September 23-27, 2013 - Advanced Bloodstain Pattern Analysis Workshop

September 23-27, 2013
Instructors: Toby Wolson, MS and LeeAnn Singley, MS
Northeast Forensic Training Center, Bethlehem, PA

This advanced level course is designed for practitioners who have successfully
completed basic instruction in Bloodstain Pattern Analysis, and who desire to
build toward greater expertise in the discipline. The workshop will begin with a
brief review of the basic concepts of BPA and will require the student to apply
those concepts in mock crime scene settings. The crime scenes, with their associated
clothing and physical evidence, will be completely processed. This will involve BPA
documentation,stain selection, bloodstain pattern analysis, report writing, verbal
presentation of findings, and defense of those findings. In this way, the entire range of
BPA methodology will be practiced and employed. Some cases will involve the
consideration of autopsy findings and forensic biology reports. All cases will involve
discussion of case specific analytical limitations, quality assurance and context bias.
