Forensic Psychology in Virginia

The career of a forensic psychologist may be quite different than the idea presented on many popular TV shows. True, psychologists are called upon to determine the mental competency of accused criminals, provide expert testimony, and counsel victims of crime. But they also work as counselors in correctional facilities, help attorneys interpret psychological evidence, and perform child custody evaluations. Forensic psychology schools in Virginia include classes on ethics, victim psychology, consultation and testimony, evaluation of offenders, treatment of offenders, criminal behavior psychology, research, and psychology as applied to the legal system. This is in addition to core psychology courses, such as research methods, the history of psychology, and counseling.
