FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY

How Forensic Psychology is Framing Our Legal System - (added 6-12-12) The field of forensic psychology aims to apply scientific and statistical methods to the realms of the legal system. Using what psychologists and neurologists understand about human behavior and the human brain, forensic psychologists juxtapose scientific objectivity to remove human biases during legal proceedings. From criminal profiling to witness testimony, forensic psychologists influence virtually every step in today’s legal process. This trend will continue as the adoption of statistical testing in psychology and brain scanning in neurology further catalyzes the boom in forensic psychology.
