FPSY 5135 - Criminal Behavior


(5 cr.) This course provides a foundation in both historical and current biological, psychological, and sociological theories of criminal behavior. Students explore theoretical issues that result from attempts to explain such behavior in forensic populations. They examine groups of offenders including mentally disordered offenders, sex offenders, violent offenders, and juvenile offenders. Students apply ethical guidelines and standards to the study and research of criminal behavior. During the course, students consider two questions important in forensic psychology: “Who is a criminal?” and “Is criminal behavior a mental illness?”
