I’ll be returning to my classic forensic psych roots for a bit. In the coming weeks, I’m going to sit down with a former KGB operative in a five part miniseries.
We will be discussing his work in Russia as well as in the U.S. from a psychological and political perspective, highlighting behavioral tactics used in espionage, recruitment, profiling, behavioral & arms training, intelligence, interrogations, torture - and his current opinions of what is happening in the US today.
Going beyond the text book psychological studies, past the conspiracy theories or what we consider to be sensational or immoral, I believe this man has a story that needs to be told. A story that at the end, we can all relate to.
