Applying psychology to crime
This is one of a series of books aimed at A level and first-year undergraduate students.
The book aims to provide an introduction to criminological psychology. It assumes no prior psychological knowledge and firmly places psychology in the real-life context of crime. Its approach is to look at different aspects of crime and violence and to relate them back to psychological theory.
Topics include theories of crime and violence, serial murder and rape, violence in the media and in the family, treatment of offenders and eyewitness testimonies.
This series has been developed for the Oxford and Cambridge A level syllabus, but is also suitable for AEB and NEAB psychology A level. The series also aims to provide an important resource for undergraduate studies.
The main aim is to introduce students to the discipline of psychology and to the ways in which psychological theory and research can be applied to everyday life.
