Providing an excellent resource for forensic psychology undergraduate students, this book offers students the opportunity to learn from experts, through the collection of outstanding articles. Unlike other books in the area that are topic specific, it also gives them comprehensive coverage of the subject.

Divided into five broad topic areas, it covers:

  • professional issues
  • juvenile assessment
  • criminal forensic assessment
  • civil forensic assessment
  • pervasive issues – malingering and psychopathy.

Written by a group of internationally renowned contributors and including didactic information as well as providing discussions on practical issues regarding assessment and assessment instruments, this textbook will be invaluable reading for all students of forensic psychology.

Review:

"I teach a course entitled 'Psychology and Law' which focuses almost exclusively on criminal and civil forensic assessment at Villanova University.  In my experience, most of the existing forensic psychology textbooks (and, more broadly, the law-psychology textbooks) have limited utility for graduate students.  The existing forensic psychology textbooks are written at a broad level, and they are more appropriate for survey courses in which students are exposed to a wide range of topics without much in-depth analysis.  For graduate students who are studying forensic psychology, there is a need for texts that provide more thorough and in-depth coverage of select topics.  Certainly, for students interested in pursuing a career in forensic psychology, a text focusing on the applied aspects of conducting forensic assessments would be quite valuable...I would adopt this book for my course." - David DeMatteo, Villanova University and University of Pennsylvania, USA

"Forensic Assessment is taught every semester at the master's level (multiple sections) and once a year at the doctoral level at my school.  There is clearly a need for this text." - Margaret Kovera, John Jay College
