ROBERT-OBLOCK-ACFEI-IPREDATOR-CYBER-ABUSE

Robert O’Block, founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International, announces his support of Dr. Michael Nuccitelli’s introduction to media and the community his pediatric educational moniker, Dr. Internet Safety. As the largest forensic sciences organization in the world, Dr. O’Block and ACFEI support the mission of Dr. Internet Safety to introduce Internet Safety & iPredator Awareness to children of the Information Age.

New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, is the author of a technological predator construct, iPredator. His construct explores the dynamics of people who engage in criminal, deviant, nefarious and malevolent activities using Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Robert O’Block, CEO & founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International. (ACFEI) announces his support of Dr. Michael Nuccitelli’s pediatric educational moniker, Dr. Internet Safety, to media and the community. As the largest forensic sciences organization in the world, Dr. O’Block and ACFEI support the mission of Dr. Internet Safety to introduce Internet Safety & iPredator Awareness to children of the Information Age. 

Technological predators and their pediatric victims are Information Revolution dynamics causing devastation to children, teens and young adults throughout all industrialized nations. As stated by Dr. O’Block, “As an educator living at the beginning of the Information Age, I’ve seen both the educational potential of Information and Communications Technology and the damage it’s caused humanity. In addition to ACFEI’s goal of educating the forensics world of iPredators, it is also vital to educate the pediatric mind.” As part of Dr. O’Block’s educational model, he will be introducing ACFEI member, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli’s construct, iPredator, and his pediatric educational moniker, Dr. Internet Safety.

Children of the 21st century are enamored by the novelty of the Information Revolution. To slow the harm to children and all ICT users, Dr. Internet Safety is announcing his availability free to all offline & online media sources (a.k.a., N.Y.S. licensed psychologist & iPredator author, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli).     The moniker, Dr. Internet Safety, educates all age ranges, but specializes in educating parents, children and adolescents using “net lingo”, Information Age developmental psychology and family dynamics.

Child abuse, whether perpetrated by a child or adult, is detrimental to all aspects of their development following them into adulthood. Stated by Dr. Nuccitelli, “Dr. Internet Safety was developed to hinder the natural instincts of children to rebel against adults attempting to teach them a caution. Instead of Dr. Nuccitelli educating the community on iPredator dynamics and tech. predator profiling, Dr. Internet Safety discusses how “uncool” & “immature” it is to tweet or post how fat, ugly or stupid a fellow student is in their Facebook profile.

Topics Dr. Internet Safety is adept at discussing sensitive to a pediatric consumer base include: cyberbullying, cyberstalking, cyber harassment, cybercrime, online sexual predation, internet culture, mobile device safety, ICT relationship dynamics, cyber psychology & regional/national criminal news involving all forms of ICT. A brief definition of iPredator used to create Dr. Internet Safety is as follows:

iPredator:  A child, adult or group who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage.

iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, internet troll or cyber terrorist, they fall within the scope of iPredator.

Dr. Nuccitelli has created a variety of creative templates to use by broadcast & internet radio and online & offline print media including “Ask Dr. Internet Safety”, “Dr. Internet Safety’s Top 10 List” and “On the iCouch with Dr. Internet Safety” geared to a pediatric consumer base. In return for Dr. Internet Safety’s volunteer time and services, Dr. Nuccitelli requests that the host media outlet encourage their readers, listeners or viewers to work within their communities to design strategies reducing victimization of children using Information and Communications Technology.

Robert O’Block | ACFEI Founder Supports Dr. Internet Safety

Dr. Internet Safety is announcing his availability free to all offline & online media outlets (a.k.a., N.Y.S. licensed psychologist & iPredator author, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli). Given iPredator Inc.’s mission is to increase awareness of technological predation, Dr. Internet Safety is volunteering his time to educate the public. Although Dr. Internet Safety can educate all age ranges, he specializes in educating parents, educators, children and adolescents.

