An Inside Perspective on Criminal Thinking and Behavior

First Edition

Forensic Psychology: An Inside Perspective on Criminal Thinking and Behavior offers undergraduates a concise, accessible introduction to the field of forensic psychology.

Cairns provides a balance between not just forensics and psychology, but also between theory and practical application. Grounded in the cognitive-behavioral approach and evidence based-practices and research, this text will focus on often-overlooked areas, such as the experiences of victims and first responders and the psychopathy of individuals convicted of mass murder, spree killing, and serial killing.
