Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis, Fourth Edition, provides an introduction to the behavioral evidence analysis (BEA) method of criminal profiling. The book begins with discussions regarding the method of criminal profiling; the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed by criminal profilers; educational requirements; and the importance of cultivating experience through formal internships, mentoring, on-the-job training, and real life. The remainder of the book is organized into five sections. Section 1 presents an overview of criminal profiling, covering its history; the use of the scientific method, logic, and cognition; alternative methods of criminal profiling; forensic psychology and forensic psychiatry; and an introduction to BEA and crime scene analysis. Section 2 deals with the principles of forensic victimology and discusses the concepts of sexual deviance, sexual asphyxia, and false reports. Section 3 covers crime scene analysis, crime reconstruction, crime scene characteristics, interpreting motive, offender modus operandi and signature, and cybercrime. Section 4 deals with offender characteristics, including psychopathy, sadism, domestic homicide, mass murder, and serial cases. Section 5 considers professional issues, such as ethical guidelines for profilers and the admissibility of criminal profiling evidence. * Best-selling author Brent Turvey defines the deductive profiling method, which focuses on examining the nature and behavior of criminals in order to solve crimes* Contributing authors represent law enforcement, academic, mental health, and forensic science communities for a balanced perspective* Completely revised with 35% new material including updates on the latest advances in evidence-based profiling New to this edition * New cases in every chapter* New chapters in logic and reasoning* New chapter reviewing non-evidence based profiling methods* New chapter on mass homicide* New chapter on terrorist profiling and interviewing

Praise for the third edition: "In the third edition of this very popular textbook, Brent Turvey clearly demonstrates that criminal profiling has established itself as a scientific endeavor rather than an exercise in investigative intuition. This textbook pulls together an impressive amount of substantive knowledge from a variety of disciplines in order to provide the reader with a foundation upon which to develop a mastery of the criminal profiling process. As Turvey demonstrates throughout the text, however, there are various methodological approaches to the practice of criminal profiling. Paramount among these, he argues, is the method known as Behavioral Evidence Analysis, which is described and illustrated in great detail throughout this remarkable book." --Daniel B. Kennedy, PhD, Forensic Criminologist, University of Detroit Mercy "The third edition of Criminal Profiling is sterling!" --Stan Crowder, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, Kennesaw State University, GA Praise for the previous editions: "This text documents the principles of proper criminal profiling and undertakes to establish definite criteria for professionalization...should be reviewed by anyone intent on becoming a professional criminal profiler." -AMERICAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY "...a thorough grounding in what is a relatively new field. This is more than a basic text and...should be required reading for all criminal investigators." -CRIME AND JUSTICE INTERNATIONAL " important contribution to the systematic study of the behavioural evidence linked to the perpetration of serious crimes...Brent Turvey's opus is a major and much needed step toward professionalism [of criminal profiling.]" -THE EXPERT "Decrying 'faith-based thinking' amongst some who call themselves criminal profilers, this work seeks to professionalize criminal profiling by insisting that it rest on a proper background in the behavioral sciences and criminal forensics; hence the secondary label found in the subtitle, "behavioral evidence analysis." The author (together with collaborators) describes the skills, techniques, and methods of this scientifically-oriented criminal profiling in 25 chapters organized into sections on introductory issues, forensic victimology, crime scene analysis, offender characteristics, and professional issues (i.e., ethics and trial testimony)."--4th Edition review in Reference and Research Book News

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Brent E. Turvey spent his first years in college on a pre-med track only to change his course of study once his true interests took hold. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from Portland State University in Psychology, with an emphasis on Forensic Psychology, and an additional Bachelor of Science degree in History. He went on to receive his Masters of Science in Forensic Science after studying at the University of New Haven, in West Haven, Connecticut. Since graduating in 1996, Brent has consulted with many agencies, attorneys, and police departments in the United States, Australia, China, Canada, Barbados and Korea on a range of rapes, homicides, and serial/ multiple rape/ death cases, as a forensic scientist and criminal profiler. He has also been court qualified as an expert in the areas of criminal profiling, forensic science, victimology, and crime reconstruction. In August of 2002, he was invited by the Chinese People's Police Security University (CPPSU) in Beijing to lecture before groups of detectives at the Beijing, Wuhan, Hanzou, and Shanghai police bureaus. In 2005, he was invited back to China again, to lecture at the CPPSU, and to the police in Beijing and Xian - after the translation of the 2nd edition of his text into Chinese for the University. In 2007, he was invited to lecture at the 1st Behavioral Sciences Conference at the Home Team (Police) Academy in Singapore, where he also provided training to their Behavioral Science Unit. In 2012 Brent completed his PhD in Criminology from Bond University in Gold Coast, Australia. He is the author of Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Editions (1999, 2002, 2008, 2011); co- author of the Rape Investigation Handbook, 1st and 2nd Editions (2004, 2011), Crime Reconstruction 1st and 2nd Editions (2006, 2011), Forensic Victimology (2008) and Forensic Fraud (2013) - all with Elsevier Science. He is currently a full partner, Forensic Scientist, Criminal Profiler, and Instructor with Forensic Solutions, LLC, and an Adjunct Professor of Justice Studies at Oklahoma City University.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Hung up a sign "I'm a Profiler!" 17. März 2013
Von Peter M. Klismet, Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I have to give this guy a lot of credit for self-promotion based on a minimal amount of knowledge and absolutely no prior experience. He went to college, got a degree and later a master's. Then he apparently decided he was a 'profiler.' This is a danger, because almost literally someone else could take a few psych classes or like a Pat Brown, be a good housewife and have an oddball tenant, and then declare herself a profiler. And worse yet, to have a loyal cadre of people who form something of a cult around his beliefs.

