Profiling in policy and practice by David V Canter( )

23 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in English and held by 2,116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychological contributions to the investigation and prosecution of crime raise many important questions; about the ethical implications for such interventions, the appropriate ways in which they can be incorporated into law enforcement activities, their scientific validity and their legal acceptability. Drawing on the use of psychology in a range of actual criminal cases, the present volume answers these crucial questions about the implications of 'profiling' for policy and practice." "The volume is essential reading for anyone who has a professional involvement in the use of psychological expertise in the investigative and legal processes. Students and researchers will find it to be a valuable reference source to a range of material not normally available. It will be of interest to everyone concerned with the rapidly growing utilisation of psychology by detectives and the courts."--Jacket
Psychology and law : bridging the gap by David V Canter( )

25 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 1,877 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important book captures contemporary attempts to build bridges between the two very different disciplines of law and psychology, and establish the true nature of the interaction between the two." "It is unusual both in including contributions from lawyers, psychologists, sociologists and criminologists as well as in the very diverse range of jurisdictions from which they come, including the USA, Europe and Australia. The book sets out to bridge the inherent gap between the practice of law and the profession of psychology at an international level." "The book will be essential reading not only for academics and professionals in psychology, the law, and related disciplines, wishing to understand the broadening base of psychology within the legal process but also for students trying to form an understanding of the emerging science and the associated career opportunities for this exciting field."--Jacket

Safer sex in the city : the experience and management of street prostitution by Maria Iannou( )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 822 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thoroughout history prostitution has always been present and has usually been a source of fierce debate. Societies have either grudgingly tolerated it or tried (always unsuccessfully) to ban it. But with the emergence of much more overt acceptance of all forms of sexual activity, it has become more apparent that sex workers who ply their trade on the streets of our cities are a particularly vulnerable group. Awareness of this has led to an increase in research and policy discussions focused on the sex industry, particularly on issues concerning the safety of sex workers and the recognition that street prostitutes are particularly vulnerable to violent attacks and assaults. Realising that such violence is unacceptable in a civilised society and is often the breeding ground for assaults against those who are not in the sex industry, this volume provides a basis for understanding and considering the options available for managing this violence. In this book, current research and policies are reviewed by leading authorities from many different countries- academics and practitioners - from the fields of law, criminology, sociology and investigative psychology. The book will therefore be of value to researchers, practitioners and policy makers who want to understand the experience of street sex workers and the strategies available for managing this trade and for helping to reduce the violence against the men and women who conduct it

The role of psychologists as experts in court is reviewed, followed by a look at how psychologists work with prisoners. The psychology of the victim is also examined.

Facet theory : approaches to social research by David V Canter( Book )

14 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and German and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work has the aim of making facet theory, and the approach to research which derives from it, more accessible to behavioral and social scientists than has been possible in the past. In a first section the book gives the background to the theory and associated methods of analysis, illustrating the major components of the ap­ proach in use. A second section then provides detailed examples of the applications of the facet approach in developmental, clinical, and environmental psychology, as well as in studies of attitudes and mental performance. The third section provides some further technical details on recent developments in the facet approach as well as a computer program listing. The facet approach to social and behavioral research can be traced at least to the late 1940s (as discussed by Gratch, 1973) and the logical principles on which it is based have clear roots in Descartes' algebra and Fisher's experimental designs
