Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Forensische Psychologie, Strafvollzug, be aware: 1,5 (CH: 5,5), Universität Basel (Institut für Psychologie), fifty three Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Das rekonstruierte Tatverhalten eines Gewaltverbrechers liefert einem „Criminal-Profiler“ angeblich sämtliche Informationen um detaillierte Aussagen über Geschlecht, adjust, Lebensraum, Intelligenz, Charakter, Persönlichkeitsstruktur, usw. generieren zu können. legal Profiling entwickelte sich zu einer Disziplin, welche zahlreiche akademische und wissenschaftliche Bereiche impliziert.

Im Verlaufe der Entwicklung dieser noch jungen Disziplin kristallisierten sich zwei grundverschiedene Methoden bei der Vorgehensweise zur Profilerstellung heraus. Zum einen die induktive Profilerstellung, welche auf statistische und empirische Daten, sowie auf die individuellen Erfahrungswerte und Intuitionen des jeweiligen Profilers basiert. Zum anderen gibt es die deduktive Vorgehensweise, nach der jeder Fall als einzigartig angesehen wird. Die Profilerstellung erfolgt hier nach streng logischen Schlussfolgerungen und Syllogismen, basierend auf den vorgefundenen Tatortspuren und Beweisen.

In dieser Arbeit wird aufgezeigt, mit welchen psychologischen und methodischen Werkzeugen ein Profiler seine Arbeit verrichtet, welche wissenschaftlichen Theorien dieser Tätigkeit zugrunde liegen und wo die Grenzen des Profiling sind. Es stellte sich heraus, dass keine der beiden Philosophien eine alleinige Existenzberechtigung beanspruchen kann. Beide Methoden sind aufgrund der mangelnden empirischen overview noch sehr stark kritikanfällig. Ferner musste festgestellt werden, dass zur Ausübung des Profiling weder nationale noch internationale criteria festgelegt sind.

Die Auswahl der Fälle beschränkt sich auf Taten, die scheinbar im Kontext einer verletzten Ehre standen und sich in Hessen im Zeitraum von 1982 bis 2010 ereigneten.Anhand der Aktenanalyse werden Einblicke in Täter-Opfer-Strukturen, Hintergründe der Taten und Tatdynamiken gegeben. Weiter wird die Rolle der einzelnen Familienmitglieder, insbesondere die der Mütter, in Hinblick auf das Hervorrufen des Tatentschlusses, die Tatplanung und die Tatbegehung untersucht. Dabei zeigt sich, dass nicht alle untersuchten Tötungsdelikte als »Ehrenmorde« zu klassifizieren sind.Zugleich wird die justizielle Behandlung dieser Delikte vom Ermittlungs- bis zum Hauptverfahren beleuchtet.
