This practical and comprehensive casebook illustrates principles of forensic assessment using relevant real-world case material. The author's report and commentary provide "teaching points" that are built around actual case reports from expert forensic psychologists and psychiatrists. Including 43 cases in 23 chapters, this volume examines a broad range of civil, criminal, and family legal questions. Topics include Miranda rights waiver, competence to act as one's own attorney, competence to stand trial, juvenile commitment, sanity at the time of the offense, child custody, termination of parental rights, guardianship, and malpractice. This book will be of interest to the growing number of clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and other mental health professionals who are entering the courts to conduct forensic assessments.
