What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Already an established authority on this topic, Dr. Reid has delivered once again. Developing a Forensic Practice is just what the doctors ordered—a highly practical, easily readable, and exceptionally well focused guide for staking one’s claim in this expanding area of practice." - Eric Y. Drogin, JD, PhD, ABPP, Harvard Medical School; Former President, American Board of Forensic Psychology

"Dr. William Reid is a senior, experienced forensic psychiatrist who has prepared an excellent practical treatise on developing a forensic practice. This book should be read by every fellow in forensic psychiatry and every psychiatrist who practices forensic work and wishes to be successful and stay out of trouble." - Robert L. Sadoff, MD, Clinical Professor of Forensic Psychiatry and Director, Forensic Psychiatry Fellowship Program, The University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine

"Becoming credentialed is one thing; actually practicing is another. Dr. William Reid, one of our foremost forensic psychiatrists, brings his wisdom to bear on the art and science of forensic mental health practice. This is a most memorable and useful book, the kind of map that keeps us on the path of good work and out of the swamp of litigation." - J. Reid Meloy, PhD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Univ. of California, San Diego; Faculty, The San Diego Psychoanalytic Institute
