The difference between forensic psychology and criminology is that the latter largely concerns research and focuses on trends in offending behaviour, utilising a lot of analyses and working with data. Forensic psychology is a more direct approach to offending behaviour, almost the practical side of criminology, and is the link between psychology and the law. Most FP's work within the prison service and day-to-day will design and carry out interventions, supervise trainees, conduct research, complete risk assessments and deliver training.
