Sex Crimes and Paraphilia Webinar
On Thursday, November 19, 2015, join Alliant Professor Eric Hickey, Ph.D., for a webinar exploring the dark side of the human mind. This presentation explores sexual predators and their relational paraphiliac attachments, focusing on investigative profiling, sex offending and psychopathy.
“Sexual predators often develop non-consensual sexual relationships or relational paraphilic attachments (RPA) to their victims. These paraphilic relationships are borne in fantasy and explored in sexually deviant behaviors. Levels of psychopathy appear to be higher in offenders who develop specific forms of sadistic criminal paraphilia.” – Dr.Hickey
