Criminal Psychology 101


Jeff Imboden, BA, MAT


NOTE:  This training will contain some graphic language and material due to the topic.  

"You're traveling through another dimension. A dimension not only of sight, and sound, but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. Your next stop........The Twilight Zone."  When dealing with criminals you must put aside your view of the world and enter theirs. This training will be a segue into the criminal mind.
It will delve into the best/worst approaches one can take when trying to impact this population, analyzing the barriers that exist and must be recognized, challenged, and changed before meaningful interaction can take place.

The goal of this training is to give participants a basic understanding of a very complex population. There are addicts and there are criminal, addicts. Many of the "theories" presented are what I attempted to pass on at the Probation/Parole Training Academy where I taught "Street Survival Skills" for 30 years.
