Forensic Psychology / Edition 1by Graham M. Davies
Pub. Date: 07/21/2008
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
