    I'm researching Jeffrey Dahmer for EPQ.

    If you know an idea/concept then feel free to share. I'm aiming for an A* so I really want to impress everyone.

    Why Dahmer?

    What have you been looking at so far?
    I don't really know why Dahmer. He's just one of the first serial killers I was aware of from a young age and somebody who I've always been intrigued by.

    I've got 3,000/5,000 words so far - I don't want to say what I've been looking at because people can steal my ideas and I'd get a low grade. I just want to stretch far beyond my current level.

    What explanations have you found already?

    Bowlby - if applicable.
    Dollard - Frustration-aggression hypothesis
    Evolutionary ideas that support aggression/testosterone.
    Attachment types
    You could talk about desensitisation due to his role in the Army.
