Book Description

In 2005 the FBI’s National Center for the Analysis of Violent Crime, Behavioral Analysis Unit hosted a 5 day symposium on serial murder. The goal of the Symposium was to bring together a group of respected experts on serial murder from a variety of fields and specialties, to identify the commonalities of knowledge regarding serial murder.

A total of 135 subject matter experts attended the five-day event. These individuals included law enforcement officials who have successfully investigated and apprehended serial killers; mental health, academic, and other experts who have studied serial killers and shared their expertise through education and publication; officers of the court, who have judged, prosecuted, and defended serial killers; and members of the media, who inform and educate the public when serial killers strike.

The agenda encompassed a variety of topics related to serial murder including common myths, definitions, typologies, pathology and causality, forensics, the role of the media, prosecution issues, investigative task force organization, and major case management issues.

This invaluable publication is based on the input and discussion of the attendees on the major issues related to serial murder. The contents are based upon the notes taken during the presentations, panel discussions, and break-out group sessions. These were:

Definition of Serial Murder

Causality and the Serial Murderer

Psychopathy and Serial Murder

Motivations and Types of Serial Murder

Investigative Issues and Best Practices

Forensic Issues in Serial Murder Cases

Prosecution of Serial Murder Cases

Media Issues in Serial Murder Investigations

Serial Murder: Multi-Disciplinary Perspectives For Investigators (Kindle Edition) forms part of an initiative by the website www.all-about-psychology.com to make important, insightful and engaging psychology publications widely available.

This was a great reference, one that I used to gain more insight into my study of Public Safety Emergency Management, and Criminal Justice. I will pass the text to others through donating it to the public library and after completing my Doctoral Degree.
