What's the talk about?

What differentiates a Serial Killer from Mass or Spree Killers? During this talk, you will discover how Serial Killers are classified, using case studies to illustrate, whilst debunking common serial killer myths along the way.

We will also explore how common homicidal fantasies are. Have you ever fantasised about killing someone? Jennifer will explore the research into the phenomenon.

Difference between male and female serial killers? What is the psychology underpinning the relationships of Killer Couples, exploring issues such as folie à deux (madness of two) and Hybristophilia – why do serial killers gain admirers, fan mail, and even spouses in light of their atrocious crimes?

This talk will be evidence-based throughout, citing the current research from the field in an accessible way.
