Webinar:  Neurocriminology: A Review for Legal Professionals

June 23, 2023 at 2:00 pm Eastern | 1:00 pm Central | 12:00 pm Mountain | 11:00 am Pacific (1 hour)

Webinar Faculty: Jerrod Brown, Ph.D., M.A., M.S., M.S., M.S.

About the Webinar:
Neurocriminology is at the nexus of neuroscience and criminology and is focused on understanding the neurobiological bases of criminal and violent
behavior. Common methodologies used in this field of research includes brain imaging, psychophysiology, behavioral genetics, and other innovative approaches. Findings from this emerging area of research have the potential to inform the development and administration of treatments (e.g.,
medication, neurofeedback, and brain surgery) that decrease the risk of future crime and violence. Intended for legal professionals, this training introduces attendees to the field of neurocriminology and its potential implications for the criminal justice and legal systems. Related topics discussed during the course of this training include prenatal trauma, early childhood adversity, head trauma, executive dysfunction, nutritional deficiencies, physiological dysregulation, hormones, neurotransmitters, criminal recidivism, sleep disturbances and circadian rhythm misalignment, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis disruption, and gut-brain health axis dysfunction to name a few. Empirically based research findings will be discussed throughout this training.

NAPD doesn't apply for CLE or track attendance to provide certifications for our live webinars, conferences and online courses. This helps us keep the price as low as possible and avoids the disruption of the flow of the training required by many states to verify attendance.
