Forensic psychology is primarily intended to provide professional psychological expertise within the judicial and legal systems. The distinctiveness of forensic psychology is its advanced knowledge and skills reflecting the intersection of legal theory, procedures and law with clinical issues, practice and ethics.
This booklet, A Collection of Forensic Psychology Articles, highlights some of the leading psychological research today on topics ranging from sexual assault on college campuses to police community partnerships.
When curating this selection of articles, APA’s scientific staff drew from four of the leading journals on forensic psychology. We encourage you to visit these journals on our website at www.apa.org/pubs/journals where you can access them as well as hundreds of papers in the field of forensic psychology.
