The Psychology of Attractiveness
Podcast produced by psychologist Dr. Rob Burriss
TV show about a group of FBI profilers in the Behavioural Analysis Unit, the group investigates cases involving serial killers. Each of the killers who are profiled is diagnosed with a specific mental disorder, not only do you learn about a wide variety of disorders through the show but it gives a semi-realistic view of how forensic psychology can be applied in real life.
This show is based on a true story about how the Behavioural Science Unit began studying psychopaths and serial killers in the late 1970s. Instead of studying the crimes, the show focuses more on how forensic and criminal psychology came into society. The show displays a very unique look at how psychologists developed an understanding of criminal behaviour and psychopathology.
