The Psychology of Serial Killers

The Psychology of Serial Killers
During this talk, you will discover how serial killers are classified. What are the differences between lust killers like the BTK (Bind, Torture, Kill) Killer and visionary killers such as David Berkowitz (Son of Sam)?

Jennifer will explore the different categories, using case studies to illustrate.
She will also debunk common Serial Killer Myths – you may be surprised by what you learn!

Jennifer will discuss the typical differences between males and female serial killers, again, incorporating case studies to illustrate.

You will also investigate the phenomenon of killer couples such as Fred and Rose West and The Moors Murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, as well exploring the Folie à deux syndrome a.k.a ‘shared psychosis’.

Please be advised that no crime scene photos are used in any of Jennifer’s talks.

Please note there is a £2 ticket commission fee included in the price of the ticket.
