Topic for Research Review PSY 6510 Elizabeth Isbell Northcentral University May 11, 2019 Topic When I started looking for the perfect topic for my research review, I knew that I wanted something that I could tie my prior military experience into. When I went into the American Psychological Association website and into the Topics section, I found the topic labeled “Law and Psychology.” After searching through this topic and into other “tags” within this topic, I have decided that I would like my topic to be Forensic Psychology in Military Courts. Forensic Psychology in Military Courts There are three topics that I think should be covered with this topic: Key differences in civilian and military legal parameters in conducting evaluations, procedures for effectively performing, consulting, and testifying about evaluation results at court-martials, and ethical concerns in the delivery of forensic services. I want to provide a comprehensive review of the many valuable roles that psychologists can play in courts-martial and how they can collaborate with military attorneys to make effective trial teams. Even though psychologists are becoming increasingly important in military trials, many are unfamiliar with the unique nature of this system. Likewise, lawyers often do not know how to effectively utilize psychologists’ expertise. References Ethical challenges for psychology in the justice system. (n.d.).