Robert O’Block Supports Dr. Internet Safety

Children of the 21st century are enamored by the novelty of the Information Revolution. Adults, parents & educators are equally intrigued, as well as, unprepared for this societal paradigm shift centralized around Information and Communications Technology (ICT). To slow the harm to children and all ICT users, Dr. Internet Safety is announcing his availability free to all offline & online media sources (a.k.a., N.Y.S. licensed psychologist & iPredator author, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli).

Given iPredator Inc.’s mission is to increase awareness of technological predation, Dr. Internet Safety is volunteering his time to educate the public. The moniker, Dr. Internet Safety, educates all age ranges, but specializes in educating parents, children and adolescents using “net lingo”, Information Age developmental psychology and family dynamics.

As ICT continues to become a growing thread in the fabric of all nations, the people using these billions of electronic and digital devices must learn to identify, at a minimum, the iPredator. The veil of anonymity afforded to all ICT users is taken for granted when used by those engaging in malevolent and nefarious activities. It is for this reason that diligent caution must be practiced. A brief definition of iPredator is as follows:

iPredatorA child, adult or group who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage.

iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, internet troll or cyber terrorist, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

I. A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT. II. The intermittent to frequent usage of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to obtain, exchange and deliver harmful information. III. A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators rely on the multitude of benefits offered by ICT. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in an abstract electronic universe.

Child abuse, whether perpetrated by a child or adult, is detrimental to all aspects of their development following them into adulthood. Stated by Dr. Nuccitelli, “Dr. Internet Safety was developed to hinder the natural instincts of children to rebel against adults attempting to teach them a cautious approach to ICT.

Robert O’Block | Dark Psychology, A Brief Introduction

robert-o'block-acfei-forensics-crime-

robert o’block, forensics, crime dr. robert o’block, dr. o’block, ipredator, forensic sciences, acfei

Robert O’Block, founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International examines a new theoretical criminology construct. Developed by a forensic psychologist & ACFEI member, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, presented for the reader is a new theoretical construct of criminal and deviant behavior called Dark Psychology. Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon others. All of humanity has this potential to victimize other humans & living creatures. While many restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses.

Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings and perceptions that lead to predatory behavior. Dark Psychology assumes that this production is purposive and has some rational, goal-oriented motivation 99% of the time with the remaining 1% of victimization of others without purposive intent or reasonably defined by evolutionary science or religious dogma.

The serial arsonist may not assault other people or find gratification from being a human predator as does the serial killer, but he actually experiences joy and elation from his fire setting. In addition to joy, he feels a sense of accomplishment from the devastation he has caused. His episodes of fire setting are extremely dangerous given he can cause harm to others, but the goal of inflicting pain or bodily harm is not his modus operandi.

For the serial arsonist, the big payoff is his sense of pride and distorted perception of accomplishing a brilliant feat of genius. His perverted sense of achievement will at times lead him to become sexually aroused and masturbation ensues. The arsonist's behavior is reprehensible, illegal and dangerous, but typically does not involve premeditated murder. They live within an abyss of infernal obsession.

Although the Necrophile is not causing pain to another person or victimizing others, his actions are extraordinarily bizarre and absent of any sense of logic. The Necrophilia's need for perceived control is so insidious that he actually develops a sexual attraction to a corpse. Imagine what the experience must be for him. He is sexually aroused by a lifeless body that is expressionless and absent of warmth. Most people yearn for connection during sexual intimacy, but the Necrophile does not require this. He becomes aroused by the experience of a total and complete disconnect. Clearly, his mind has entered a very dark realm.

The serial killer is one of the most despotic characters that manifests from the dark side. In films, court cases and news coverage, the serial killer is frequently a subject of intrigue. The essence of this deviant evil echoes a part of the human psyche that only the serial killer himself can realistically experience. Just as an alcoholic craves his next drink or an opiate addict yearns for his next fix, the serial killer becomes addicted to murder.

The serial killer speaks of the gratification and elevated sense of release once his murder has come to fruition. Unlike the Necrophile or serial arsonist, the serial killer's sole endeavor is to extinguish life. For many of these assailants, sexual arousal by torturing their victims is a common theme.

