The Thinking Behind The Website



In recent years the discipline of forensic psychology and related topics such as psychopathy and 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 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 distorted, sensationalized and inaccurate view that often appears in the popular media. 


I sincerely hope that you find this forensic psychology resource informative and engaging.
