Description

The Forensic Psychology Booklet

Potential  students often look for guidance regarding the programs that they are  considering. You are a program assistant at a local university. You have been  asked by your department chair (psychology) to create a booklet about the field  of forensic psychology for potential students. This booklet will be given out  at information sessions and will be sent to students requesting more  information. The department chair asks you to create this booklet with the  undecided student in mind, remembering that while you don’t want to scare  students away, you also want to be truthful about the field. She asks for the  following information to be included:

  • A description of the educational levels required       and recommended (i.e. what can a MA level forensic psychologist do, versus       a Doctorate level professional). Different roles that a forensic       psychologist can take. This can include roles in the court and out as well       as research possibilities. (2 pages)
  • A discussion of each of the following and discuss       why is it important that all forensic psychologists need to be well-versed       in them (3 pages):
      • Case Law
      • Specific Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and         why they are important
      • Important past research in the field
      • Diversity issues
      • Ethical considerations
  • An analysis of at least three aspects of       the American judicial system (such as eyewitness testimony, transfer of       juveniles to criminal court, etc.), which are impacted most heavily by       psychology and psychological research (3 pages). Be sure to discuss:
      • Three aspects of the American judicial system
      • How psychology has impacted these aspects
      • One research study for each aspect that is considered  pivotal, classic or ground breaking in the field.

Your booklet needs to  be at least 8 pages long. Because it is an informational booklet, it will not  be formatted like a formal paper, but should be professionally and attractively  presented. Please remember that all citations should follow APA formatting  rules, and the majority of the information should be in a formal academic writing  style. However, a minority of the information can be written in bulleted  format.
