teen Forensic Psychology

This chapter deals with the areas of practice where clinical psychology interconnects with the law. There are many facets of the law and legal processes where clinical psychologists can be of immense use. Clinical psychologists are not the only psychologists interested in this topic. Biopsychologists, for example, may take an interest in explaining violence, or social psychologists could contribute to the study of jury selection processes. Therefore, this chapter describes the field at large and attempts to clarify where and how clinical psychologists can fit into and contribute to this domain.
