In Dr. Dobbert's book "Halting the Sexual Predators among Us: Preventing Attack, Rape, and Lust Homicide" (Praeger, July 2004), he clearly explains disorders from exhibitionism to pedophilia, and presents scenes that illustrate precursor behaviors shown by people preparing to act on such disordered thinking. A seasoned forensic examiner, Dobbert enables us to see life through the sexual predator’s eyes, to understand the motives and intentions of people with abnormal and uncrontrollable desires. He argues we can create a safer world by removing the opportunity for such people to act on their ideas. -Praeger Publishing Group, read the full review here.
"Psychopathy, Perversion, and Lust Homicide Recognizing the Mental Disorders That Power Serial Killers" (Praeger, June 2009) 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. -Praeger Publishing Group, read the full review here.
