Book Description

December 24, 2010 1429205784 978-1429205788 First Edition
Using research in clinical, cognitive, developmental, and social psychology, Forensic and Legal Psychology shows how psychological science can enhance the gathering and presentation of evidence, improve legal decision-making, prevent crime, rehabilitate criminals, and promote justice.  Although the emphasis is on psychological research, the textbook makes extensive use of actual cases and real trials to engage students and to illustrate the relevance of research findings. Written in a clear, student-friendly style, Forensic and Legal Psychology is designed for both the psychology and law AND forensic psychology class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Textbook January 10, 2013
By Adam
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I used this book for my Psychology and the law class and I was very pleased. Most textbooks are dry and dull but this one keeps your interest and reads like an enjoyable book. Each chapter has a few real life stories incorporated to the particular lesson and presents the information in a clear and understandable way such that even if you weren't supplementing the book with a lecture, you would still be able to fully comprehend what is written.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had to buy this book for an introductory course to legal psychology. This book is very well written, it is very engaging and covers all the main theories and cocepts related to Forensic and Legal Psychology.

Once you open a page to a chapter YOU WILL NOT WANT TO PUT IT DOWN.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book arrived quickly and on time for the class. The writing is great and the material is interesting. If you like psychology and are interested in law, this is a great book. I found myself reading the text book and enjoying it. Which is not something I normally do.
Great book! Positive experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a Psych major but I loved it!!! January 12, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was required to read this book for a class and I can honestly say this is the only textbook I have read start to finish and it held my interest. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a better grasp on psychology, also anyone interested in family law or forensic law. The text is very easy to understand, there are a lot of pictures and diagrams and explanations of key words.
