Forensic Psychology, a History

Forensic psychologists are often asked to provide testimony, assessments or evaluations in both civic and criminal trials. Although viewed as a relatively recent psychological specialty, forensic psychology was introduced well over a hundred years ago. In 1873 Wilhelm Wundt founded the first psychology laboratory in Leipzig, Germany. It was his work that refined and established the experimental method as it applied to psychology. He conducted experiments in the legal arena in areas such as witness testimony and criminal evaluation that are still being used today.


  1. You have a nice blog.I enjoy reading many of the books and papers on building a successful practice but “Change Therapy” by David Diana is one of the most unique yet. It is a collection of articles and stories that read like Levitt’s Freakonomics or Gladwell’s Outliers. The stories are fresh, unexpected and thought provoking. It’s a free download so take a look for yourself or share with your community.