These four examples are illustrations of the extent to which humans will go for the experience of power, pleasure and/or goal attainment. All of the criminal profiles described, involve assailants feeling a sense of gratification from their abusive and/or heinous actions. The reality is that these examples are merely basic profiles of four segments of the population of men and women who participate in criminal, abusive or deviant acts. The extent to which humans will go for sexual gratification, perceived control or financial gain is quite extensive and elaborate.

Before the advent of scientific advancements and the capacity of society to explain deviant human behavior, monsters and demons were the cause of such chaos. Unable to understand how people could commit such atrocities, metaphysical beings were the only logical explanation. Instead of fearing their neighbors, early civilizations concocted legends and tales of demonic beings. Werewolves, Vampires and Ghouls prowled the night stalking their prey.

Although contemporary society deems itself as advanced in its ability to comprehend the potential for humans to commit violent, heinous acts, learning how to reduce and/or prevent bizarre and deadly actions perpetrated by humans remains elusive. Our species is the only group of living organisms that participate in actions antithetical to our survival. Dark Psychology is both the study of criminal & deviant behavior and a conceptual framework for deciphering the potential for evil within all human beings. Dr. Nuccitelli does not claim to have the proverbial "holy grail" of defining deviant human behavior, but rather a framework for inquiry and further investigation.

Ten years ago when Dr. Nuccitelli first became interested in the study of forensic and criminal psychology, he posited that aberrant deviant behaviors were part of a psychiatric illness not yet determined. With the passing of time and research, intrigue followed from the vast array of theories and explanations for why humans maintain a capacity to prey upon other humans.

The idea of Dark Psychology became Dr. Nuccitelli's theoretical exploration, and he began to formalize a set of concepts he believed plausible. The sum of his attempts ended in narrow concepts aimed at trying to explain the psychopath and sexual predator. Six years ago, he experienced his first paradigm shift pertinent to his present theory.

Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon others. All of humanity has this potential to victimize other humans & living creatures. Dark Psychology assumes this dark side is also unpredictable. Unpredictable in the understanding of who acts upon these dangerous impulses, and even more unpredictable of the lengths some will go with their sense of mercy completely negated. There are people who rape, murder, torture, and violate without cause or purpose. Dark Psychology speaks to these actions of acting as a predator seeking out human prey without clearly defined purposes. As humans, we are incredibly dangerous to ourselves and every other living creature. The reasons are many and Dark Psychology attempts to explore those dangerous elements.

Robert O’Block | Dark Psychology, Criminality and Deviance

ACFEI-Robert-O'Block-Cyber-Justice

Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon others. All of humanity has this potential to victimize other humans & living creatures. While many restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses. Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings and perceptions that lead to predatory behavior.

Dark Psychology assumes that this production is purposive and has some rational, goal-oriented motivation 99% of the time. The remaining 1%, under Dark Psychology, is the brutal victimization of others without purposive intent or reasonably defined by evolutionary science or religious dogma. Presented for the reader are four criminal and deviant profiles along with the introduction of a new theoretical construct of criminal and deviant behavior called Dark Psychology.

The Arsonist is a person with an obsessive preoccupation with fire setting. These individuals often have developmental histories filled with sexual and physical abuse. Common among serial arsonists is the proclivity to be loners, have few peers, and absolutely fascinated by fire and fire setting. Serial arsonists are highly ritualistic and tend to exhibit patterned behaviors as to their methodologies for setting fires.

Preoccupied by fire setting, Arsonists often fantasize & fixate upon how to plan their fire setting episodes. Once their target is set ablaze, some arsonists experience sexual arousal and proceed with masturbation while watching. Despite their pathological and ritualistic patterns, the serial arsonist feels pride in his actions.

Thanatophilia, Necrophilia, and Necrologies all define the same type of disordered person.  These are people, and they do exist, who have a sexual attraction to corpses. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Illnesses by the American Psychiatric Association classifies necrophilia as a paraphilia. A paraphilia is a biomedical term used to describe a person's sexual arousal and preoccupation with objects, situations or individuals that are not part of normative stimulation and may cause distress or serious problems for the person. Hence, a Necrophiles paraphilia is sexual arousal by an object, a deceased person.

Experts who have compiled profiles of Necrophiles indicate they have tremendous difficulty experiencing a capacity for being intimate with others. For these people, sexual intimacy with the dead feels safe and more secure rather than sexual intimacy with a living human. Necrophiles have divulged in interviews feeling a great sense of control when in the company of a corpse. A sense of connection becomes secondary to the primary need for perceived control.

The iPredator is a child, adult or group who engages in psychological and/or physical victimization, theft or disparagement of others. They are motivated by; peer acceptance, malice, spite and criminal or deviant intent using digital technology, telecommunications or mobile devices. iPredators are driven by deviant sexual fantasies, aggressive desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, psychological distortions and personal or monetary gain. iPredators can be any age, either sex and are neither bound by socio-economic status nor racial/national heritage.

Within the next century, iPredators and their acts of theft, violence and abuse will become a global phenomenon and societal epidemic if not squashed. Segments of iPredators include cyber stalkers, cyberbullies, cyber terrorists, cyber criminals, online sexual predators and political/religious fanatics engaged in cyber warfare. Just as Dark Psychology views all criminal/deviant behavior on a continuum of severity and purposive intent, the theory of iPredator follows the same framework, but involves abuse, assault and victimization online in cyberspace.

A serial killer is a true human predator typically defined as someone who murders three or more people over a period of 30 days or greater. Interviews with most serial killers have revealed they experience a “cooling off” period between each murder. The serial killer's cooling off period is a perceptual refractory period whereby they are temporarily satiated with their need to cause pain to others. Criminal psychology experts have hypothesized their motivation for killing is the pursuit for an experience of psychological gratification only achieved via brutality. After they murder, these individuals feel a sense of release combined with egotistical power. The experience for them brings such gratification that they become wanton of feeling the experience of release and gratification once again.

Sexual assault, rape, humiliation and torture are often involved during the course of their murders. Experts at the Federal Bureau of Investigations have outlined other motivations in addition to anger, rage, attention seeking, thrill seeking, and monetary gain. Often, serial killers exhibit similar patterns in their choice of victims, how they murder their targets, and methods for disposal of the body. Criminal experts trained in behavioral analysis concur serial killers have a history of significant emotional, behavioral and social pathology. Although not absolute, serial killers tend to be loners who experience difficulty engaging in functional relationships.

Provided above are four examples of offenders and offender groups who commit abusive and/or violent bizarre acts sharing the common bond of having deep psychological deficits with distorted worldviews. These serious psychiatric and/or personality constructs, which may metastasize throughout their being, defies reason. What is it about these human predators, how do they function and socialize in their day-to-day lives? These brief profiles speak volumes about the dark nature of the human condition. In addition to all sharing mild to severe psychopathology, they all are perceptual loners with deep-seated forces governing their decision-making capacities.

Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon other people motivated by criminal and/or deviant drives that lack purpose and general assumptions of instinctual drives and social sciences theory. All of humanity has this potential to victimize other humans and living creatures. Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings, perceptions and subjective processing systems that lead to predatory behavior that is antithetical to contemporary understandings of human behavior.

Dark Psychology posits that all humanity has a reservoir of malevolent intent towards others ranging from minimally obtrusive and fleeting thoughts to pure psychopathic deviant behaviors without any cohesive rationality. Dark Psychology encompasses all that makes us who we are in relationship to our dark side. All cultures, all faiths and all humanity have this proverbial cancer.

From the moment we are born to the time of death, there is a side lurking within us all that some have called evil and others have defined as criminal, deviant, and pathological. Dark Psychology introduces a third philosophical construct that views these behaviors different from religious dogmas and contemporary social sciences theories. As Alfred Adler stated, "It is the individual who is not interested in his fellow men who has the greatest difficulties in life and provides the greatest injury to others. It is from among such individuals that all human failures spring."

Robert O’Block Announces Commitment

ROBERT-O'BLOCK JUSTICE-CYBER-JUSTICE

Robert O'Block, founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International

Robert O'Block, founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International, announces his commitment to technological predator forensic education. As the largest forensic sciences professional organization in the world, Robert O'Block and ACFEI are introducing information to members and the community relevant to Information Age forensic sciences.   

New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, is the author of new technological predator constructs he has termed, iPredator & iPredator Bridge. His constructs explore the dynamics of people who engage in criminal, deviant, nefarious and malevolent activities using Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Robert O'Block, CEO & founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International (ACFEI) announces his commitment to technological predator forensic education to members and the community. As the largest forensic sciences professional education organization in the world, Robert O'Block and ACFEI are introducing information to members relevant to Information Age forensic sciences.       

Technological predators and their victims are new dynamics causing devastation across all elements of society. As stated by Robert O'Block, “Many people may not know why I started the American College of Forensic Examiners International. The reason is my belief in justice. Justice for all and the safety of Americans. And now that we live in the Information Age, ACFEI will help educate Americans in the forensic sciences, justice and cyber justice.” As part of Robert O'Block’s educational model, he will be introducing ACFEI member, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli’s, two theoretical constructs, iPredator and iPredator Bridge. iPredator was published in the 2011 winter issue of the Forensic Examiner with iPredator Bridge being published in their 2012 winter issue. A brief definition of each is as follows:

iPredator:

A child, adult or group who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage. Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, cyber-criminal, online sexual predator, internet troll or cyber terrorist, they fall within the scope of iPredator.

iPredator Bridge:  iPredator Bridge is a theoretical tenet of iPredator representing the psychological, perceptual & behavioral trajectory of people who use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to harm others. Similar to the iPredator, they are motivated by personal convictions, greed, power, control, narcissismor psychopathology. Different from the iPredator, they have yet to fully engage in criminal/deviant activities using ICT or use complex perceptual distortions to validate the harm they cause. iPredator Bridge investigates why some people draw near to this nefarious and malevolent realm and either proceed in their maladaptive trajectory or cease and desist.

The iPredator Bridge is a symbolic representation of the approach, route and initial crossing into the realm of the iPredator. In a rudimentary and abstract way, it is posited that cyberspace, ICT and all future technological advancements, related to information technology, is an extension of the mind and the instinctual drives of the collective brain to replicate itself outside a human organism.

Dr. Nuccitelli is honored to have Dr. Robert O'Block and ACFEI support his mission to bring to light the widespread growth of nefarious, criminal and malevolent activities in cyberspace. Vital to understanding the theoretical core of iPredator is Dr. Nuccitelli’s staunch belief that iPredators are variants of classical criminals, deviants and nefarious entities. ICT and the Information Age have created a new dimension leading to an entirely new population of humanity engaged in malevolent, harmful and deceptive practices. ICT and cyberspace are not tools used by the sociopath, deviant, narcissist or classic criminal, but part of a new generation that will be permanent fixtures to humanity for centuries to follow.

The study, exploration and understanding of iPredator is the first step in the humanization of global Information and Communications Technology. By understanding iPredator, humanity walks safely in cyerspace.” Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C. (2012)

About iPredator

iPredator was founded in 2012 to provide education, investigation and consultation to consumers and organizations on cyber bullying, cyber harassment, cyber stalking, online sexual predation, cybercrime, cyber terrorism, internet safety and digital reputation. Created by a New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, iPredator’s goal is to reduce victimization, theft and disparagement from online assailants. In June 2012, Dr. Nuccitelli & iPredator launched their Tech Predator Awareness website offering visitors an enormous amount of free information. Dr. Nuccitelli is thankful to have Dr. Robert O'Block and the American College of Forensic Examiners International supporting his mission to thwart iPredators. Dr. Nuccitelli has extensive media experience and truly enjoys educating the public on Cyberbullying, iPredator Awareness, Internet Safety, Internet Culture & regional/national criminal news.
