Focused on Behavioral Evidence Analysis (BEA), a method of criminal profiling developed and refined by the author over the past 15 years, the fourth edition of Criminal Profiling maintains the same core foundation that made previous editions best sellers in the professional and academic community worldwide. Written from practicing behavioral analysts and aspiring students alike, this work emphasizes an honest understanding of crime and criminals. Newly updated, mechanisms for the examination and classification of both victim and offender behavior have been improved. In addition to refined approaches towards victimology, crime scene analysis, motivation and case linkage, a chapter on sexual deviance has been added as well. With prior edition in wide use as a primary text in criminal justice, law, criminology, and behavioral science programs around the world, Criminal Profiling, Fourth Edition remains essential for students and professionals alike. Outlines the scientific principles and practice standards of BEA-oriented criminal profiling, with an emphasis on applying theory to real cases. Contributing authors from law enforcement, academic, mental health and forensic science communities provide a balance perspective.

The technique commonly referred to as ‘criminal profiling’ is one in which crime behaviours are evaluated to predict the likely attributes of an offender. In practice, the technique has enjoyed steady growth and interest over the past three decades. The present volume draws together research from scholars and practitioners from across the globe that examines from a range of multidisciplinary perspectives the use, application and value of this form of profiling. The material canvassed throughout this text not only examines research and theoretical principles for the assessment of crimes, but extends to exploring the range of issues facing the theoretical development of criminal profiling and its practical, legal and professional practice. Topics include the examination of homicidal syndromes, the association of crime scene behavior patterns with offender characteristics, criminal propensity and opportunity, the identification of crimes committed by the same offender, the legal admissibility of profiling, its accuracy, and the problems confronting the contemporary practice of criminal profiling. This volume is likely to become an essential reference for forensic practitioners and students alike operating in the fields of criminology, law and policing and anyone with a genuine interest in the investigation and resolution of violent crime.

Das rekonstruierte Tatverhalten eines Gewaltverbrechers liefert einem Criminal-Profiler" angeblich samtliche Informationen um detaillierte Aussagen uber Geschlecht, Alter, Lebensraum, Intelligenz, Charakter, Personlichkeitsstruktur, usw. generieren zu konnen. Criminal Profiling entwickelte sich zu einer Disziplin, welche zahlreiche akademische und wissenschaftliche Bereiche impliziert. Im Verlauf der Entwicklung dieser Disziplin kristallisierten sich zwei verschiedene Vorgehensweisen zur Profilerstellung heraus. Zum einen die induktive Profilerstellung, welche auf statistische und empirische Daten, sowie auf die individuellen Erfahrungswerte und Intuitionen des jeweiligen Profilers basiert. Zum anderen der deduktive Ansatz, nach dem jeder Fall als einzigartig angesehen wird. Die Profilerstellung erfolgt hier nach streng logischen Schlussfolgerungen und Syllogismen, basierend auf den vorgefundenen Tatortspuren und Beweisen. In dieser Arbeit werden beide Methoden vorgestellt. Es wird auch aufgezeigt, mit welchen psychologischen und methodischen Werkzeugen Profiler vorgehen, welche wissenschaftlichen Theorien dieser Tatigkeit zugrunde liegen und wo die Grenzen liegen.

Offender Profiling and Crime Analysis provides a highly readable account of the subject, and a picture of profiling which by no means accords with popular views and representations of what is involved. The book provides an overview of profiling techniques, offering some fascinating insights into the various approaches to profiling, and schools of thought, which have emerged − looking particularly at the work of the FBI, and of British and Dutch profilers.

Akademische Arbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Forensische Psychologie, Strafvollzug, Note: 1,5 (CH:5,5), Universität Basel (Institut für Psychologie), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Unter Criminal Profiling versteht man die Zusammenstellung von möglichen Persönlichkeitsmerkmalen, Verhaltensauffälligkeiten und Lebensumstände eines unbekannten Täters auf Grund genauer Analyse der Tatortspuren, sowie weiterer kriminalistischer und viktimiologischer Erhebungen (Meyer 2002). Nicht zuletzt die in jüngster Verhangenheit erfolgreich lancierten Kinofilme „Das Schweigen der Lämmer“, „Hannibal“ und TV-Serien wie beispielsweise „Profilier“ und „Das FBI ermittelt“ haben zu einem wahren Boom des Phänomens „Profiling“ beigetragen. Der ermittelnde „Profiler“ wird in den populärwissenschaftlichen Beiträgen sehr häufig als eine Art Wahrsager dargestellt, welcher scheinbar mittels hellseherischer Eingebung aus minimalen Tatortspuren eine nahezu perfekte Rekonstruktion des Geschehens inklusive einer detaillierten Täterbeschreibung erstellen kann. Doch was steckt hinter dem mystischen Schleier dieser hellseherisch anmutenden Ermittler? Welche konkreten Vorgehensweisen und Instrumente werden verwendet? Wie valid und reliabel sind die Methoden? Diese Arbeit liefert zunächst einen historischen Abriss über die Entwicklung dieser noch jungen Disziplin. Im weiteren Verlauf soll das Criminal Profiling definiert werden und ein Überblick über Ziele, Anwendungsgebiete, theoretische Prämissen und Aspekte wie das Tatortverhalten oder die Täterhandschrift gegeben werden.
