Forensic Psychology can be seen as an interface between law and psychology, with the application of psychological science to situations of legal issues. It serves areas within the scope of evaluation, criminal investigation, intervention with individuals (eg, victims, aggressors, police forces) of the justice system. Forensic psychological assessment comes with distinct characteristics from psychological assessment in the clinical area, and with specific ethical considerations. This type of assessment is comprehensive in various contexts of law and brings requirements to all professionals. Forensic psychology expertise is thus covered with specificities in its methodologies depending on the process and the individual being evaluated (eg, aggressor, victim, parent, child).
