Session Topic: Sex Crimes and Criminal Paraphilia Behavior
Facilitated by: Dr. Eric Hickey
Sex Crimes and Criminal Paraphilia is designed to expand knowledge and understanding of criminal paraphilia, sex offenders and sexual predators. The course will help students more effectively recognize psychological and behavioral characteristics of these offenders that could, in turn, expedite their apprehension, interviewing, interrogation and prosecution. Students will be introduced to the etiology of criminal paraphilic attachments, how they develop, and for some, escalate into violent sex offenses. Students will also explore the psychopathology inherent in sex offending that can assist them in interviewing, providing interventions, containment and, case management.
