How to Communicate
With a Serial Killer
It's not every day that a clinical psychologist is able to interview a serial killer, and when one does, how does she get a serial killer to communicate? A graduate student interviewed Altemio Sanchez, the "bike path rapist," for a case study master's thesis. This webinar will contain information on techniques used when communicating with the killer, samples of written correspondence, and the killer's perspective on what made him communicate.
1. Identify how to glean important information from a serial killer's writing and mannerisms.
2. Describe techniques used to build rapport with a serial killer.
3. Identify signs of a shift or change within a serial killer.
4. Describe the serial killer's viewpoint on taking a person's life.
