Within the field of forensic psychology, our understanding of arson, when compared to other crimes is limited. This is despite the fact that arsonists are an extremely complex offender sub-group. In this fascinating talk, Dr Faye Horsley, Forensic Psychologist and Lecturer at Newcastle University will outline existing research and suggest that a change in direction is required. She’ll present findings from two studies conducted with people who use fire, and explain why these findings could be of use in improving our understanding of arson.
