A Taste of Criminal Psychology: Understanding Terrorism

Updated Wednesday, 10 February 2021
Jen Phipps, from Aberystwyth University's Department of Law & Criminology, offers students the opportunity to see how psychology can help us to explain and understand a certain type of crime, so that we might better police and prevent it.

The session provides an overview of how terrorist organisations manipulate ‘fear’ for their own agenda.

Students are given an insight in to the power of psychology and how it empowers and facilitates extremist and terrorist ideals, for their own agenda.
