  • Description
  • Details

Comprehensive and erudite, yet down to earth, this book is a practical guide to the psychiatry of offenders with mental disorder, and victims and survivors of crime

This landmark publication has been completely updated but retains all the features that made the first edition such a well established text. It integrates the clinical, legal and ethical aspects of forensic psychiatry with contributions from internationally regarded authors, experts and opinion leaders from a range of clinical professions and other agencies. Almost all chapters have been completely rewritten.

The book is an essential purchase, not only for specialists and postgraduate trainees in forensic psychiatry but also for general adult psychiatrists, and clinical and forensic psychologists. It is also an invaluable reference work for other forensic mental health professionals, including nurses, social workers and occupational therapists; probation service staff; the police; criminal lawyers with an interest in mental health cases; criminologists and sociologists.
