Document Summary

The field of forensic psychology, also sometimes referred to as the psychology of law, can be challenging to define given the wide range of activities and areas in which forensic psychologists may interact with the legal system. Forensic psychologists can work within and beyond the legal system, and engage in matters relevant to both the civil and criminal sides of the justice system. Psychologists may also work in a variety of capacities, and may have training in areas that include both clinical and/or experimental psychology. The course text provides a parsimonious and straightforward definition of forensic psychology, namely: a field of psychology that deals with all aspects of human behaviour as it relates to the law or legal system (pozullo et al. , 2018). Take a moment to hear from a few experts who work in the field for their take on the kinds of activities and roles forensic psychologists may participate in.
