Aubrey Durkinabout this book: The study of forensic psychology is definitely a rewarding pursuit as I found out when I began studying. Forensic psychology is a unique specialty within the field of psychology that applies psychological principles to the law enforcement and legal forum. Its principles are uniquely adapted for use with law enforcement professionals, victims, witnesses, and criminals. Forensic psychology seeks to answer a legal question yet can also be applied to counseling for certain individuals.
One facet of forensic psychology entails studying criminals by looking at examples of criminal offenders. Case studies and typologies help us categorize criminals for better analysis.
Case studies and typologies are important terms in the practice of forensic psychology. For the forensic psychology student, it is important to know how the two terms are different and how they correlate. For example, one can reference a case study of an individual that may fall within one or more criminal typologies. The terms are different but complementary in your studies!
