Was there a forensic psychologist or other psychologist in the film? If so, what was this persons role (in the case, not in the film) and how effective were they? If not, discuss how a forensic psychologist might havecontributed to the legal proceedings beyond that portrayed in the film (if at all). Were there any other expert witnesses? What were their roles?

forensic psychologist

The essay is made to correspond with learning goals 1, 2, and 4. Consequently, the essay should be crafted to show your practical and critical understanding of the key areas of forensic psychology. This calls on you to show that you have the ability to do research that deepens your comprehension of the ideas and applications discussed in the literature on forensic psychology.
Overview:
A list of possible movies to review for your article is provided below. It is not a comprehensive collection of movies that deal with courtroom drama, criminal activity, or forensic psychology, but it does include a number of movies that cover some of the primary topics covered in the course. You must view one movie from this list and then talk about how the forensic psychology concepts and applications you learned in class are used in the film. Instead of concentrating on the movie’s characters, plot, or subject, your paper will instead focus on the observed practices and issues pertinent to forensic psychology in order to potentially earn a good mark. You must respond to a predetermined set of inquiries about elements of criminal behavior, the victims, and the police and courtroom procedures in the movie. The following is a list of these queries.
You must respond to each of the questions below (numbered 1 through 6), but not to each of their sub-items. The sub-items are merely presented as things to consider; it is preferable to concentrate on the most pertinent aspects of each question, as these will vary depending on the movie picked.
1. Did the movie include a forensic psychologist or another type of psychologist?
If so, what was their function (in the real world, not only in the movie), and how successful were they? If not, describe how, if at all, a forensic psychologist might have added to the court procedures in addition to what was seen in the movie. There may have been more expert witnesses. Who played what part?
2. What part does law enforcement or the police play in the movie?
How well did the cops perform their duties? What aspects of forensic psychology can be used to improve police training, practices, or other aspects? Discuss how forensic psychology might be applied to the role of the police or law enforcement in the case if there isn’t an obvious one in the movie (for the purposes of this assignment, you should consider military police or other investigators where relevant, including investigations conducted by the legal team).
3. Go over the forensic psychology elements that pertain to any investigation that was done.
Was there, for instance, an interrogation? A confession was made? If there was any deception, how was it discovered? What further should (or ought) to have been done, and how would forensic psychology have aided this effort? What kind of evidence was used, and how trustworthy or credible was it? How trustworthy were any eyewitness accounts that were given? What sort of identification procedures were followed, and how might they have been made better?
4. What part did the jury or judge play in the proceedings?
Talk about any forensic psychology-related elements that may have affected the choice or decision-making of the judge or jury.
5. Did difficulties with competency or mental illness need to be taken into account?
If so, what was done with them? What types of decisions could the court or investigators have taken if they hadn’t?
6. Who were the accusers and victims?
Talk about any psychological elements between the victim(s) and the accused (defendants) that might have influenced the crime, the trial, or the decision. Has justice been done? Was the truth gotten?

general advice
Make sure all of the responses you provide to the questions are backed up with citations to works of peer-reviewed literature.
Subheadings should be used to highlight precisely where each question has been addressed. In order, respond to the questions.
Verbosity should be avoided in favor of conciseness.
Keep in mind that the maximum word count for this assignment is 3000. Without exception, content that exceeds this word count will not be read or count toward your final grade.
structural advice
·Title. Your essay needs to have a title that is both brief and informative. You can simply use the phrase “12 Angry Men: A Review of Forensic Psychology in Jury Decisions” to indicate the movie you have watched and the character for the purposes of this assignment. Your first page must be a title page that complies with APA criteria; due to electronic submission, a university cover page is not necessary.
·Abstract. This assignment requires an abstract, which should be between 150 and 300 words long. The same rules that apply to drafting abstracts for research reports also apply here. The essay’s goal or objective is expressed, along with the main theme, supporting arguments, and conclusions, which could also be summarized. After the title page (which is a part of the essay), the abstract should be on a separate page labeled Abstract.
·Introduction. This section should include a concise summary of the topic to be covered, clearly stated essay themes and goals, maybe your primary arguments, and, if necessary, specific terms or concepts. The key is to give the reader enough background knowledge to understand the topic of your essay and what they can anticipate reading about in the essay’s body. In essence, you should state your position’s goal. Introduction is not required as a heading. There should just be a few paragraphs in this area.
·Body. Following the introduction is the body of the essay. The body of your essay should contain a concise summary of your responses to the questions mentioned above for the purpose of this piece of assessment. The organization of the materials is the main structural problem. The methodical organization of all pertinent materials into a presentation that is cogent, logical, and integrated is required. Regardless of the specific approach you take, your essay would be successful if it could persuade the readers that your topics have been clearly stated and your arguments have been supported by solid evidence, whether or not they share your point of view. Please take note that, in general, a smooth flow through suitable paragraph placement helps to accomplish that purpose. It is necessary that you utilize subheadings to denote your solutions to each predetermined question, even if it is expected that your essay will have a logical, cohesive structure with obvious ties between paragraphs.
·Conclusion. After presenting the essay’s body, which serves to explain the thesis to the audience, you should create a summary of the key ideas in order to finish your work. Typically, this is no longer than two paragraphs.
·References. Be aware that the phrase “references,” not “biography,” is used in psychology assignments. This part must be included. The length of your readings is reflected in the list of references. In most circumstances, a single reference in an article (such as your textbook) is insufficient, but neither is an excessively long reference list with numerous unrelated sources. The number of references needed is not predetermined. However, it is doubtful that an argument can be produced that is particularly convincing with fewer than about 6–10 citations.
·Style. Use the sixth edition of APA style. This covers language use, citation style, grammatical conventions, and other things. If you are unsure, please consult your APA manual.
