  • Sigmund Freud: Conflict & Culture (Library of Congress Exhibition)

    Few figures have had so decisive and fundamental an influence on the course of modern cultural history as Sigmund Freud. Yet few figures also have inspired such sustained controversy and intense debate. Freud's legacy continues to be hotly contested. Our notions of identity, memory, childhood, sexuality, and, most generally, of meaning have been shaped in relation to--and often in opposition to--Freud's work.

  • Comparing Applied Methodologies Between Inductive and Deductive Criminal Profiling Techniques

    There are essentially two very different types of profiling being done by criminologists. The first profiling method will be termed Inductive Criminal Profiling, and is related conceptually to the construction of psychological syndromes and subsequent syndrome evidence. The second, less common, method of profiling will be termed Deductive Criminal Profiling. The purpose of this work is to overview the nature of Deductive Criminal Profiling, and demonstrate how its origins, assumptions, and methodology are fundamentally different from the origins, assumptions, and methodology of Inductive Criminal Profiling, and by inference syndrome evidence.

  • The Role of Behavioral Profiling in Unsolved Serial Rape

    The serial rapist knows how to position himself for rape activity, engage in rape activity, and continue to rape successfully, without any concern that law enforcement will understand, identify, and apprehend him. This is because his fantasy motive is a personal dynamic, and because his MO is progressively flexible.

  • Stereotyped adjunctive pecking by caged pigeons

    The casual observation of food-deprived pigeons in their home cages reveals reliable stereotyped pecking (spot pecking) without apparent consequence or apparent eliciting stimulus. The controlling variables of pecking in a simple context such as the home cage may bear importantly on understanding data collected in other situations.

  • The Functions of Postpartum Depression

    Loss of interest in the infant is a prominent symptom of postpartum depression (PPD). Evolutionary approaches to parental care suggest that parents will not automatically invest in all offspring, and should reduce or eliminate investment in their children if the costs outweigh the benefits. Numerous studies support the correlation between PPD and lack of social support or indicators of possible infant health and development problems. (in pdf format)

  • Understanding the Victims of Spousal Abuse

    Beyond conscious hope and relief is an unconscious process of traumatic bonding, learned in infancy and relearned as intimacy is interwoven with abuse. This phenomenon appears in the bizarre attachment of some hostages to their captors known as the "Stockholm Syndrome." It explains why some victims love their abusers.

  • Values and Morals Clarification

    Kohlberg's evaluation of moral decisions was based on the quality of the reasoning behind a person's decision, rather than whether or not some specific behavioral decision was made. The thinking process used by some in stage 6 to decide what is fair and reasonable in a moral dilemma is called "second-order Golden Rule role taking".
