Criminal Justice

Welcome to the website of the Criminal Justice Section of Division 18 of the APA. Members of this section work primarily with incarcerated people and administrators who operate state or federal correctional facilities and detention centers. They provide professional support to one another through an exchange of information concerning the administration, assessment, treatment, ethical and training issues that are involved in this challenging line of work.
