Ray Bull is Immediate Past President of the European Association of Psychology and Law (EAPL). In 2010 he was elected an Honorary Fellow of the British Psychological Society, an honour restricted to 40 living psychologists. In 2008 he received the EAPL Award for Life-time Contribution to Psychology and Law. He regularly acts as an expert witness and conducts workshops/training on investigative interviewing around the world. Iris Blandón-Gitlin is Professor of Psychology at California State University, Fullerton, USA. Her research focuses on examining social-cognitive factors that influence people's memories, the detecting of deception, and the elicitation of information from sources in forensic contexts. Dr Blandón-Gitlin also consults in criminal cases and frequently conducts training for professionals in the legal community.
The Routledge International Handbook of Legal and Investigative Psychology explores contemporary topics in psychological science, applying them to investigative and legal procedures. Written by recognized scholars from around the globe, this book brings together current research, emerging trends, and cutting-edge debates in a single comprehensive and authoritative volume. Drawing from both research and practice, this handbook highlights many important issues such as: how to investigate and prosecute rape; the value of emotional affect in homicide investigations; and factors affecting jurors' and suspects' decision making. By considering current research, the authors inform both legal and investigative professionals of findings that are of direct relevance to them, and the steps that can be taken to improve efficiency. This collection will inform investigative and legal professionals, advanced psychology students, academics, researchers, and policy makers. It will also be of great interest to researchers from other disciplines, including criminology, policing, and law.
