Introduction

Modern day Forensic psychologists are concerned with the application of psychology to the criminal justice system, and with understanding the psychological processes related to criminal behaviour. They are sometimes known as ‘criminal psychologists’ or ‘investigative psychologists’. This is a growing and popular career especially with the rise in Police-related drama on television. Forensic psychology is often perceived as concerning criminal investigation and profiling, and to the assessment and treatment of criminal behaviour. Forensic psychologists work not only with prisoners, but examine the psychology of violent crime, theories of crime and juvenile offender behaviour and offenders but also other professionals involved in the judicial and penal systems. In addition the course explores the psychology of policing and how eyewitness testimony and confessions are integrated into the offence profile through guided activities, knowledge checklists, concept boxes to facilitate and test learning.
