"Many psychologists testify in court as expert witnesses, help in jury selection, work in prisons, and are involved in rehabilitation activities. But they are almost all clinical psychologists fosucing on individual cases rather than bringing empirical research to bear in judicial proceedings. One main reason, as Emotion and the Law: Psychological Perspectives inadvertently makes clear, is that researchers and those trained in the law have utterly different, and incompatible worldviews.
As it stands, Emotion and the Law may nevertheless be useful for graduate students in forensic psychology and criminal justice as well as to legal scholars concerned with how psychological processes may influence judicial decision making. If it serves to bring these groups closer together, so much the better." — PsycCRITIQUES, July 20, 2011
