Forensic Psychology is written for undergraduate students of psychology and covers all the main topics in the forensic field, from the committing of the crime, through arrests, the trial process and what happens after sentencing. It is both broad enough to give a comprehensive coverage, and detailed enough to do justice to each aspect. Arranged in four parts, leading experts in the research field have commissioned experienced teachers to provide a teaching resource that is up to date and easy to use on courses.

  • Part 1, The Anatomy of Crime: definitions and measurements as well as theories of why crime is committed are covered
  • Part 2, Investigating Crime: interviewing victims, witnesses and suspects, detecting deception and identifying perpetrators are included
  • Part 3, The Trial Process includes detailed coverage of judicial processes, safeguarding witnesses, evidence, and the role of experts in a number of contexts
  • Part 4, After Sentencing: includes a discussion of the role of sentencing and working with offenders

Dalla quarta di copertina:

Forensic psychology is one of the fastest growing areas of applied psychology. Embracing both Criminological and Legal Psychology, it is concerned not only with how and why crime is committed but also with the investigation, detection and prosecution of offenders and their punishment and rehabilitation.

Forensic Psychology is both broad enough to give comprehensive coverage and detailed enough to do justice to each aspect of this evolving field. The highly experienced editors have selected a team of authors to provide a cohesive teaching resource that is up-to-date and easy to use.

The text is divided into four parts:

  • The Anatomy of Crime covers definitions and measurements as well as theories of why crime is committed.
  • Investigating Crime includes interviewing victims, witnesses and suspects, detecting deception and identifying perpetrators.
  • The Trial Process offers detailed coverage of judicial processes, safeguarding witnesses, evidence, and the role of experts in a number of contexts.
  • After Sentencing includes a discussion of the role of sentencing and therapeutic work with offenders.

Forensic Psychology is essential reading for all undergraduate courses in forensic psychology and an excellent introduction of more detailed postgraduate courses. Extra resources for lecturers and students, such as PowerPoint slides, further reading, weblinks and essay questions are available at www.wileyeurope.com/college/davies.
