ECU researcher publishes international book
Friday, 27 August 2010
Congratulations to Post Doctoral Research Fellow, Dr Adrian Scott whose book entitled, ‘Forensic Psychology’ was released last week.
Available internationally, the book offers a broad and varied introduction to forensic psychology, including the theories of offending and how psychological research has informed the different stages of the criminal justice system, from offender profiling to the treatment of offenders.
The book is part of an eight book series published by Palgrave Macmillan, entitled ‘Insights in Psychology’, which covers a range of key topics including sport, intelligence, media, forensics, addiction and relationships.
Each book is written by a subject specialist who teaches and researches at university level, with the aim to inspire confidence in students and teachers and entice people to study psychology at any level.
This is the first book written by Dr Scott, who was thrilled to contribute to the psychology series.
“It was fantastic to be given the opportunity to write this book and I was overwhelmed by the support I received from colleagues in the Sellenger Centre at ECU.”
“I hope the book will provide the interested reader, high school students and university students with an accessible insight into this fascinating area of psychology,” said Dr Scott.
The series will be officially launched on Saturday, 11 September at Waterstones Bookstore in Bath, UK and will be attended by academics, teachers and authors in the series.
