This course looks mainly at forensic psychology, but also gives an overview of forensics, including crime scene investigation and other specialist areas. Put simply, forensic psychologists are psychologists that are called on to provide evidence and give their professional opinions in a court of law in order to facilitate a legal decision. They may help in jury selection, determine if the individual accused of a crime is mentally capable of standing trial (competency), profile the criminal and give an opinion of what may have happened or about the person’s sanity.
