Behavioral Forensics Book Review:

Behavioral Forensics: Using Applied Behavior Analysis in Psychological Court Evaluations presents the first compendia on the application of behavioral principles for the assessment and analysis of criminal behavior in court-ordered psychological evaluations. The book explains criminal motivation, risk behaviors, custody, criminal responsibility, and competence to stand trial. BFA employs principles and techniques of standard behavioral assessment in deducing causal evidence from interview and psychometric data. Sections cover evidence-based concepts and principles of BFA vs. obsolete forensic evaluation models, also including ten case studies that illustrate BFA in pre and post-sentencing evaluations that demonstrate how to determine risk of criminal recidivism or competency. Considering the unprecedented numbers of psychologists turning to forensic work and influx of graduate programs offering degrees in criminal behavior analysis, this book is a timely resource for a variety of readers. Presents the advantages of using Behavioral Forensic Assessment (BFA) over personality theories Explains criminal motivation, risk behaviors, custody, criminal responsibility and competence to stand trial from a natural science (behavioral and interbehavioral) perspective Includes case studies that illustrate BFA in pre-sentencing and post-sentencing evaluations Offers the most scientific, evidence-based approach to criminal (forensic) psychological evaluations

A B C s of Behavioral Forensics Book Review:

Get practical insights on the psychology of white-collar criminals—and how to outsmart them Understand how the psychologies of fraudsters and their victims interact as well as what makes auditors/investigators/regulators let down their guard. Learn about the psychology of fraud victims, including boards of directors and senior management, and what makes them want to believe fraudsters, and therefore making them particularly vulnerable to deception. Just as IT experts gave us computer forensics, we now have a uniquely qualified team immersed in psychology, sociology, psychiatry as well as accounting and auditing, introducing the emerging field of behavioral forensics to address the phenomenon of fraud. Ever wonder what makes a white-collar criminal tick? Why does she or he do what they do? For the first time ever, see the mind of the fraudster laid bare, including their sometimes twisted rationalizations; think like a crook to catch a crook! The A.B.C.'s of Behavioral Forensics takes you there, with expert advice from a diverse but highly specialized authoring team of professionals (three out of the four are Certified Fraud Examiners): a former accounting firm partner who has a PhD in psychology, a former FBI special agent who has been with investigative practices of two of the Big Four firms, an industrial psychiatrist who has worked closely with the C-level suite of large and small companies, and an accounting professor who has interviewed numerous convicted felons. Along with a fascinating exploration of what makes people fall for the common and not-so-common swindles, the book provides a sweeping characterization of the ecology of fraud using The A.B.C.'s of Behavioral Forensics paradigm: the bad Apple (rogue executive), the bad Bushel (groups that collude and behave like gangs), and the bad Crop (representing organization-wide or even societally-sanctioned cultures that are toxic and corrosive). The book will make you take a longer look when hiring new employees and offers a deeper more complex understanding of what happens in organizations and in their people. The A.B.C. model will also help those inside and outside organizations inoculate against fraud and make you reflect on instilling the core values of your organization among your people and create a culture of excellence and integrity that acts as a prophylactic against fraud. Ultimately, you will discover that, used wisely, behavioral methods trump solely economic incentives. With business fraud on the rise globally, The A.B.C.'s of Behavioral Forensics is the must-have book for investigators, auditors, the C-suite and risk management professionals, the boards of directors, regulators, and HR professionals. Examines the psychology of fraud in a practical way, relating it to aspects of fraud prevention, deterrence, detection, and remediation Helps you understand that trust violation—the essence of fraud—is a betrayal of behavioral assumptions about "trusted" people Explains how good people go bad and how otherwise honest people cross the line Underscores the importance of creating a culture of excellence and integrity that inoculates an organization from fraud risk (i.e., honest behavior pays, while dishonesty is frowned upon) Provides key takeaways on what to look for when hiring new employees and in your current employees, as well as creating and maintaining a culture of control consciousness Includes narrative accounts of interviews with convicted white-collar criminals, as well as interpretive insights and analysis of their rationalizations Furnishes ideas about how to enhance professional skepticism, how to resist fraudsters, how to see through their schemes, how to infuse internal controls with the people/behavioral element, and make them more effective in addressing behavioral/integrity risks Provides a solid foundation for training programs across the fraud risk management life cycle all the way from the discovery of fraud to its investigation as well as remediation (so the same fraud doesn't happen again) Enables auditors/investigators to engage in self-reflection and avoid cognitive and emotional biases and traps that lead to professional judgment errors (e.g., overconfidence, confirmation, self-deception, groupthink, halo effect, availability, speed-accuracy trade-off, etc.) Ever since the accounting scandals surrounding Enron and WorldCom surfaced, leading to the passage of the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002, as well as the continuing fall out from the Wall Street financial crisis precipitating the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010, fraud has been a leading concern for executives globally. If you thought you knew everything there was to know about financial fraud, think again. Get the real scoop with The A.B.C.'s of Behavioral Forensics.

