminologists, mental health professionals, and attorneys. Criminal Profiling is a comprehensive course, and reference for evaluating physical evidence, a tool to bring new perspectives to cold cases, and can aid in preparing for criminal trials. This course will equip you with deductive profiling methods, which focus on examining the nature and behavior of criminals in order to solve crimes and related offenses. Criminal Profiling was compiled by law enforcement, academics, mental health professionals, and forensic science communities for a balanced perspective throughout the course.
