Forensic and Crime Research Group

What We Do

Research within the FCRG involves the application of psychological knowledge and methods to areas relating to crime and justice. Specific core research topics within the FCRG include: Public attitudes (e.g., attitudes towards people who have offended and their reintegration into society); Gambling and addiction (e.g., identifying and managing risk factors for addiction); Forensic practice research (e.g., the assessment and treatment of offending behaviours, occupational stress among staff working in high-stress environments, and trauma resilience in forensic populations and staff); Investigative and courtroom issues (e.g., supporting transitions and families of people with criminal convictions, accuracy of testimony, police investigation techniques. and courtroom practice); Understanding offending (e.g., examining processes and factors associated with offence-related cognitions and fantasies); and Service evaluations (e.g., evaluating the delivery and efficacy of local rehabilitation schemes).
