Forensic Psychology is the field that uses psychological knowledge to legal matters, both in the criminal and civil arenas. The Forensic Science and Profiling Diploma course teaches you how to apply psychological theories to explain criminal behaviour.
For explaining criminal behaviour, you first need to know about their psychology. The course presents several psychological theories. You will understand the psychology of a psychopath, offender or mentally ill person. The course helps you to find out the reasons why eyewitnesses do not give the correct answer while they are testifying or why psychopath did more crimes than other people with mental disorders. The personal characteristics of offenders, psychopath offenders, offender profiling, crisis negotiation, etc. will be discussed in the course.
In short, the course covers the essential areas of forensic psychology and helps you to implement the knowledge in the criminal investigation.
