What is Forensic Psychology?

Forensic psychology is the interface of the practice of psychology and the law. Psychologists with this specialization may work directly with clients and families, or may work with attorneys, schools or other institutions that have interaction with the client. Forensic Psychologists provide wide range of services. These services include but are not limited to screening, psychological assessment, individual therapy, group therapy, anger management, crisis management, court-ordered evaluations, and risk assessments. They may also consult with the school system, victim advocates, and court systems on a variety of mental health related topics.
