Review quote

The book's coverage of psychic processes and their effect on inner and outer world phenomena mark its importance for all who are involved with difficult patients or clients. It is the first major book on forensic psychotherapy marking a developmental milestone in this speciality. It is therefore a must for libraries and any institution or organization, which involves itself practically or academically with offender patients. It has immense personal appeal...written in a style that conveys respect and a sensitivity for the patient and their difficulties. The many areas incorporated in this book mean that there is always something, which resonates with the various wishes and expectations of the reader, whether they be theoretical or mainly practical. The ability of this text to intellectually stimulate and make emotional contact with the reader is only rivaled by its potential to impart knowledge. * IAFP Newsletter * A welcome reminder of how important the psycho-therapeutic aspect is in the forensic-psychiatric patient's treatment during both hospital and outpatient treatment... Forensic Psychotherapy gives the basic knowledge to understand the offender's psychological traumas and their association with violent behavior... Having this book, the reader will be convinced that as a forensic psychiatry worker his goal is not only to minimize criminal behavior but also to maximize the offender's quality of life, irrespective of the type of crime committed. Forensic Psychotherapy provides the reader with an impressive array of information, and we recommend it to all interested professionals. * The Lancet * The book's coverage of psychic processes and their effect on inner and outer world phenomena mark its importance for all who are involved with difficult patients or clients.
