Use social learning theory to explain the criminal behavior of Ed Gein.
1/. Explain who the criminal is and what crimes he/she has committed
– It is probably best to focus on one type of crime, particularly if the criminal is versatile in their offending behaviour
– Don’t waste space in your essay editorialising on what the criminal
• Because you will not have access to case files, you will have to rely on media reports etc of the criminal
2/. Connect the crime to childhood environment
In other words, identify the part of the mind that was responsible for the crime
3/. Explain the adaptation from negative experiences to criminal behaviour and how did it lead to this crime?
4/. Evaluate strengths and weaknesses of theoretical approach for this criminal
– What aspects of the crime do not fit this explanation?
5/. Use at least 10 academic resources with in text citations and reference list in APA7
