Suggests a holistic and multidisciplinary approach to forensic rehabilitation based on a quality of life approach. Arguing that rehabilitationists are the best qualified witnesses for assessing damages, the author presents the approach as designed to provide a way of measuring pain and suffering for courtroom "enjoyment of life" debates. Assessment strategies for the psychological, physical, social, economic, leisure, vocational, and cognitive domains are presented. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
