APS College of Forensic Psychologists

There are 524 members in the APS College of Forensic Psychologists.

Forensic psychologists apply psychological theory and skills to the understanding and functioning of the legal and criminal justice system. They often work in criminal, civil and family legal contexts and provide services for perpetrators, victims and justice personnel. Forensic psychology encompasses issues such as: the causes, prevention and treatment of criminal behaviour; the psychology of police, the courts and the correctional system; and the contributions of psychological evidence to legal
proceedings.

Find out about the skills and qualifications of forensic psychologists in the psychologist specialist areas section of the APS website.
