WHAT IS FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY?
Forensic Psychology involves the interplay between psychology and the law. Forensic psychologists are sought to provide opinions in civil, criminal, and other medico-legal and quasi-judicial matters. For example, forensic psychological evaluations are frequently requested in civil litigation cases to render expert opinion about psychological injury, and in the criminal realm evaluations often play an integral role in decisions about sentencing and release. Unlike forensic psychiatrists, forensic psychologists often use psychological testing to support their findings and to assist in answering complex legal questions.
