"The Making of a Monster: An In-Depth Look at Serial Killers, Sexual Predators, and Psychopaths"
This training is focused on the examination of serial killers, sexual predators, and psychopaths who engage in violent and heinous criminal acts. This training will focus on prenatal and pediatric contributing risk factors including early exposure to trauma, prenatal substance use, and family history, and the role each may play in contributing to future acts of serial homicide and sexual perpetrating. Intervention strategies, best practices, and ethical and legal considerations will be discussed.
Case studies involving high profile serial killers will be used to enhance audience knowledge as it relates to this topic. In addition, a PowerPoint presentation, educational handouts, and short educational videos will be used.
The Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy (LPC and LPCC) and Minnesota Board of Marriage and Family Therapy (LMFT) preapprove each workshop for 6.0 CEUs.
