The congruencies between psychology and law are explored in this collection of learning objectives, exercises, and reference material that addresses the intersection of these two disciplines. In addition to practical topics such as crime and policing, the detection of deception and truthfulness, dangerousness and the risk of violence, and the employment of the psychologist as expert witness, it also discusses modern moral issues such as the role and treatment of child witnesses in legal proceedings, investigative psychology and psychological profiling, and the use of insanity and diminished capacity defenses.
