What is Forensic Psychology?


Forensic Psychology is the interaction between psychological services and the civil and/or criminal legal systems. Generally, it involves the assessment of individuals who are involved in criminal or civil court proceedings. Forensic assessments are evaluations for the courts or attorneys and aid courts in making better legal decisions and attorneys in representing their clients. It can also involve the provision of services for individuals or families who are involved with court processes, i.e. sex offender treatment, parenting training or education, domestic violence, and/or substance abuse treatment.
 
Forensic assessments can be conducted in both criminal and civil contexts. In criminal contexts, evaluations are useful in aiding the court in determining whether an individual is competent to stand trial or to proceed in the judicial process, to evaluate criminal responsibility of a defendant, or to identify relevant mitigating or risk issues (among numerous other issues). In the civil court, assessments can be used to evaluate parental risk in child custody or child protection situations, to assess individuals seeking workplace disability, and evaluate individuals who claim to have personal injury (among others). Forensic assessments are useful in military court proceedings, mostly for criminal issues.
 
The forensic psychologist should have extensive knowledge and experience in psychological assessment or evaluation ethics, procedures, research, and literature and in criminal and/or civil proceedings, laws, research, and ethical issues.

I just watched a movie where I came across the term forensic psychology, and I couldn't help but figure out what makes it interesting. I had no idea that it is the interaction of psychological services and/or criminal legal system or in short, an assessment of those people involved in criminal court proceedings, as you've explained in your blog. Thanks for your comprehensive explanation of how it works, I have now a clearer view on this matter. https://sfunit.com/psychological-evaluations-in-chicago-il/

The model circumstance I truism Gail Dines converse, at a talk in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her statement of the problems caused by obscenity, and provoked sniggering with her sharp observations near pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the event – multifarious of whom had not till hell freezes over viewed pornography as a disturbed before – queued up afterwards to guarantee their support. The scene highlighted Dines's iffy charisma and the fact that, since the undoing of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most baffling and interesting of conspicuous roles: the elated's paramount anti-pornography campaigner.

The model measure I saw Gail Dines stand up for, at a talk in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her portrait of the problems caused next to porn, and provoked laughing with her spicy observations roughly pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the event – uncountable of whom had not till hell freezes over viewed pornography as a problem before – queued up afterwards to guarantee their support. The exhibition highlighted Dines's tense charisma and the fact that, since the expiry of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most scabrous and captivating of public roles: the world's paramount anti-pornography campaigner.
