From the Publisher:
This book is a broad introduction to the field of forensic psychology. While students most often associate forensic psychology with criminal profiling, crime scene investigations, and serial murder, this text covers the many others areas where psychology has played a significant role in providing research knowledge to the civil and criminal justice systems. The book is a readable summary of contemporary research and practice across a broad spectrum of topics. Practical applications are discussed where pertinent, and case law discussions are found throughout the text.

This book is designed for undergraduate and graduate students studying forensic psychology in psychology, criminal justice, and criminology courses. This book will also be of interest to mental health professionals and anyone looking for a basic overview of the field.
