Inhoud:

What qualifies as professional and ethical forensic psychological practice in criminal cases? Many textbooks have provided the frameworks, the guidelines and the standards, but not the examples, the  raw reality and the pitfalls of day-to-day forensic casework. This book is our attempt to demonstrate by means of case studies what we consider professional forensic psychological practice, integrating present-day findings from empirical research, knowledge about current legal procedures, advanced training about mental health disorders in relation to crime and violence, and ethical principles, in our casework.
