A conversation with Professor Ann Burgess and John Douglas

Monday, September 17

4:30 p.m.

Boston College, Robsham Theater


In the late 1970s, Boston College Professor of Nursing Ann Burgess, a pioneer in assessing and treating trauma victims, and then-FBI special investigator John E. Douglas helped develop a new type of criminal profiling of notorious serial killers.  The two collaborated for close to 10 years, and Douglas recalled their work in Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit (1995), a book that was basis for the fictionalized Netflix hit series Mindhunter. On September 17, Burgess and Douglas will talk about their experiences developing new insights into deeply disturbed criminal minds.

A reception will follow.
