Writing a Handwriting Analysis Report
Analysing and interpreting a specimen of handwriting is only part of the process of analysing a specimen of handwriting. The course teaches how to write a report which integrates the information you want to convey, into a coherent, logical document. Students have access to self directed learning activities online.
Basic Psychology for Handwriting Analysts
This online course provides a basic understanding of personality and character for handwriting analysts. The course is uniquely developed for handwriting analysts who do not have psychology training. The course illustrates psychological principles and theories with samples of handwriting. Students have access to self-directed learning activities online.
Each feature revealed in handwriting is only a clue and should never be regarded in isolation. A disciplined professional handwriting analyst will never jump to conclusions but rather balance and counterbalance features until an integrated picture develops.
The Clustering Refresher course provides a system which aids the handwriting analyst to find balances and counter-balances, ensuring an integrated approach and is a must for any serious and responsible handwriting analyst. Students have access to self directed learning activities online.
Handwriting Analysis of Sexually Abused Children & their Perpetrators
Since what the handwriting may reveal about potential sexual abuse, is very sensitive and potentially explosive, the handwriting analyst learns how to approach this information with the utmost care and responsibility.
It must also be stressed that no handwriting feature on its own indicates sexual abuse. The handwriting feature must be taken in the context of other features present in the handwriting, i.e. approached from a Gestalt perspective.
