Forensic Psychology and Criminology is an important original work that recognises the close relationship between criminology and forensic psychology, offering evidence-based psychological research relevant to the legal and criminal justice systems operating in Australia and New Zealand.

Written by a range of experienced specialists, each chapter reflects a major area in which forensic psychologists work, giving a real sense of the underpinning knowledge base from which the profession operates.

This book endeavours to balance the work of academic forensic psychologists, primarily interested in teaching and research, with the applied understanding of practitioners who spend time in prisons, courts, tribunals, psychiatric facilities and other relevant institutions and organisations. Readers will obtain an appreciation of the diverse, complex and challenging tasks that forensic psychologists face on a day-to-day basis, and an understanding of the implications that the field has for psychology as a whole as well as related disciplines. Methodological issues are covered in a way that is relevant to forensic settings, with a focus on implementation and treatment programs.

Forensic Psychology and Criminology is an essential resource not only for students undertaking tertiary studies in the discipline, but also for academic forensic psychologists and practitioners in the field.
