Psychosocial Analysis of Offending Behaviour

This degree integrates the disciplines of psychology with the applied sociology of deviance. It enables progression towards a comprehensive understanding of offending, its impact on individuals and communities and current forensic practice. This is achieved by focusing on the application of psychosocial theory within health and social care and the criminal justice system. Scrutinising the holistic healthcare needs of people with a history of offending you will study concepts such as risk and dangerousness, while also examining offending behaviour across the lifespan, from children who offend through to older adults. This will allow you to analyse and understand complex offending behaviour, such as that encountered when working with mentally disordered offenders and those who present a significant risk of serious reoffending.
