Book description

Forensic psychology has developed and extended from an original, narrow focus on presenting evidence to the courts to a wider application across the whole span of civil and criminal justice, which includes dealing with suspects, offenders, victims, witnesses, defendants, litigants and justice professionals. This Handbook provides an encyclopedic-style source regarding the major concerns in forensic psychology. It is an invaluable reference text for practitioners within community, special hospital, secure unit, prison, probation and law enforcement forensic settings, as well as being appropriate for trainees and students in these areas. It will also serve as a companion text for lawyers and psychiatric and law enforcement professionals who wish to be apprised of forensic psychology coverage. Each entry provides a succinct outline of the topic, describes current thinking, identifies relevant consensual or contested aspects and alternative positions. Readers are presented with key issues and directed towards specialized sources for further reference.

Reviews

‘An excellent resource for those new to forensic psychology, for those already established in the profession, and for those in related professions, such as the law and psychiatry, in need of comprehensive guidance and resources to improve the quality of their involvement in a wide range of criminal justice settings. All the core areas of forensic practice are covered in interesting and well written chapters prepared by leading researchers and practitioners. Essential reading for all those in the field.’

Dr Caroline Logan - Greater Manchester West Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and University of Manchester

‘One of the most comprehensive and valuable collections of material for academic and practicing forensic psychologists I have seen. An enormously useful resource.’

Professor Paul Wilson - Chair of Criminology and Forensic Psychologist, Bond University, Australia

'The 134 authors are a ‘Who’s Who’ in forensic psychology … One of the strengths of this handbook is the uniqueness of some of the topics, such as chapters on child soldiers, victims of terrorism, and parole decision making. The book also contains relevant, up-to-date issues, such as a chapter on Internet sexual offending … The editors, Brown and Campbell, are praised for their ambition, vision, and ability to compile such a volume … this 2010 handbook is an essential reference for any forensic science professional.'
