Dr. Dobbert’s newly released book published by Prager, “Psychopathy, Perversion, and Lust Homicide Recognizing the Mental Disorders That Power Serial Killers", is a revealing study of serial killers and their behaviors. Dobbert, an internationally known Forensic Psychologist, demonstrates how perpetrators of lust homicides exhibited behaviors typical of certain mental and sexual disorders that grew to fuel unspeakable acts of violence and murder. Dobbert's analysis examines the psychological development of 22 serial killers and the combination of their particular personality and sexual disorders. He focuses on the signs of these disorders that were missed, mishandled, minimized or ignored by professionals. Dobbert asserts that having a clear understanding of precursor behaviors enables prediction and prevention of such crimes. He also addresses signs of psychopathy and sexual disorders that should alert parents, caretakers, and professions looking to identify and prevent future victimizations.