Having been trained by the FBI and having studied and profiled several hundred cases as a profiler in an FBI field office, I still wonder if I know enough to profess all of the knowledge Mr. Turvey claims to have acquired. He is the antithesis of what we were trained to do, namely to gain a wealth of experience working on REAL cases, then perhaps you are qualified to profile cases. Perhaps. However, Mr. Turvey apparently decided he was interested in profiling, and off he goes. He skipped right over the important part, having some EXPERIENCE before you profess some great knowledge.

There are probably some unfortunate students out there who have been taught 'profiling' directly out of one of Mr. Turvey's textbooks, and the professor has not spent a single moment ever viewing a crime scene. I just hope this doesn't become the standard, because the FBI pioneered the concept of criminal profiling, continues to do research, has the three 'Icons' of Ressler, Douglas and Hazelwood, who actually learned and did research, as opposed to magically declaring themselves as 'wizards' of profiling like this guy has. But, I'll give him some credit for self-promotion. Unfortunately, his background #or lack of it#, makes him a borderline fraud and charlatan.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Even better than 3rd Edition 3. August 2011
Von Jimmy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Criminal Profiling 4th Edition is even better than the famous 3rd edition!

I got my copy not all that long ago and so far I am pleased to see new content, everything is a lot more organized and easy to follow.

There are 25 chapters split in to 5 sections which are:

Section 1 - Introduction To Criminal Profiling
Section 2 - Forensic Victimology
Section 3 - Crime Scene Analysis
Section 4 - Offender Characteristics
Section 5 - Professional Issues

The terrorism chapter is much more expanded on the previous editions also.

As for the review left by "tactical tradecraft" needless to say this person did not read the last 2 editions of this textbook and obviously has something against personal against Turvey.

This previous review was copied from the 3rd edition page and pasted on 4th edition... you should not post reviews if you have not bought/read the text - please refer to the following review [...]

All in all, I recommend 4th edition, even more than 3rd :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A text for professionals 18. August 2011
Von forpsy - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The chapter on logic and cognition should be required as part of the education of any forensic professional (and most, if not all, non-forensic education).

The addition of chapters on forensic psychology and terrorism further cement this text as the standard go-to text for anyone affiliated with the criminal justice system.

if you are looking for THE educational text on profiling, Turvey and his co-authors have provided it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fundamental Reading! 4. August 2011
Von Ronald J. Miller - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Mr. Turvey has again expanded the subject matter and content of the 4th Edition of Criminal Profiling. I have known Mr. Turvey since the publication of the 1st Edition and the "set" of four editions provides a great collection of discussions and materials written by Mr. Turvey and a prominent collection forensic scientists, psychologists, psychiatrists and criminal investigators in the world. I know Mr. Turvey to be an obsessive fact checker and the cases and assessments he makes regarding case forensic analysis and profiling methodologies are well researched and documented. Similarily, his contributing authors are solid and focused on their topics. Criminal Profiling, Fourth Edition: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis, continues to lay a broad and solid foundation to the subject. It is no wonder that it is a leading textbook on the topic at various universities throughout the world. There are several approaches to behavioral evidence analysis ---some are based on sound research and methodology and others fraught with fraud and politics. Mr. Turvey does an excellent job of educating the reader/student as to what questions to ask to tell the difference. Needless to say, when the light of science exposes those practices which cannot be supported by a scientific method, the scientist doing so is occasionally the object of criticism by those fleeing from exposure. Mr. Turvey has never shirked controversy and his striving for intellectual honesty make this text refreshing in a field all too often in need of more professional accountability. This text is a great primer and reference to understanding the topics discussed.

I needed the hardcopy book, because reading on the computer was hurting my eyes, so having the hardcopy has helped me out tremendously.
