As a keynote speaker, Dr. Hamden will discuss: “Psychology of Terrorists: 4 Types”.


Talking on the 1st ASIS International Middle East Security Conference Mr Hamden said: “To learn and understand the 4 types of terrorists, we shall examine the personality profile of the individual – diagnosis, psychological defence mechanisms, and how this can benefit the negotiations process.”


He continued: “The clinical information is critical in the negotiations process. Thinking as the perpetrator can be essential in developing a resolution to the conflict at hand.  It is important to know the patterns of thinking, emotions, and behaviour motives of the aggressor highlighted with such individuals.”


The conference will feature more than 30 high-level educational sessions for and by international security experts that will cover the entire spectrum of security topics ranging from hotel security, loss prevention, and maritime piracy to terrorism, intellectual property rights, and more.
