This course will canvass a range of theoretical and applied issues in forensic and criminal psychology. Different philosophical traditions will be examined relative to their contemporary influence on how we think about and empirically investigate criminal offending and offenders. Typologies of offending will be examined such as juvenile offenders, violent and sexual offenders, and offenders with mental disorders. Specific issues such as the social context of criminal offending, profiling, detection and deception, criminal justice policy, and therapeutic jurisprudence will also be covered.
