I have a PhD in psychology from the University of Arizona. I've taught college level courses for over ten years.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Our discussions will be focused on psychology, rather than details of crimes. 

For example, for our crime scene profiling discussion, we will talk about crime scenes in general, but I will not go into detail on actual crimes. I created a fictional crime scene for us to analyze involving a stolen homework assignment which involves no violence against a person.

The eye witness memory, lie detection, and science behind juries topics will focus on psychological research and not on any specific crimes. For the insanity defense topic, I will reference past cases where the insanity defense was used. We will not discuss specific details from the crimes.
This material comes from a college level class on forensic psychology.
