Agreements with Public Institutions



The Behavior and Law University Foundation maintains agreements with Public Institutions which allow the establishment of different research avenues and shared activities. For the past few years, by virtue of these agreements, our annual Conferences have been held at Civil Guard and National Police facilities.

More than 2000 members of Spanish Law Enforcement and Penitentiary Institutions have accessed pioneering training in behavioral analysis and criminal profiling. Also, annually, a variety of members of these institutions access scholarships to go through our training.

Besides all of this, our master’s degree students also benefit from the possibility of doing their internships and Master’s thesis with law enforcement experts on behavioral analysis and profiling.

Scientific Research

Our main objective at Behavior & Law is the promotion of scientific research on the subject of Behavioral Sciences and Forensic Sciences. We are drawn to research areas which lead to practical results and multidisciplinary teams made up of researchers and professionals from the forensic and behavioral worlds. Also, we collaborate with universities and research institutions at the international level and we establish scholarship programs to finance research areas.

Nonverbal”, was the Non-Verbal Behavioral Analysis Group, founded in 2012 by a group of researchers interested in taking a deep dive into this rigorous scientific subject. “Forensic Research Group”, created in the year 2012 followed research areas which were focused on forensic science subjects.

Our activity is focused on different research groups, which also include different work areas regarding human behavior or forensic sciences. Due to the increasing amount of research areas and the fact that many of them exceed both NonVerbal and Forensic Research Group’s scopes, they joined and create the “Behavior & Law Research Group” so as to give coverage to all present and future research endeavors.

The 16th of April, 2015, a group of psychologists and doctors in psychology, whose professional development has been in areas of intelligence, psychology and scientific research, started up the group known by its acronym in English, PSYCINT, which stands for “Psychology Intelligence”.

Psychological intelligence may be defined as the discipline which studies all contributions made by psychology towards the area of intelligence: theories, methods, tools, applications, etc.

Our mission is clear: to promote tools useful in supporting intelligence activities (planning, design, execution and disclosure), related with intelligence and security, always respecting and abiding by rules of scientific production, deontology and any necessary security classification.  We work on applied scientific research, academic collaborations, training, conferences and periodic meetings.

Science Divulgation

Behavior & Law has established, among its avenues of activity, four clearly defined channels for scientific outreach. Our outreach channels are:

Scientific Conferences

Every year we carry out unique scientific conferences and other meetings with top-tier professionals. In each event we focus on current and interesting content: lie detection, document falsification, behavioral analysis, profiling…

Get more information here about past Conferences.

    But we’ve also carried out daily sessions, seminars and much more.

    Review our past events and find out about our next event dates here.

    Science Journal

    Outreach through our scientific journal at the Behavior & Law University Foundation Journal is designed based on the “Open Journal System” framework and it allows free download of all its articles. Publishing costs are covered by the Behavior & Law University Foundation, so there is also no cost for authors. You may access it from the following link:

    Science for everyone

    After more than 9 years of existence, more than 350 published articles and 60,000 annual readers, the Non-Verbal Communication Club offers a meeting point for all those interested in the world of non-verbal communication, providing up-to-date information on the subject. The only blog at an international level in which you will find articles on non-verbal behavior, published in scientific journals, summarized and translated in Spanish (access the Non-Verbal Communication Club clicking HERE).

    At the Forensic Sciences Club, we translate the most relevant articles and studies regarding these sciences, amounting to more than 200 available articles and more than 35,000 annual readers (access the Forensic Sciences Club clicking HERE).

    The “Mentirapedia” is a collaborative encyclopedia developed by students from the Master’s Degree in Non-Verbal Behavior and Lie Detection at the Distance University of Madrid (UDIMA) and at the Guatemala Valley University (UVG), in which all concepts regarding research on lying, in its widest scope, are collected. (access “Mentirapedia” using this link).

    Also take a look at our blog titled “Questioned Document Cases”, a blog about Forensic Calligraphy and Document Examination cases, as told by teachers and students of the Master’s Degree in Forensic Calligraphy and Document Examination (access the “Questioned Document Cases” blog by clicking HERE)

    Created alongside the behavioral economics division at Behavior & Law, this blog will offer summaries of scientific articles, opinion pieces, practical cases, definitions and all types of information in regards to behavioral economics (access the behavioral economics blog clicking HERE)

    Currently, our book “Comportamiento no verbal: Más allá de la comunicación y el lenguaje“, which is our first scientific manual on non-verbal communication, which explains the scientific foundations on which it stands, completely and holistically, is available at Editorial Pirámide. You may look it up clicking on the book image.

     

    The Antifraud Behavioral Analysis Institute (IACA), incorporates the know-how which Behavior & Law has been building up for years, as a result of our work in the academic sphere, alongside law enforcement y different experts on fraud assessment.

    These foundations build an Institute with the objective of collaborating in the fight against fraud, in any of its forms, through the promotion of scientific research and the attainment of development and innovation in different applied areas in which fraud management takes place.

    With that objective in mind, the following work areas were created:

    Science Area. In it, we develop academic and research studies which contribute towards the generation of knowledge.

    Applied Area. In it, innovation and protocols are generated which are readily applicable in different sectors. Currently, the following developed protocols exist:

    • SAFE-IN (Insurance).

      Behavioral analysis protocol developed specifically to analyze, detect and manage insurance fraud.

      Through SAFE-IN, an analysis is implemented based on scientific evidence from the neurosciences regarding detection and proof of deception.

      It is able to discover behavioral differences between the fraudster and the honest insured person. It also improves quality, because it goes unnoticed by the honest insured person.

    • SAFE-SI (Security Interview).

      Behavioral analysis protocol specifically developed to evaluate and manage internal fraud at businesses, committed by employees (losses, theft, etc.) through a security interview.

      Security departments will be able to count on SAFE-SI as a method of procedure during the interview with which they may apply filters which conclude between fraud and honesty.

    • SAFE-IT (Incapacidad Temporal).

      Behavioral analysis protocol developed specifically to evaluate and manage medical leave fraud.

      Unjustified medical leave accounts for a significant impact on results balances. Implementation of SAFE-IT will amount to substantial savings thanks to its effect on leave reduction and prevention of these types of irregular conduct.

    Would you like to get professionally certified as a criminal profiler or as a behavioral analyst?

    Criminal Profiling and Behavioral Analysis International Group (CPBA) allows you to get international professional certification in various criminal profiling and behavioral analysis specialties. CPBA is a group which pursues development and promotion of scientific knowledge in the field of behavioral sciences, especially regarding criminal profiling and behavioral analysis applied to forensic contexts. With said certification, professionals are able to accompany their works with an exclusive seal of quality, which guarantees training which is complete, up-to-date and continuous, alongside adherence to an ethical and deontological code which offers professionalism and rigor.

    Along with other activities developed by the CPBA, this group has a Think Tank in which several of the most important behavioral analysis and criminal profiling law enforcement units, from different countries, participate, which have come together to create an idea lab so as to always be on the cutting edge of innovation and development in this field.
