Forensic Psychology


Both correctional psychologists and police psychologists are typically either clinical or counseling psychologists. The text discusses ethical issues that are specific to these two fields and in conflict with the “usual” role of the clinical psychologist. Saint Leo University has adopted six Benedictine Values as part of its liberal arts education. The value of Respect has been identified by the psychology faculty as particularly relevant for this course. Considering the ethical issues facing correctional or forensic psychologists, how can they still demonstrate respect to the examinee or individual involved in therapy, yet not grant full confidentiality? Discuss the ethical limitations, situations in which these limitations apply and suggest ways one can still show respect. The textbook is Forensic Psychology: An Applied Approach by Christopher Cronin (2009). MUST BE IN APA FORMAT WITH IN-TEXT CITATIONS and REFERENCES.. MUST AT LEAST 350 WORD COUNT
