Neurocriminology for (future) HPE professionals
Neuroscientific knowledge about the origin of antisocial behaviour is growing rapidly. However, in practice, this knowledge is hardly implemented. Antisocial behaviour results from a mix of social, psychological and neurobiological factors. Professionals who work with antisocial youths would benefit from this knowledge.
Brain development and its influence on young people exhibiting antisocial behaviour is a neglected topic when it comes to the education and daily activity of professionals. The HU Research group Knowledge analysis societal security has therefore begun a study in collaboration with Windesheim University of Applied Sciences, aiming to strengthen neuroscientific knowledge among students, lecturers and professionals.
Based on this research, a lesson module will be developed to convey the basics of neuroscience knowledge. Different modules (ranging from one lesson to a minor) will probably be set up to accommodate the different target groups; Bachelor's students, professionals and lecturers.

We will assess what knowledge students, lecturers and professionals already have, as well as their attitude toward neuroscience and the knowledge they hope to achieve.
