Firstly don’t worry if you still need a bit more time to work, as the online content won’t be closing any time soon.
This week we brought everything we have learnt over the past few weeks together in the form of an assessment test before moving on to explore what lies ahead in the future for the Forensic Psychology field with new research that is being undertaken. This included eyewitness psychology and studies in reading minds and behaviour.
We looked at what issues of ethics and realism need to be addressed when undertaking research into witnesses and also took a look at Psychology and the field of Forensic Psychology as a whole.
We’re pleased to report that we’ve had fantastic feedback regarding this course, and the amount of online participation and interaction we have received during the discussions and activities has been a testament to the learners’ enjoyment.
