   schema:description "Synopsis: Forensic psychology is one of the fastest growing areas of applied psychology. Embracing both Criminological and Legal Psychology, it is concerned not only with how and why crime is committed but also with the investigation, detection and prosecution of offenders and their punishment and rehabilitation. Forensic Psychology is both broad enough to give comprehensive coverage and detailed enough to do justice to each aspect of this evolving field. The highly experienced editors have selected a team of authors to provide a cohesive teaching resource that is up-to-date and easy to use. The text is divided into four parts: Anatomy of Crime covers definitions and measurements as well as theories of why crime is committed. Investigating Crime includes interviewing victims, witnesses and suspects, detecting deception and identifying perpetrators. The Trial Process offers detailed coverage of judicial processes, safeguarding witnesses, evidence, and the role of experts in a number of contexts. After Sentencing includes a discussion of the role of sentencing and therapeutic work with offenders."@en ;
