Research Focus
Criminal / forensic psychology

Daniel Boduszek, Ph.D., is a Professor of Criminal Psychology at SWPS University’s Faculty of Psychology in Wrocław and a Professor of Forensic Psychology at the University of Huddersfiled, UK. As a young man, he moved to Ireland to study psychology. While completing his internship at Dublin’s prisons he conducted numerous conversations with offenders and asked himself: ‘Why do people get in trouble?”. He discovered that offenders display criminal social identity, which led him to develop an Integrated Psychosocial Model of Criminal Social Identity. Professor Boduszek also observed that the offenders who scored high on the psychopathy traits scale, developed the criminal social identity much faster. Based on these findings, Professor Boduszek created the Psychopathic Personality Traits Model, which has been verified during the largest study on the criminal population ever, conducted in Polish prisons, and subsequently in the United States in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. Nowadays, this verified and well established Model of psychopathy is used around the world.

If you want to be a good psychologist, you have to love people. We have to have this connection with our patients and also in general with people we work with. Even when you go to prison and you deal with someone who is doing time, remember – it is a human being, and your job is to help him or her.
