Forensic Psychology Jobs

Forensic psychology is the application of psychology to the field of criminal justice and law; this expertise is essential in court rooms.  Forensic psychologists work with a wide variety of clients in just as many settings.  Typically, forensic psychologists work in courts and private practices.  Many work in civil, criminal and family courts doing a variety of things; such as assessing mental competency of child and adult offenders, providing psychotherapy to crime victims, performing child custody evaluations, working with child witnesses and providing second opinions.

Some conduct research on witness testimonies and jury behavior.  Forensic psychologists are often involved in lawsuits and custody disputes.  They can also provide analysis of a criminal’s mind and intent, treat mentally ill offenders and even consult with lawyers.
