About this course

This Psychology and Crime course in Tonbridge is a short introduction to criminological psychology. Psychology is the study of mind and behaviour and if you are more interested in what causes the bad behaviour rather than the good, then this is the course for you.

This course will give you an understanding of how psychology can be applied to criminal behaviour and how the police use psychological theory to track criminals and interview witnesses. You will look at the explanations of criminal behaviour and how these explanations can have an impact on sentencing and custodial punishments. It will also look at the difficulties in defining crime and the debate within the justice system in relation to free-will or determinism

Course content will include:

- Psychological explanations of criminal behaviour
- Offender Profiling
- Defining and measuring crime
- The reliability of eye witness testimony
- Criminal Personality

There is no additional work between course hours.
