An introductory text providing comprehensive and current coverage of forensic psychology, appropriate for Canadian undergraduate forensic psychology or psychology of law courses.
Forensic Psychology, 5th edition is a market-leading Canadian text that provides stimulating and accessible course materials by pioneers in the field. The authors have taken a broad-based perspective that incorporates both experimental and clinical topics. The text covers topics that might otherwise be discussed in traditional social and cognitive psychology courses-including eyewitness testimony, jury decision making, and police procedures-as well as topics that are clinical in nature and might otherwise be discussed in traditional personality or abnormal psychology courses-such as the meaning of being unfit to stand trial, mentally disordered offenders, and psychopathy. The authors' goal in this edition was to update important ideas, issues, and research in a way that students will understand and enjoy, and in some cases find useful in their professional careers.
