Forensic Psychology, 3e is "the" Canadian source of stimulating and accessible course materials for Forensic Psychology courses from some of the biggest names in the discipline. It takes a broad-based perspective that incorporates both experimental and clinical topics and presents the important ideas, issues, and research in a way that everyone will understand and enjoy, and in some cases find useful in their careers. The text covers topics that might otherwise be discussed in traditional social and cognitive psychology courses-including eyewitness testimony, jury decision making, and police procedures-as well as topics that are clinical in nature and might otherwise be discussed in traditional personality or abnormal psychology courses-such as the meaning of being unfit to stand trial, mentally disordered offenders, and psychopathy.

Now available with a MyPsychKit access card for students to use the online Study Guide and interactive practice exercises.

From the Jacket

Forensic Psychology 3rd edition is an all- Canadian, market-leading text. The third edition has been updated to provide a broad overview of this expanding field and reflects recent changes to Canadian legislation. The authors include a new chapter dedicated solely to the assessment and treatment of young offenders, as well as increased coverage throughout on psychopathy, domestic violence, and homicidal offenders.

 

FEATURES of this well-written and lively text include:

  • NEW: "You be the ___" [Judge or Forensic Psychologist or Police Officer] features giving students opportunities to take an active role and apply material to real scenarios.
  • NEW: boxes called "In the Media" add interesting asides on Canadian cases, legal rulings, or "hot" topics in the news.
  • Opening vignettes to provide students with a context for the concepts and research they will encounter in each chapter.
  • Canadian Researcher Profiles are included in every chapter, with seven of them new to this edition: Dorothy Cotton; Stephen Porter; Maggie Bruck; Marnie Rice; Alan Lescheid, Donald Dutton, and Martin Daly.
  • Theoretical perspectives are discussed and examined in every chapter.

--Brent Snook, Memorial University of Newfoundland

 

"This text is the most up-to-date, comprehensive, and empirically guided textbook that reviews issues pertaining to Psychology and the Law, and the only one to sufficiently accomplish this from Canadianized content."

--Michael Woodworth, University of British Columbia Okanagan

 

"I would describe it [the text] as well written, current, lively, and scholarly. A terrific overview of the ways in which psychology and the criminal justice system interact in Canada."

--Peter N.S. Hoaken, The University of Western Ontario

 

"The book is well written in an easy to read and understand[able] fashion with content that is interesting, piquing, and stimulating students' interest in the field of forensic psychology."---Abe Worenklein, Professor, Dawson College and Sessional Lecturer, Concordia University
