Putting it all together: Forensics Psychology- Science and Practice
Science and Practical of Forensic Science
Science and Practical of Forensic Science
According to the recent research, it has been proved that real evidence does not defend people from the opposite key decision. Many investigators make some wrong judgment by accusing the innocent to be guilty. Also, because of their denials and the strong believe in their rights, the innocent will always outlaw their right. Besides, police cannot differentiate a statement that has not been corroborated to be true and the declaration that is false. This implies that the innocent person will engage their innocent person into risk (Bartol, 2012). Due to this effect the reforming forensic psychology should be put into consideration and be practiced to stop and assist in giving necessary protection to the innocents.
A forensic psychologist is a person who is chosen as an expert in a given field (Wrightsman, 2009). In most cases, a forensic psychologist is always called to appear in court as an expert witness to make some key points in cases that involve the brain of a human being. In other cases, a forensic psychologist can be available in cases; for instance, if a person is legally competent to stand before the court and claim for his right to trial. The most important role of the forensic psychologists is the capability of testifying cases in court as a proficient bystander. The psychologist can reformulate the psychological information acquired into an easy language that can be understood by people in a courtroom well.
Forensic psychologist always gets in touch with schooling and evaluating police and any other body that deals with enforcement of the law. Also, it extends to providing criminals files and enforcing them into the law and working hand in hand with the department of police. They also have several key roles in managing stress, managing themselves and their families by providing special treatment and giving out counseling.
They also work with the criminals in setting correction. They play two important roles that include; providing treatment and evaluating those who were imprisoned and also act as researchers or specialist witnesses. Forensic psychology can involve the issue of trial consulting, and this is part of their roles in legal psychology. They work with the attorneys to help in the preparation of case and selection of the jury. They always play a role in preparing witness and attending of seminars.
Practically forensic evaluators are supposed to be in a position of providing the source of the information. They have a lot of exertion in the unlawful justice scheme. In assessing of truthful information basing on the various sources, the forensic psychologist sees the client in a different way than the way others view. Similarly, in any case that an accused person is to stand a trial, the forensic psychologist is the one responsible for that, and the court will appoint for examining the individual. The most frequent question that a forensic psychologist is asked in a court is to make an assessment of the risk and dangerousness an individual can re-offend in the future (Thomas, 1988). Also, the court can appoint a forensic psychologist to examine the defendant’s condition of mind during the time of the offense. These might happen when the court believe that the statement was interfered with during the time of that offense.
Forensic psychology has grown for the past few years. It is working in many legal environments by writing reports, doing some treatments in the community and giving out testimonies in the court as an expert witness. According to my view, forensic psychology has to evaluate and give strong witness in court concerning complicated criminal cases. Forensic psychology has changed the nature of how we take memories and miscommunication. I strongly support forensic psychology to a permanent stay.
