Forensic Psychology Research Group

A multidisciplinary and collaborative team

Exploring criminal behaviour from the perspectives of causation, assessment, treatment, and management; plus, an examination of factors that help desist from crime. 

The Forensic Psychology Research Group comprises of academics, practitioners, and postgraduates with research backgrounds in secured contexts (e.g. forensic hospitals and prisons) as well as community correctional settings (e.g. probation, police), and third sector agencies working within the criminal justice context. The group examines crime from a range of perspectives including those who perpetrate crime, victims and their families, professionals working within the criminal justice context, and the wider general public.
