Forensic psychology is a recognized specialty within professional psychology, the practice of which requires a specific knowledge base attained through coordinated education and training. As such, anybody interested in pursuing a career as a forensic psychologist should make their national psychology association or representative body a first port of call for information, advice and guidance.
With this in mind, I've provided information links for anybody interested in becoming a forensic psychologist, or anybody wanting to find out more about what forensic psychologists do. This information will relate predominately to the practice of forensic psychology in the USA & UK however, I hope to include related information from other countries in due course.

Drawing on a combined three decades of teaching experience, Costanzo and Krauss help students explore the fascinating intersections where psychology and the law meet, in an excitingly written textbook that presents the latest research in the context of dozens of real cases.
As before, the new edition draws on extensive research in social, cognitive, clinical, and developmental psychology to explore virtually every aspect of the legal system studied by psychologists, emphasizing the ways research and theory deepen our understanding of key participants (e.g., criminals, police, victims, lawyers, witnesses, judges, and jurors) and basic psychological processes (e.g., decision-making, persuasion, perception, memory, and behavior change).
