Many thanks for visiting All-About-Forensic-Psychology.Com. 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).
A published author, I wrote The Psychology Student Guide in 2012 and The Incredibly Interesting Psychology Book in 2013, both of which are international #1 bestsellers. My latest book, On This Day in Psychology was published in March 2015.
A passionate promoter of psychology through social media, over 850,000 people like my psychology Facebook page and I'm featured on the British Psychological Society list of the 100 most followed psychologists and neuroscientists on Twitter.
It was a result of my research with forensic odontologists that I ended up pursuing an interest in forensic psychology.
Forensic odontologists conduct body identification work from dental remains at accident/crime scenes and mass casualty sites. For instance in the aftermath of a plane crash and at The World Trade Center post 9/11.
The research I carried out examined the emotional and psychological impact of this kind of work and in a separate project I also explored the forensic implications of biting behavior within a criminal investigation; given that bite marks are often found on the victims of violent and sexual crime.

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 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 was ignited.
I then had the opportunity to write an undergraduate course in forensic psychology, which in turn provided the basis for the information and topics addressed on this website. Thanks again for stopping by, I hope you find the website a useful forensic psychology resource.
Based on the criminal profiling content covered on this website, 'Criminal Profiling: An Introductory Guide' is designed to let you dive straight into this fascinating topic. The guide provides clear and concise information on such things as the origins of criminal profiling, FBI profiling methodology and limitations; and whether becoming a profiler is a realistic career path.
If you are interested in criminal profiling and would like to learn more, 'Criminal Profiling: An Introductory Guide' is the perfect place to start. See following link for full details.
