This modern, interdisciplinary resource is aimed at students and professionals interested in the intersection of psychology (e.g., social, forensic, clinical), criminal justice, sociology, and criminology. The interdisciplinary study of human behavior in legal contexts includes numerous topics on criminal behavior, criminal justice policies and legal process, crime detection and prevention, eyewitness identification, prison life, offender assessment and rehabilitation, risk assessment and management, offender mental health, community reintegration, and juvenile offending. Study of these topics has been increasing since the late 1800s, with people trained in many legal professions such as policing, social work, law, academia, mental health, and corrections. A comprehensive work that provides current empirical information on topics of concern to students who desire to work in these fields, this unique reference work looks at criminal behavior primarily through a scientific lens.
