Overview

Forensic Psychology: Emerging Topics and Expanding Roles is designed to present the current state of the field, in terms of law, ethics, research and practice. Reflecting the efforts of almost 50 expert contributors, this comprehensive reference provides a basis for conducting forensic mental health assessments consistent with the state of the field as it currently exists and the standard of care that is emerging.

This must-have resource contains coverage of:

  • Mainstream topics such as civil commitment, termination of parental rights, and federal sentencing evaluations
  • Psycho-legal topics such as clergy and teacher sexual abuse, elder abuse, and end of life issues
  • The appropriate application of instruments frequently used in clinical psychology to address psycho-legal issues

Ideal for forensic mental health professionals, civil and criminal attorneys, and advanced students, Forensic Psychology: Emerging Topics and Expanding Roles is the definitive comprehensive reference in the field.

"Alan Goldstein has his finger on the pulse of forensic psychology. He and his A-list contributors showcase a striking array of classic conundrums and budding courtroom controversies. Remarkably, their analysis is as deep as their coverage is broad. There are two or three works that simply have to be on the shelf of every forensic psychologist. This book is one of them."
