i have a dissertation proposal due next month i havent even started it,
i study psychology with criminology, and im struggling to find a topic that covers both these areas.
im Particularly interested in the health side of psychology and forensic side of criminology, but so far every topic iv suggested iv been told itll be to much of a hard topic to do,
i just really need some ideas bounced towards me so i can kinda get an idea together of what to do!!

Some suggestions:

Looking at the health-related effects of stress in police officers/other professionals in the CJS (e.g. I wrote a potential proposal on perfectionism in police officers and the effects that could have on PTSD, stress, etc etc)?

Something to do with stigma and offenders, offenders with mental health problems, something along those kinds of lines?

What have your ideas been so far?

Realistically you will find it difficult to get ethical approval to do any study on vulnerable groups (e.g. offenders) or police officers -- that is unless your working on a project for a professor.

Do you need to do a dissertation that covers both areas? You could think of something that you could do with the general public (e.g. on the perception of crime / risks of being victimized). Otherwise maybe something on psychological factors (e.g. personality) that influence people's views on crime?
