Description

Forensic Psychological Assessment in Practice provides readers with real-world examples of the complexity of forensic assessment case analysis. It is appropriate for novice and experienced forensic psychologists and psychiatrists who are looking for case studies that are state-of-the-art and provide a model for conducting forensic psychological assessment, for prospective students who are considering a career in forensic psychology, and for legal professionals who regularly make use of case reports. The authors’ analysis of the presented criminal cases include addressing the forensic referral questions, the choice of test methods, the analysis of raw test materials, and the final formulation of the answers to the referral questions. The cases involve a number of different forensic issues, such as competency to stand trial and violence risk assessment, and the array of offenses demonstrates the diversity in forensic case work.
