This book brings together a team of experts in the field of
forensic psychology to demonstrate the scope of the discipline and
the techniques employed in key areas of research, policy and
practice. Its aim is to go beyond the introductory texts on the
subject to challenge perceptions, to raise questions for research,
to pose problems for practice, and to inspire and stimulate,
demonstrating the ways in which forensic psychology can aid the
practice of criminal justice. It will be essential reading for
students, academics and practitioners. The book is divided into
seven sections, addressing key topics with which the discipline is
concerned ‚ its broader context, investigation and prosecution,
testimony and evidence, correlates of criminality, persistent
offending, intervention and prevention and punishment and
corrections. The contributors include both academics and
practitioners, and are drawn from the UK, the USA and Australasia.
