The practitioner-oriented coverage in the Handbook of Forensic Assessment examines:

  • The current state of psychology and psychiatry – including requisite clinical competencies, ethical guidelines, and considerations of multidisciplinary collaboration
  • Various approaches to assessments in criminal and civil matters
  • The principles of effective preparation, data collection, and interpretation, as well as communication for each special situation
  • Topics including competence to stand trial, sexual offender evaluations, addictions, child abuse, and education
  • Overarching practice issues, such as practice development, retention, compensation, consultation, and forensic treatment
  • Includes sample reports that demonstrate the integrative potential of both psychology and psychiatry

Incorporating a wealth of current and multidisciplinary research, the Handbook of Forensic Assessment is destined to become every mental health professional’s most valuable one-stop reference for their forensic work.
