This is a comprehensive overview of law and psychology for the beginning student. You will get a thorough understanding of the requirements and laws going forward as a forensic psychologist. Although it is a basic beginning book, it is also very extensive. There are useful case studies, numerous citations and complete discussions of the issues a forensic psychologist will encounter and need to know to be effective.

I took a course in forensic psychology and this book was used. There is good information in this book but it's poorly written. The editing is poor and the content is very confusing. Each chapter's content jumps around, making it difficult for the reader. Even the outlines that Sage provides do not agree with the material.

I am very disappointed in this book and have discussed the inconsistencies with my professor.

There is a lot of good information in this book, but it is poorly written. For example, here is but one sentence in chapter 2. "Precisely when police psychology began is unclear." WHAT?? So to re-phrase.... It is precisely unclear when police psychology began?

How about...IT's UNCLEAR when police psychology began!

First of all, if you are going to write a textbook, please don't start a sentence with an adverb. Secondly, the purpose of a textbook is to be clear, and to convey your thoughts in a concise manner. The problem that I have throughout this book is that it is full of "driftwood", meaning alot of excess words that are not needed to make the point. The sentence structures and verbose tangents make it confusing for the reader....

Example:
"Even before police psychology officially began, psychologist Louis Terman (1917), using the Standord-Binet Intelligence Scale (one of the earliest "IQ" tests), tested the intelligence of applicants for several firefighter and police officer positions for the city of San Jose, California, in 1916"...... Notice there are two dates here. 1917 and 1916....so which is it???

GET TO THE POINT! In 1916, psychologist Louis Terman tested the intelligence of public service applicants using the Standord-Binet intelligence scale. PERIOD!!

Sorry to be so critical, but these books need to be edited!

This is a great book for learning about forensic psych. If you are thinking of entering the field or if you are teaching psychology and need to use some references for a section on forensics, this is a great book. It has many uses, really.

I purchased this textbook because it was required for one of my masters program classes in Forensic Psychology. I would not recommend this book for any practicing forensic psychologists or students of forensic psychology for one very important reason as follows. First of all, in Chapter 11, on page 384, the authors claim that Munchausen by Proxy (MBP)is a form of child abuse that "subjects a child to medical attention without any true medical condition or symptoms being present." This is incredibly misleading. Munchausen by Proxy is a form of child abuse HOWEVER, it is NEVER limited to medical symptom falsifications nor the doctor-patient relationship as alleged by the Bartols. The DSM-V on page 325 describes MBP child abuse as follows: "Factitious Disorder Imposed on Another ... Falsification of physical OR psychological signs or symptoms, or induction of injury or disease in another." (American Psychiatric Association, 2013, p. 325). In plain English this means an adult who presents a child to any law enforcement, CPS, medical doctors, social worker, psychologist, or Judge as being sick or psychologically ill when in fact they are not and the fact that they are not sick or psychologically ill is known to the perpetrator. This is the pathology and authors like the Bartols who continue to mislead students and other mental health practitioners actually work at preventing MBP perpetrators from being discovered and in my opinion contribute to this form of child abuse.
