Applied Criminal Psychology provides the reader with a comprehensive and practical guide to psychological research and techniques. Major topics include: (1) mental disorders and criminal behavior, antisocial behavior and personality disorders, the role of the forensic psychologist, risk and assessment; (2) the detection of deceit, eyewitness testimony, cognitive interviewing, forensic hypnosis, false confessions; and (3) criminal profiling, psychological autopsy, and crisis negotiation. Additionally, an overview is provided of the Axis I disorders associated with criminal behavior and the Axis II or personality disorders and their specific relevance to criminal behavior.
