The central theme of this book is that forensic psychology can benefit from the insights of many others branches of psychology.

The contributors draw on the findings of occupational, cognitive, developmental, and social psychology, as well as more familiar clinical and criminological approaches, in order to demonstrate the various ways in which psychology can be applied within the criminal justice system. Chapters include illustrations of applications of psychology to the investigative process, analysis of offending, intervening with offenders, and increasing organizational effectiveness and safety. An introduction aids assimilation, reflection, and integration of the material. The book as a whole reflects the range and synergy that characterize forensic psychology today.
