The Issues in Forensic Psychology series has two central aspirations. The first is to promote novel, innovative and relevant ideas within forensic psychology into a wider academic and professional domain. The second aspiration of the series is to identify areas where gaps in resesarch and practice are becoming apparent and for books within the series to identify and respond to areas of emerging need and interest. Issues in Forensic Psychology also aims to approach traditional themes in the field from fresh perspectives as developments in the field take new directions.
