New Book - Communication in Investigative and Legal Contexts

Communication in Investigative and Legal Contexts brings clarity to the subject by providing readers with in-depth coverage of the complex area of communication in forensic settings, for example during investigative interviewing of victims, witnesses and suspects / high interest groups, during discourse in courtrooms and via legal intermediaries and interpreters.Drawing on knowledge from forensic psychology, linguistics and law enforcement worldwide, the text is unique in bridging the gap between these fields in a definitive guide to best practice, with chapters written by teams bringing together expertise and specialities from each field.The section Vulnerable individuals, intermediaries and justice was contributed by Brendan O'Mahoney, Ruth Marchant (both well known to intermediaries of course) and Lorna Fadden.Published by Wiley Blackwell
