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.

Objective

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.

Results

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.

Duration

01 May 2019 - 01 May 2021

Approach

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.
