Providing an excellent resource for forensic psychology undergraduate students, this book, unlike other books in the area that are topic specific, offers students the opportunity to learn from experts – through the collection of outstanding articles as well as giving them comprehensive coverage of the subject.

Divided into five broad topic areas, it covers:-

  • professional issues
  • juvenile assessment
  • criminal forensic assessment
  • civil forensic assessment
