Approaches To Psychological Profiling

 

For the Unit 4 Assignment, write a 4–5 page informative essay on the approaches to psychological profiling. In your essay, include the following.

  • Identify and describe four or more types of profiles. Different profiles might include the following; however, they do not need to be limited to the list below.

Types of Profiles

  • Offender profiling
  • Victim profiling
  • Equivocal death profiling
  • DNA profiling
  • Crime scene profiling
  • Geographical profiling
  • Paraphilia profiling
  • Describe how a thorough psychological profile can be created. For example, Offender Profiling is a collection of information by law enforcement agencies, which in turn is translated into a general description of a specific type of person that might commit a certain crime. Combining Offender Profiling with Victim Profiling, personality and behavioral characteristics of the victim can be tied to a certain type of offender. When you combine both strategies, you will produce a stronger profile.
  • Provide an example of each profile used and show how they can be combined, using inductive reasoning, to produce a psychological profile. Inductive reasoning will take multiple thoughts to combine a specific conclusion.
