Issues and Considerations Related to Forensic Psychology Consultation The term consultation is vague and can apply to a wide array of activities. Yet, in focusing specifically on the legal system and the field of forensic psychology, the more express term forensic psychology consultation is often used to define the consultation that occurs within and between these two fields. The forensic psychology professional often undertakes these consultation activities, acting in the role of forensic psychology consultant. And as with any other role that the forensic psychology professional may play, the consultant role has practical, ethical, and legal obligations that must be taken into account. From consulting on police interrogations to employee assistance work with law enforcement personnel, the practical, legal, and ethical issues a forensic psychology consultant may face can be quite varied and always must be addressed. In this Discussion, you examine the practical, ethical, and legal issues and considerations that must be taken in to account when in the role of a forensic psychology consultant.
