Criminal Psychology: Understanding Terrorism – A Taste of Criminal Psychology With Jen Phipps From Aberystwyth University

February 9 @ 14:15 - 15:00



We are delighted to present the Taste Of series from Aberystwyth University which showcases different subject disciplines. Students will be engaged in a lively interactive discussion that provides enrichment of their current studies whilst bringing to life the wealth of academic possibilities available at university.

In Understanding Terrorism – A Taste of Criminal Psychology, Jen Phipps from the Department of Law & Criminology offers students the opportunity to see how psychology can help us to explain and understand a certain type of crime, so that we might better police and prevent it.

The session will provide an overview of how terrorist organisations manipulate ‘fear’ for their own agenda.

Students will be given an insight into the power of psychology and how it empowers and facilitates extremist and terrorist ideals, for their own agenda.
