The mission of the Forensic Interest Group is to develop interest in and momentum for the implementation of forensic psychology and personality assessment within the scope of SPA’s overall mission and to disseminate findings to the membership and SPA Board, to develop membership and Board interests and resources, and to support forensically-relevant publications in JPA, forensic psychology presentations at Annual Conventions, and continuing education workshops.
