Welcome to the Forensic Focus blog, blogging the world of forensic psychology by Kelly McAleer, Psy.D. The Forensic Focus blog will discuss issues in forensic psychology such as current legal cases and recent research. Topics will cover forensic psychology in the media, book reviews, and general discussions about crime and human behavior.
I’m excited by the potential of this blog to dig into some of the legal and psychological issues that we see in the headlines so often. I’ve long been interested in the intersection of the two, and indeed there’s a whole specialty field devoted to forensic psychology with a focus on determining the mental state of an individual during and after a crime.
So please give a big shout out and warm welcome to Dr. McAleer!
