According to Adler and Gray (2010), correctional psychology is the application of psychological principles to individuals convicted of a crime and sentenced to serve time in a correctional setting (including community corrections), whereas forensic psychology (specifically, criminal forensic psychology for purposes of this article) is the application of psychological principles to individuals charged with a crime but who remain in the judicial process (i.e., have not been convicted of the crime with which they are charged). (Morgan et al. 2007: 96) (p. 3).
