FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY

 

Forensic psychology is the interface between psychology and the law. Forensic psychologists provide professional psychological expertise within the judicial and legal systems. Most forensic psychologists provide services, which are both clinical and forensic in nature.

DID YOU KNOW...

When a psychologist treats an individual, who was emotionally traumatized by an accident, the treatment is clinical in nature, designed to assist the individual in recovering from the trauma. But, when the psychologist is asked to provide a report for the court, regarding the extent of the trauma, and to assess the psychological damage incurred, then the psychologist is providing forensic services.

 

Forensic psychologists provide services for both the criminal and civil court systems, conducting psychological evaluations, helping to resolve such legal questions as whether a defendant may be competent to stand trial, pose a risk of violence, providing opinions on child-custody, personal injury cases, etc.
