The Minds behind Mindhunter
In the late 1970s, Boston College Professor of Nursing Ann Burgess, a pioneer in assessing and treating trauma victims, and then-FBI special investigator John E. Douglas helped develop a new type of criminal profiling of notorious serial killers. The two collaborated for close to 10 years, and Douglas recalled their work in Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit (1995), a book that was basis for the fictionalized Netflix hit series Mindhunter. On September 17, Burgess and Douglas will talk about their experiences developing new insights into deeply disturbed criminal minds.
A reception will follow.
Please note: This discussion will include photographs of criminal victims and events that some may find disturbing. It may not be appropriate for all audiences.
