Find a Forensic Psychology School
Many thanks for taking the time to check out my forensic psychology website. My name is David Webb and I have a first class honors degree in psychology and a Masters in Occupational psychology. For a number of years, I was a lecturer in psychology at the University of Huddersfield (UK).
In 2003 I moved to sunny Spain with my family, where I now work as an online tutor and research dissertation supervisor.
It was a result of my research activity that I ended up pursuing an interest in forensic psychology. Since 2000, I've been involved in collaborative research with teams of forensic odontologists (dentists) in the UK, US and Canada.
Forensic odontologists carry out body identification work from dental remains at accident and crime scenes, and at mass casualty sites. For instance in the aftermath of a plane crash and most notably in recent years at The World Trade Center post 9/11.
The research I conducted was primarily to examine the emotional and psychological impact of this kind of work. In a completely different research project, we also explored the forensic implications of biting behavior within the context on a criminal investigation; given that bitemarks are often found on the victims of violent and sexual crime.

Being involved and conducting research with a group that operates under the umbrella of forensic science meant that I had the opportunity to attend a number of forensic science conferences.
Most of the conferences had a forensic psychology or behavioral science section; and as a result of attending presentations on topics such as criminal profiling, my interest in Forensic Psychology was ignited.
I then had the opportunity to co-write an undergraduate course in forensic psychology, which basically forms the basis of the information and topics addressed on the website.
The Thinking Behind The All About Forensic Psychology Website
In recent years the discipline of Forensic Psychology and related topics such as criminal profiling have been the subject of a whole host of books, films and television series. However, despite its continued coverage and popular profile very few people get to study the topic in depth.
One of the main reasons for putting this forensic psychology website together, therefore, was to the make the academic study of forensic psychology much more accessible.
I say academic study because what I hope this site will also offer is a balanced account of forensic psychology, as opposed to the often distorted, sensationalized and inaccurate view promoted in the popular media.
I sincerely hope that you find this new forensic psychology resource informative and interesting.
