Question and answer
Describe two subfields of psychology that most interest you and explain where you might encounter professionals in that field.
Forensic psychologists apply psychological principles to legal issues. This may involve studying criminal behavior and treatments, or working directly in the court system. [ Forensic psychologists often conduct evaluations, screen witnesses, or provide testimony in court cases. Forensic psychologists are often involved in custody disputes, insurance claims and lawsuits. Some professionals work
in family courts and offer psychotherapy services, perform child custody evaluations, investigate reports of child abuse and conduct visitation risk assessments. Those working in the civil courts often assess competency, provide second opinions, and provide psychotherapy to crime victims. Professionals working in the criminal courts conduct evaluations of mental competency, work with child witnesses, and provide assessment of juvenile and adult offenders. ]
