Criminological and Forensic Psychology

About the eBook

A truly modern approach to criminological and forensic psychology, this engaging text explores all aspects of the field, from defining forensic psychology, through the psychological explanations of crime and specific crime types, to the application of psychology in detection and investigation, the court room, and prison.

This new edition has been fully updated to include more coverage of social and developmental factors impacting crime, female offenders, and crime in times of crisis, along with a brand-new chapter on stalking and harassment. The inclusion of topical issues such as white supremacy and the #MeToo movement places this book fully in the moment and explores issues that affect us all.

With detailed case studies of real-life crimes throughout, this text is a perfect companion to your studies of forensic psychology at any level.

Helen Gavin was, before retiring in 2023, Subject Lead in Criminal Psychology at the University of Huddersfield.
