LSO802 - Criminal Psychology: Psychopaths & Serial Killers

Are psychopaths born or made? This course provides students both with an analysis of the development of criminals and in particular that of psychopaths and serial killers. The biological, developmental, learning and situational factors that contribute to criminal antisocial behaviour will be explored in detail. Since there is sound research on psychopaths, a particular focus will be placed on psychopaths. The diagnosis of psychopathic personality, connections between psychopathic and normal personalities, neuroscience findings and research on emotion and thought processes in psychopaths will be examined. Case studies will be examined to bring the research to life.
