When it comes to the world of forensic psychology, the field has changed a lot since the 1960s, when psychologists were still working in labs and laboratories were still in their infancy.
Today, with the advent of computers and new technologies, forensic psychologists are increasingly relying on online resources.
This article gives you the basics of the field and how to get involved in it.
What is forensic psychology?
Forensic psychology is a field that investigates the use of forensic techniques in crime investigation.
It is primarily concerned with the use and exploitation of forensic evidence and evidence collected from different crime scenes.
In the past, a lot of the work was done in-house and only after the discovery of DNA evidence did forensic psychologists move into laboratories.
Today there is an increased focus on collaborative research, which means that researchers use online resources such as the University of Oxford’s online database to get access to the full range of information about a crime.
How do I get involved?
To become a forensic psychologist you must first be admitted to an accredited forensic psychology course and you must be a full-time student.
You will need to complete a practical test to become an accredited psychologist.
You must also have a bachelor’s degree and a bachelor of science in the discipline.
Once you have secured the necessary qualifications, you will be expected to join a local professional organisation and become a registered member of the Royal Commission for the Scientific Investigation of Claims Against the State.
You may then complete a further training course, which is called a forensic psychology certificate.
What is a forensic lab?
A forensic lab is a group of laboratories where forensic investigators are working on forensic cases.
In most countries, the forensic laboratories are staffed by forensic psychologists, who are part of a team that is trained to work on the case and analyse evidence collected during the investigation.
In addition to the forensic psychologist, the investigators also use a computer to work in-person.
The forensic lab then uses the results of their work to build a case against the accused.
How long does it take to become a professional?
Once you are admitted to a forensic science course, you must complete a professional examination to become registered with the Royal College of Forensic Psychology (RCFP).
You then will have to complete further training to become Registered Practitioners in Criminology (RPC) – a registered body that is responsible for conducting professional training for forensic psychologists.
In 2017, the RCP was also granted the right to carry out clinical examinations for the purpose of becoming registered as a forensic psychological.
What are the qualifications of a forensic scientist?
A professional forensic scientist is a psychologist who has a recognised qualification in the field of forensic science, such as an A-Level or higher.
It should be at least six years of experience and should be a recognised authority in the profession.
A professional forensic psychologist should also have the following qualifications: a master’s degree in the fields of forensic psychiatry or forensic psychology; a bachelor degree in forensic science; a professional qualification in forensic pathology or forensic pathology.
What does the forensic psychology profession look like in the UK?
The forensic psychology industry is very diverse, but the main areas of research are: forensic science and evidence collection, forensic pathology, forensic psychology and forensic psychology assessment.
Some of the more established organisations include: the Royal Colleges of Surgeons and Forensic Psychologists, the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Surgeon and Forensic Psychiatrists, the British Association of Forensic Psychiatrist and Psychologists and the American Association of Medical Psychology.
What do I need to know about forensic psychology when I start my career?

These requirements include: having the right knowledge and skills, having the appropriate experience and qualifications, being able to communicate effectively and to collaborate effectively, having a strong working relationship with the other members of your team and having a sense of professionalism and respect for colleagues.
If you are applying for a job in the forensic science industry, the following is a list of the most common questions that we ask of candidates:What do you need to do to become licensed?
The first step to becoming licensed as a professional forensicologist is to complete the licensing application process.
The licensing application is an application for a professional licence.
You need to provide information about your qualifications, work experience and a brief description of your responsibilities and duties as a member of your organisation.
You also need to submit a CV, which shows you have a relevant experience and expertise in the area of forensic Science.
You should also provide a copy of your relevant professional credentials.
Once you have completed this process, you need an official copy of the license.
You can do this either by sending a letter to the licensing authority (such as the Royal Victoria Police) or by filling out a form on the website of the licensing body.
