Features: Used Book in Good Condition
By (author): Robert I. Simon, Liza H. Gold
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 offers 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.
