Welcome to the History of Forensic Psychology!

October 5th, 2011

The purpose of this website is to portray the changes found throughout history concerning different types of convicted criminals and how it has impacted the development of Forensic Psychology. We will be examining child delinquency, women criminals, the criminally insane, and organized crime. Our intention is to show how the view of these sub groups has changed and its overall influence on Forensic psychology. We hypothesize that these modifications are due to the alteration of the different zeitgeists in society. It is also important to consider the possibility that these criminals have remained relatively the same.