Case Studies in Behavioral Forensic Analysis Book Review:

Case Studies in Behavioral Forensic Analysis is a companion book to Dr. Ruben's earlier book Behavioral Forensics: Using Applied Behavior Analysis in Psychological Court Evaluations (2020). It liberally expands the campaign to transform traditional forensic psychological evaluations into behaviorally (evidence-based) psychological evaluations. Basic (experimental) and applied research serve the foundation in elucidating the opaque splatter of criminal actions into transparently coherent and molecular units of behaviors. These units of criminal behavior all seamlessly connect along a continuum of space and time-or in a progression along behavioral segments. Four comprehensive chapters divide into three sections: Qualification for Social Security Disability Insurance; Evaluations of Parental Competency for Children's Protective Services; and Evaluation for Probation/Parole. Case Studies provides a further blueprint for the interdisciplinary cadre of forensic professionals conducting court evaluations.

Profiling Violent Crime Book Review:

Presented from the perspectives of a former FBI profiler and a forensic violence-risk expert, Profiling Violent Crime: A Behavioral and Forensic Approach educates readers about the nature of criminal profiling including how it works, the techniques it draws on, the types of offenders it applies to, and the psychological make-ups of those offenders. Drawing from technique, as well as from theory and the latest clinical research, Profiling Violent Crime delves into precisely what it means to profile. Students learn what it's like to be on the ground as an FBI profiler, dispelling myths and detailing the actual process. Subsequent chapters detail crime scene analysis; determination of the type of offender that may be at work; the fascinating interplay between mental illness and criminality; and breakdowns of the various types of criminal offenders including stalkers, murderers, rapists, mass murderers, and serial killers. The book also offers multiple real-life case examples to shed light further into the criminal mind. Rooted in the authors' personal experience in law enforcement and forensic psychology Profiling Violent Crime is an excellent text for courses in criminal justice, psychological profiling, and forensic psychology. It provides readers with real, intimate insight into criminal profiling, addressing its strengths and drawbacks, as well as offering a glimpse of where this crucial field has yet to go. Peter M. Klismet, Jr. holds a master's degree in criminal justice from California Lutheran University and another in public administration from the University of Southern California. He is a former agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and was one of the first formally-trained psychological profilers within the Agency. He served in law enforcement for over thirty years before joining the faculty at Pikes Peak Community College as an associate professor of criminal justice, going on to chair the department. He is now the founder and director of Criminal Profiling Associates, a law enforcement consulting company. Dr. Clarissa Cole received her master's and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology from Baylor University, and began her career by working at Napa State Hospital. More than a decade ago, she transferred to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Currently, she is a senior forensic psychologist in an experimental program--the first of its kind, in the United States--wherein she supervises violence-risk assessments for the Board of Parole Hearings. Along with specializing in violence risk, Dr. Cole co-hosts a weekly true-crime radio show, and maintains her own blog/opinion page.

Behavioral Evidence Analysis Book Review:

The criminal profiling community can easily be split into two separate groups: those that have written criminal profiles and those that have not. It is an important distinction, because report writing is one the most important requirements of good scientific practice. The process of writing up findings helps to reveal flaws in an examiner's logic so that they can be amended or revisited; the final report memorializes findings and their underlying basis at a fixed point in time; and as a document a forensic report provides the best mechanism for transparency and peer review. The problem is that many criminal profilers haven't written criminal profilers, and still more prefer that this remain the case, often to conceal their lack of methodology or ability. The contributors to this volume have travelled the world for more than a decade to lecture on the subjects of crime scene analysis and criminal profiling. The result has been a steady stream of requests continued from educational institutions and government agencies alike to teach the application of criminal profiling theory. Everyone has read the books, everyone has attended the lecture; but few have experience with hands on practice and application. In other words, there is a growing number of serious professionals that want to know how to put theory into practice, and then learn what it means to put their findings into written form. Behavioral Evidence Analysis: International Forensic Practice and Protocols has been written as a companion text to Turvey's Criminal Profiling, now in its 4th edition. It is meant to provide the legion of instructors that are teaching criminal profiling as a subject with real world examples of case reports. It is also meant to serve as a desk reference for professionals that are writing crime scene analysis and criminal profiling reports, to enable sampling of structure, terminology, and references.

Criminal Behavioral Profiling Book Review:

What is the job of a "criminal profiler" really like? We see these roles played out nightly on tv shows and in the news, but how does law enforcement today actually use empirical data to correctly assess behaviour and help solve crimes, particularly serial crimes? Criminal and Behavioral Profiling, written by well-established authors Curt and Anne Bartol, presents a realistic and empirically-based look at the theory, research, and practice of modern criminal profiling, or, as it′s more professionally termed, behavioural analysis or behavioural investigative analysis. Designed for use in a variety of criminal justice and psychology courses, the book delves into the process of identifying distinctive behavioural tendencies, geographical locations, demographic, and biographical descriptors of offenders, and personality traits, based on characteristics of the crime. Timely literature and case studies from the rapidly growing international research in criminal profiling help students understand the best practices, major pitfalls, and psychological concepts that are key to this process.
