In the Forensic Psychology Level 3 Diploma Course we adopt a research perspective to forensic psychology, beginning with a brief introduction to research methodologies followed by a very basic introduction to statistics for research. The course then examines the psychology of violent crime and gives the student the opportunity to conduct their own research into the links between a particular mental disorder of their choice, and violent crime.   On successful completion on this home study course students will receive an accredited Level 3 Certificate Award issued by NCFE.   Following on from this the course makes a brief examination of serial murder and the different causal factors that have been put forward as contributing to the development of the serial killer. The student is then invited to use their learning to date, together with their own research, to explore three serial killers and to produce a report of approximately five hundred words which examines the personas of the chosen serial killers in relationship to the popular urban myths identified by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and explain which they believe hinders the investigation of serial murder.   The course then proceeds to examine the links between substance abuse serious crime, violent crime, acquisitive crime and mental disorder and governmental responses to substance abuse. The student is given a further opportunity to conduct their own research to show how a local intervention programme in their area is evidencing the success or otherwise of The Government Drug Strategy.   Following from these modules students will look at some mental disorders that have been put forward as defences in criminal trials. These include; Dissociative Identity Disorder (Multiple Personality Disorder), Dissociative Amnesia and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. They will also be given the opportunity to conduct research into Dissociative Identity Disorder. The course continues with a brief examination of eye witness testimony and the evidence of children, after which students will again develop their knowledge by conducting their own research.
