No it's not like CSI! Separating fact from fiction within the world of Forensic Psychology

October 20, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
With this very much in mind, a free information website All About Forensic Psychology has been launched to help anybody looking for informed, accurate and detailed information on this fascinating topic. Definitions, history, topic areas, theory and practice, forensic careers, debates, controversies and forensic degree options are just some of the many topics on offer.

Psychology lecturer and website creater David Webb stated that he felt a resource of this kind was needed as misconceptions about forensic psychology were rife, even among his undergraduate students. "I would always begin my first lecture by asking students to write down what they thought forensic psychology was. After a couple of minutes, I would ask for their attention and apologise for forgetting to tell them that they weren't allowed to use the words serial killers, or silence of the lambs in their answer. It was usually at this point that most of the writing stopped."

The All About Forensic Psychology website is the definitive source for information on this much misunderstood topic. Visitors to the site are encouraged to subscribe to the free All About Forensic Psychology Newsletter which includes regular contributions from experts in the field. You can read the latest edition at
