Author Biography - Eric W. Hickey

Eric W. Hickey, Ph.D., Currently teaching criminal psychology at California State University, Fresno, Dr. Hickey also serves as an adjunct professor for Fresno City College and the California School of Professional Psychology. Dr. Hickey has considerable field experience working with the criminally insane, psychopaths, sex offenders and other habitual criminals. Internationally recognized for his research on multiple homicide offenders, Dr. Hickey has published and lectured extensively on the etiology of violence and serial crime. His book, Serial Murderers and Their Victims, 2nd edition, will be published in a significantly revised third edition by summer of 2001. The text is used as a teaching tool in colleges and universities and by law enforcement in studying the nature of violence, criminal personalities and victim-offender relationships. His research is often the subject of newspaper, radio and television interviews including National Public Radio, Larry King Live, 20/20, A&E, BBC, Good Morning America, Court TV, Discovery and Learning Channel documentaries. Dr. Hickey frequently speaks to school and community organizations and provides training seminars for administrators, school psychologists and counselors in addressing crime and the deterrence of violence. A former consultant to the UNABOM Task Force, Dr. Hickey assists various law enforcement and private agencies and testifies as an expert witness in both criminal and civil cases. He conducts training seminars for government agencies involving the profiling and investigating of sex crimes, arson, homicide, as well as stalking and workplace violence. Dr. Hickey has traveled to Israel and trained VIP protection specialists from around the world in profiling and deterring stalkers. He assisted in developing a cyber-stalking training course for the National District Attorney's Association and the American Prosecutor's Research Institute. His latest research, a study of 220 victims of stalking, examines the psychology and classification of stalkers, victim-offender relationships, intervention and deterrence strategies for potential offenders and modes of victim assistance.
