|Looking for some advice.

Hey guys, my name is Keenan. I'm 18 and I'm living in British Columbia, Canada. I've been having some issues trying to find out exactly what I want to be doing in the future and was hoping someone could help me out here with just some guidlines of what I want to be doing. |
For years, since I was about 12 years old I've been fascinated by criminal minds. I've read up a large amount on famous serial killers and mostly youth killers but I have an all around interest in psychology.
How and why people do things, people reactions (generally but enphasizing on why people become tramatized, get shell shock etc) and so on is really what's intriguing to me. I also was a younge offender at the age of 14 year now with a clear record but feel as though, even still to this day was very unjustified and I suppose that is the one main reason why I'm so interested in this career path.
Now, unfortunatly I don't really have anyone around to ask these questions so I'm hoping someone will be kind enough to help me out a bit. I know that Criminal Psychology SOUNDS like what I want to be doing... But looking up the actual definition of the study and other details about it, it doesn't seem to fit just how I want it. I think I'm leading towards more so a Social Worker idea of employment but through my personal experience with them; that's just not exactly what I want to do either.
I want to be working with younge offenders and high profile criminals but as a psychologist not an scene investigator.....? Does anyone have any idea of what I'm thinking of, lol?
