When I was brainstorming names for my blog I focused on developing a name that would represent psychology and criminal justice but add a creative flair. The Ink Blotter has a variety of significant meanings. The Rorschach Inkblot Test is a projective test used as a personality assessment. While not commonly used today, it is one of the most well-known psychological tests.
A police blotter is a document distributed by police departments to community members. Typically released through a local newspaper, a police blotter allows the criminal justice system to keep the community informed of nearby criminal activity.
Finally, an ink blotter is a tool used to remove access ink from paper. Like an ink blotter, I hope to help present to you a clear, precise evaluation of relevant criminal justice and psychology issues. The goal of The Ink Blotter is to keep you up to date on important issues in law, public policy, social justice and other related subjects while providing insight on these topics.
I believe that psychology and criminal justice go together hand in hand; it is difficult to understand the criminal justice system without basic knowledge of human behavior. That is why I have dedicated the past 4 years of my academic career to the study of these two areas. It is my hope that The Ink Blotter will not only inform my readers but also allow me the opportunity to learn and improve my critical thinking skills.
