about

Forensic Psychology is designed for use in forensic psychology courses and can also be incorporated in sociology, criminology, or criminal justice courses.

To educate and inform readers on the rapidly evolving forensic psychology field, Forensic Psychology breaks the discipline into five distinct categories—police psychology, investigative psychology, criminal psychology, correctional psychology, and legal psychology. While each section is addressed separately, it clearly illustrates how all five are integrated in the practices of the criminal and civil justice system.
