Abstract

The main scope of this book is to present Behaviour Sequence Analysis (BSA) in a user-friendly, applied way, for both academics and practitioners in the field of crime and forensic psychology. BSA is a method for understanding patterns across people’s life histories (e.g., the development of criminal behaviours from birth to adulthood) or particular episodes (e.g., criminal activities, crime scene behaviours). The method is versatile and provides clear outputs of most likely chains of behaviours and events, which practitioners can use to understand the sequence of behaviours.
