Application: History of Forensic Psychology

How did forensic psychology evolve into a psychology specialty? Most agree that forensic psychology’s history dates back to 1893 when the first psychology experiment was conducted on the psychological aspects of a witness’s testimony. However, other important events have contributed to the development of the field. The formal recognition of contemporary forensic psychology in the United States is usually dated to 2001 with the American Psychological Association’s recognition of forensic psychology as a specialty. It is an exciting field of study and practice that is evolving from year to year.
