Overview

This book provides, in a single volume, an extensive, research-based evaluation of the most popular clinical assessment tools as applied in forensic settings. These widely used instruments often require important modifications in their administration and interpretation when used for forensic purposes, and it is vital that the clinician is intimately familiar with their correct application, as well as their limitations. The test instruments included are analyzed by senior figures in the field of psychological assessment who are uniquely qualified to discuss them because they have either had a crucial role in the development of the tests, or they have dedicated their careers to advancing our understanding of these clinical assessment measures. Each chapter begins with a summary of the development of the assessment instrument in its more traditional applications in clinical settings, and then considers its utilization in forensic settings. The types of forensic issues which have been addressed with that instrument are reviewed, and an illustrative case example is given which reflects the types of uses and limitations of the assessment technique when applied in a forensic context. New in this edition are a chapter on the MMPI-2-RF and separate chapters for the adult and youth versions of the Hare Psychopathy Checklist. Psychologists using assessment instruments in applied forensic settings will find this to be a valuable and practical source of information, as will attorneys wishing to gain an understanding of the application of these psychological assessment approaches in the courtroom.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Clearly written and accessible to both the novice and experienced clinician, Forensic Uses of Clinical Assessment Instruments is an invaluable resource in selecting and understanding how to best use popular psychological tests in forensic settings. Drs. Archer and Wheeler have compiled an outstanding group of experts who are able to offer authoritative reviews of their respective measures. Psychologists and attorneys alike will see this book as indispensable when preparing for testimony." - Dustin B. Wygant, PhD, Department of Psychology, Eastern Kentucky University

"In the second edition of Forensic Uses of Clinical Assessment Instruments, Archer and Wheeler provide an updated description of the forensic applications of the most commonly-used psychological tests. In this era of evidence-based practice, it is extraordinarily valuable for every forensic practitioner, legal professional, behavioral science scholar, clinical administrator, and trainee involved with forensic mental health assessment." - Kirk Heilbrun, PhD, Professor, Department of Psychology, Drexel University

"Drs. Archer and Wheeler have assembled a "dream team" of the scholars who developed prominent psychological assessment instruments and provided the forum for these scholars to describe forensic applications of their instruments. The resulting book is remarkably practical. Each chapter is rooted in research and written to inform practice, even providing case examples. This is a handy text for forensic psychologists and other mental health clinicians who work with the justice system." - Daniel Murrie, PhD, Director of Psychology, Institute of Law, Psychiatry, and Public Policy; Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences, University of Virginia School of Medicine

"The editors, Archer and Wheeler, have done an admirable job of putting together a volume that is rich with technical details and studies, both select and significant, yet is readable and accessible. Every chapter of Forensic Uses of Clinical Assessment Instruments is packed with valuable information that could help increase the credibility of evaluators." - William Joseph Ryan, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy Institute, Journal of Personality Assessment
