Making conversation with murderers and sex offenders.
It is a crucial part of Luke Broomhall's job as a forensic psychologist - to take an interest in the lives of people who are despised, and remove judgement.
Delving into their stories, the often heinous crimes committed and the motivations behind them, enables Luke and his team at Broomhall Young to provide reports and assessments often relied upon by the courts.
Luke talks about the minds of violent and sexual offenders, and how mental illness doesn't always lead to a conclusion of mental incompetence.
He shares his insights into psychopaths, and how they not only fill our jails but also our boardrooms.
Luke's forensic work is increasingly crossing over into the workplace, as organisations seek better ways to understand and manage staff behaviour.
He shares the benefits of positive psychology, and the growing importance of understanding the impact of mental health on performance.
Luke is motivated by the belief that anyone can change, with the right motivation.
Luke Broomhall holds a Masters in Forensic Psychology and has a wide range of experience in clinical treatment, general counselling and forensic assessment. Luke has provided treatment programs in drug and alcohol, aggressive behaviour and gambling addiction. He has also worked extensively in providing 1:1 treatment for PTSD, anxiety and depression. He is a member of the Australian Psychological Society and of the APS College of Forensic Psychologists.
