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
