A Taste of Criminal Psychology

A group of our Year 10 students put on their detective hats this week when guests from Murdoch University visited the College to introduce them to the field of Criminal Psychology.
The students are studying Psychology as part of their Pre-ATAR HASS classes and will enjoy three Murdoch University workshops which introduce them to criminal case studies and teach different methods to identify suspects.
HASS teacher Emilie Ingate said the students enjoyed lively discusses as they tried to determine the culprit and justify their decision using the evidence presented.
“I think we may have a few sleuths among the group,” she said. “Thank you to Murdoch University Outreach Officer Jason Dohle and Senior Lecturer Dr David Keatley for their workshop – the students certainly all enjoyed learning about the psychology behind criminal profiling.”
