Product Description

Review

"In Forensic Psychology and Law , three internationally known experts provide exceptional coverage of a wide array of topics that address both the clinical applications of forensic psychology (e.g., offender treatment; competency, sanity, and risk assessments that inform legal decision making) and the role of psychological science in understanding and evaluating legal assumptions and processes (e.g., the law of confessions, jury behavior, and eyewitness identification). This excellent volume is destined to become a classic among introductory textbooks in forensic psychology." — Norman Poythress , Ph.D., Research Director and Professor, Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute, Dept. of Mental Health Law and Policy " Forensic Psychology and Law is a major contribution to the teaching of law and psychology. Roesch, Zapf, and Hart offer a timely, comprehensive, and succinct overview of the field that will offer widespread appeal to those interested in this vibrant and growing area. Outstanding." — Kirk Heilbrun , Ph.D., Professor and Head, Department of Psychology, Drexel University "In this volume, three noted experts have managed to capture the basic elements of forensic psychology. It is clearly written, well organized, and provides real world examples to hold the interest of any reader. While clarifying complex issues, the authors also present a very balanced discussion of a number of the most hotly debated topics. An excellent text for those interested in forensic psychology or psychology and law more generally!" — Mary Alice Conroy , Ph.D., ABPP, Psychological Services Center, Sam Houston State University

Covers a broad field pretty well 22 July 2013
By John Longhurst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The book covers a very broad field and is informing, however it is slightly basic in many parts and does not discuss nor go into great detail concerning many of the areas such as causes of crime and criminology. This is a book on law as well as forensic psychology, but one of the main factors and most important areas to study when it comes to forensic psychology is the cause of the issues. And since it covers a very broad field, it stays pretty basic. I recommend it to anyone just beginning to study the forensic psychology field, criminal justice, or law though.

The book has footnotes which help a lot. The information in the book is very straight forward and at the same time detailed.
