The central theme of this book is that forensic psychology can benefit from the insights of many other branches of psychology. The contributors draw on the findings of occupational, cognitive, developmental and social psychology, as well as more familiar clinical and criminological approaches, in order to demonstrate the various ways in which psychology can be applied within the criminal justice system.Chapters include illustrations of the application of psychology to the investigative process, to the analysis of offending, to intervening with offenders, and to increasing organizational effectiveness. The book as a whole reflects the range and synergy that characterize forensic psychology today.
