Division of Forensic Psychology

DFP Scotland

Division of Forensic Psychology represents psychologists throughout the United Kingdom who are working in Criminal and Civil Justice systems. Whilst there are many commonalities in the practice of colleagues across all geographical regions there are also key differences. Given that Scotland has its own legal system and devolved parliamentary powers, it was agreed that a national Scottish branch would ensure appropriate representation and decision making.

 As such the Division of Forensic Psychology Scotland (DFPS) was set up in 2006 to represent DFP members living in Scotland. The creation of DFPS will allow forensic psychologists to take a fuller part in informing development and debate in those issues where they are stakeholders.

The DFPS web page contains information on the DFPS strategy, progress in achieving the strategic objectives, committee membership, and future DFPS events. All information can be accessed under the subheading 'DFP Scotland'.

DFPS Email List

Occasionally, we need to contact all DFP Scotland members, and while we can do this via mail shots and information can be posted on the DFP Scotland website it is both convenient and economical to send some messages out via email. Consequently, we have set up an email list for members to which announcements can be sent. We hope it will make for effective communication of important information both about the Section itself and related matters.

The e-mail list will be for announcements only and so you will not be able to reply to the e-mail address. The e-mail list will only be used to communicate information directly relating to the DFP Scotland. If at any time you do not wish to continue receiving e-mails from the list, you will be able to unsubscribe.

In order to comply with the Society’s Data Protection Act registration, we need you to opt in to be included on this e-mail list. Instructions on how to subscribe are contained in the below document:
