Complete introduction to forensic psychology and understanding psychology's expanding influence on the study of law, crime, and criminality

Highlighting the often-sizable gap between media myths surrounding forensic practice and reality, Forensic Psychology presents a broad range of topics within the field, including detailed treatments of the causes of crime, investigative methods, the trial process, and interventions with different types of offenders and offenses.

To aid in reader comprehension, this Fourth Edition is supplemented with additional online resource materials, including related links, multiple choice questions, and PowerPoint slides.

Authored by a wide range of experienced forensic psychology professionals and drawing on a wealth of experience from leading researchers and practitioners, Forensic Psychology includes information on:
* Psychological approaches to understanding crime and developmental and psychological theories of offending
* Contributions of neuroscience in understanding risk factors for offending and effects of interpersonal crime on victims
* Eyewitness evidence, psychopathy, interviewing witnesses and suspects, detecting deception, and offender profiling and crime linkage
* Interpersonal violence and stalking, judicial processes, safeguarding vulnerable witnesses, criminal responsibilities, and the role of the expert witness
* Rehabilitation of offenders, risk assessment, treating dangerous offenders, and interventions with female offenders and offenders with intellectual disabilities

With comprehensive coverage of the subject and its many important intricacies, the Fourth Edition of Forensic Psychology is essential reading for undergraduates' first encounter with the subject area and is also an excellent introduction for more specialized postgraduate courses.
