Forensic Psychology via distance learning

 

This program of forensic psychology studies the interaction of psychology and the law. It explores how psychological expertise may be applied to the justice system. Forensic psychology deals with the assessment and treatment of criminal behavior, not only with prisoners and offenders, but also any other professionals involved in the judicial and penal systems as well as with the victims of crime. It tries to understand why certain behavior occurs, and how to minimize and prevent such behavior. Forensic psychologists practice psychology within the criminal justice system and civil courts.
