This work aims to provide an in-depth overview of forensic psychology, bringing together a team of leading authorities in the field to demonstrate the scope and techniques of forensic psychology in key areas of research, policy and practice. The aim is to go beyond the introductory texts on the subject to challenge perceptions, to raise questions for research and to pose problems for practice, to inspire and to stimulate, demonstrating the ways in which forensic psychology can aid the practice of criminal justice.
