Geographical Profiling Applied: The M25 Rapist

Continuing the recent Crime and Criminology vibe with our films (if you’re interested in Geographic Profiling you might also be interested in it’s better-known counterpart Offender Profiling), this companion-piece to Introducing Geographical Offender Profiling complements the original film by using the example of Antoni Imiela, the man the media dubbed the M25 Rapist because the […]

Introducing Geographic Offender Profiling

For students of crime and criminology, not to mention psychology and sociology, Geographic Offender Profiling is a relatively recent development in our attempts to understand the behaviour of serial offenders – from burglars to rapists to murderers. Unlike it’s Criminal Offender Profiling counterpart, Geographic Profiling is less concerned with the psychology of the individual offender […]

Key Studies and Maths in Psychology

While students who decide to take Psychology at A-level or in High School may be generally aware it involves “some sort of mathematical component”, as the British Psychological Society perceptively notes: “Students beginning A-Level psychology are often disheartened to learn that mathematics is an inescapable part of the subject. Many students are drawn to psychology […]

Countdown to Revision

Or, to give it its full title the “Top Tip Revision Countdown List”. This is a short (2-minute) film I put together (and for “put” you should probably read “cobbled”) as a slightly different way of highlighting some of the things students should be doing – and avoiding – when and if they get down […]

The English-Romanian Adoptees Project

Between 1967 until his violent overthrow in 1989, Nicolae Ceausescu effectively ruled Romania and under his control the government outlawed abortion for “women under 40 with fewer than four children”. One consequence of this was the abandonment of large numbers of children – estimates are frequently put at around 100,000 – to the country’s orphanages […]

A Science of Falling in Love?

Poets, historians and philosophers have, for centuries, provided answers to age-old questions like: Why do we fall in love? What makes us fall in love? And what happens to love once the first fiery spike of attraction fades? But more-recently scientists have joined the debate to explore “the brain in love” and this short film, […]

Of Mice and Monkeys: Ethical Issues in Animal Research

Over the course of the last century, psychological research has become increasingly governed by a strict code of ethics that cover things like obtaining participants’ consent, protecting them from possible harm and allowing them to withdraw from the research at any time and for whatever reason. But there’s also a class of “research participant” who […]

Groundhog Day and the Psychology of Happiness

Over what seems like the interminable days, weeks and months of the past Year of the Pandemic we’ve watched an awful lot of TV. Because we’re Old School and can’t always be dealing with modern tech. And one of the things we’ve watched quite a few times is Groundhog Day. And since we couldn’t get […]
