Overview

The Editors have once again assembled some of the foremost experts in forensic psychiatry for this thoroughly revised and expanded second edition of their classic text. A versatile resource, The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Forensic Psychiatry is valuable not only for practicing psychiatrists (both the general clinician and the forensic specialist) but also for psychiatric residents, those enrolled in forensic fellowship programs, and other mental health professionals. Organized around case examples and featuring an index of legal cases, the book provides the context clinicians require to navigate the legal system, understand their role as expert witnesses, and practice professionally and ethically.

Evolving with current trends to fill critical gaps, the book offer new chapters on forensic geriatric psychiatry and forensic psychiatry and the Internet, topics that will only increase in importance over time. It also offers an updated chapter on ethics, which takes into account the ongoing evolution and clarification of the ethical role of forensic psychiatrists; an extensively revised chapter on psychological testing; and thorough coverage of starting and managing a forensic psychiatry practice.

Current and exhaustive in coverage, the new edition will surely take its place as the preeminent textbook in the field.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Steven T. Herron, MD (University of Arizona Health Sciences Center)
Description: This comprehensive book compiled by numerous well known authors is a strong introduction to the complex concepts involved in the practice forensic psychiatry. It succeeds where other books have failed as it separates the wheat from the chaff, breaking down complicated ideas into digestible pieces.
Purpose: As this book suggests, most forensic examinations are completed by general psychiatrists without subspecialty training in the field. This book is meant to provide education about the legal system and the role of the psychiatric clinician, both general and forensic, in this specific arena. The book exceeds lofty expectations.
Audience: Primarily geared toward general psychiatry clinicians, this book explains basic concepts vital for understanding the complexities of the field. It also provides a succinct review of significant topics for forensic practitioners. Importantly, it should also be immensely valuable to those training in general psychiatry.
Features: While Part I of the book, "Introduction to Forensic Psychiatry," is well written, it is somewhat superfluous. The meat of the subspecialty is contained in the remaining portions covering civil litigation, criminal justice, and special topics. Particularly relevant, usually overlooked, and practical subjects include the practice of psychiatry in correctional settings, forensic psychiatry relating to law enforcement, and the use of actuarial scales in risk assessment.
Assessment: This book is wonderfully written in clear and concise language, managing to break down complicated topics into lucid, useful subject matter. And while it is not as comprehensive as Principles and Practice of Forensic Psychiatry, 2nd edition, by Rosner (Arnold, 2003), it is much better suited for the less experienced or casual learner. In addition, it is a book that will undoubtedly be useful in the education of general psychiatry residents on a wide variety of forensic topics.
