With more and more students choosing to study psychology at university, understanding which area of psychology best suits you is key.
Join us on 31st August 2022, 11am - 2pm, for our Psychology Summer School as we take a look at Forensic Psychology and Profiling.
Full Event Details:
Session 1 – Forensic Psychology:
In this session, you will be given an overview of Forensic Psychology.
Forensic psychologists work with the psychological aspects of investigations, legal process and jury decision-making and apply psychological theory to explaining, predicting and treating offending behaviour.
Reviewing a case study, you’ll also learn about the different factors that might affect witnessing behaviour and the importance of considering the role of psychology in this.
Session 2 – Profiling, Personality and Psychopathology:
Following on from session one, you will gain an insight into psychopathology and personality and how it can help with profiling.
Profiling is an investigative tool that aids in the identification, apprehension and conviction of an unknown offender(s) by providing a description of the likely social, behavioural and mental characteristics of the offender(s).
Profiling also provides predictions of who the offender(s) are likely to attack next, where and when and possible interview strategies to elicit information about the crimes committed and confession of guilt.
The day is designed to not only be practical and fun but to give you a taste of some particular areas of psychology. We do hope you will join us for what will be an informative and potentially eye-opening insight into the study of psychology at university.
