Why are you linking to Wikipedia pages for these things? Link the freaking study, or don’t discuss it. It really isn’t that complicated. Do not try to make your post look more legit than it is. Do not do it. Links do not help your post if they are shitty links.
If there is a high volume of chats, they also provide numbers you can call.
That’s a great question. The main distinction between criminal psychology and other fields within psychology is the area of focus. The emphasis in criminal psychology is obviously criminal behavior and not behavior in general. When I (and I think most people) think about criminal psychology, they are thinking about forensic psychology, which is the intersection between psychology and the law. Forensic psychologists tend to work in more applied settings and focus on individual behavior change, or other issues that deal with individual offenders (as does their research). Just a reminder, there are not a lot of serial killer profilers out there, and in the US they are all FBI agents in the field. Forensic psychologists can work on profiling in an academic sense, or in areas like treatment programs for offenders, competency issues, and mental health issues with individuals.
My program is not a criminal psychology program, but rather a criminology program. Criminology is more interdisciplinary. It borrows ideas from sociology, psychology, and politics to study law making, law breaking, and reactions to law making and breaking (to paraphrase Sutherland). The major difference between criminal psychology and criminology is the unit of interest. Psychology is geared towards individuals, their thoughts and reactions, and their individual responses to social influences. In criminology, you can focus on the individual, but there is much more research that is concerned with structural factors, social psychological processes, macro and micro interactions, etc. Obviously I love psychology, but my studies also include a lot of sociological research.
Did that help at all? Also, I’m not in a forensic or criminal psychology program so my opinions are based mostly off of the program descriptions that I have read. If anyone out there actually works or studies in that field, send this person a message if you would like to contribute.
There aren’t many that I follow. Here are a few that regularly post about criminology, psychology, mental health, and related fields (anthropology, sociology, etc.):

Am I missing anyone? I really need to follow more people that cover similar topics, but they are hard to find. I really quickly ran through the list of blogs that I follow, so I apologize if I am missing someone. If there are new blogs that are following me that cover similar topics, we should be friends. I also follow a lot of people that are interested in these topics, but don’t regularly post about them.
