Overview

FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY, 1/e presents a clear, complete picture of forensic psychology, covering both psychological and legal principles, and demonstrating their connections through actual case law and clinical examples. Dr. Jack Kitaeff first reviews the field’s history, and the roles, responsibilities, and obligations of practitioners. Next, he addresses criminological aspects of forensic psychology, examining theories of aggression and violent crime; non-violent crimes; and topics ranging from serial killing to terrorism. He thoroughly reviews forensic psychologists’ roles in law enforcement and the U.S. criminal justice system, and covers crucial issues such as repressed memories, novel syndromes, the workplace, children, families, and treatment.
