Psychologists in Counter-Terrorism

Psychologists who work in counter-terrorism use their expertise in psychology to support law enforcement and national security agencies in preventing and mitigating terrorist threats. This can involve activities such as conducting risk assessments, providing support to interrogators, analysing suspect behaviour, and developing counterterrorism strategies. They may also provide psychological support to victims of terrorism and to the families of those affected by terrorism. These psychologists typically have specialised training in forensic psychology, national security, and threat assessment. They work closely with law enforcement, military, and intelligence agencies to enhance their understanding of the psychological factors that motivate individuals to engage in terrorism.
