Forensic Psychology is a specialized branch of psychology that applies the science of psychology to questions that come before courts of law and to the assessment of dangerousness and sexual dangerousness.
Forensic Psychologists possess expert knowledge and training in these areas and are highly experienced in testifying in court.
Forensic psychologists are familiar with applicable legal concepts and procedures, and they consult with judges, attorneys, and agency heads on a daily basis.
Forensic psychologists are duty-bound to avoid undue influence on their work by financial compensation or other gain and to maintain professional scientific integrity, examining an issue from all reasonable perspectives.
Forensic psychologists weigh all data impartially and maintain integrity by examining issues from all possible
perspectives, actively seeking rival hypotheses.
