Dr Richard N Kocsis Publishes Breakthrough Research Supporting the Effectiveness of Criminal Profiling

Despite the well-known repute of criminal profiling through a multitude of movie and television portrayals it is surprising that scientifically robust testing of the technique has seldom occurred.

January 12, 2016 (FPRC) -- Innumerable fictional portrayals of criminal profiling such as ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and ‘Criminal Minds’ have cemented into common knowledge the image of intrepid police investigators delving into the psyche of vile criminals as a means for their identification and arrest. Despite the well-known repute of criminal profiling through a multitude of movie and television portrayals it is surprising that scientifically robust testing of the technique has seldom occurred.

Running counter to this trend is the landmark study produced by Australian Psychologist Dr Richard N Kocsis. The research reflects the accumulative efforts of Dr Richard Kocsis and colleagues which spans three decades. The ultimate conclusion of the research is encouraging support for the validity of criminal profiling and thus scientifically verifiable evidence attesting to the abilities of profilers to accurately predict the characteristics of unknown criminals based upon behaviors exhibited at crime scenes.

The international recognition of this research is echoed in the readership statistics since its publication in ‘The Journal of Forensic Psychology Practice’ an international scientific peer-reviewed journal published by the Taylor and Francis Group. The article has quickly shot up the readership statistics of the journal to become the most frequently read article in the 15 year history of articles published by the journal. The significance of these statistics are even more remarkable when it is appreciated that the study was originally published in 2013 and has achieved this status in under two years.

The study is entitled “The criminal profiling reality: What is actually behind the smoke and mirrors?”. The author of the article is Dr Richard N Kocsis who is a psychologist in private practice in Sydney, Australia. The article is available via the Journal of Forensic Psychology Practice website: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/15228932.2013.765733#abstract
