Forensic Psychological Services

Supporting Your Criminal and Civil Justice Needs

Middlesex University staff have fresh ideas couched within the academic prowess and reputation built over decades of research, teaching and community engagement.  For more than 20 years, our interdisciplinary research centres have led the way in independent evaluation and multi-methodological approaches to complex problems in Britain, Europe and beyond. We have been at the forefront of community engagement work, minimising exclusion and assessing the impact of national strategies on local areas.  Social Scientists at Middlesex are well integrated into European Research communities and have excellent national and international research reputations and partnerships.

Forensic Psychological Services (FPS) at Middlesex University builds on these firm foundations to offer continued professional development; evaluation; research; consultancy and supervision to those working in and around criminal and civil justice. FPS supports a wide range of organisations including: local authorities, prisons, police, probation, government departments, youth offending teams, charities as well as individual practitioners and those training to practice. We work to standards set by professional bodies, statutory requirements and legislation. Our services are underpinned by Middlesex University’s academic framework to safeguard quality assurance.

Forensic Psychological Services is run by Prof. Joanna R. Adler (Director) and Miranda Horvath (Deputy Director).
