9780198566830: Forensic Neuropsychology in Practice: A guide to assessment and legal processes

Clinical psychologists and psychiatrists are increasingly being asked to prepare reports for legal purposes. These might involve issues regarding the clients own mental state at the time they committed the crime, or it might involve the neuropsychological effects of an injury to a third party. In addition, they might be looking at issues regarding impulsivity, and the role of underlying disorders, such as ADHD and antisocial or borderline personality disorders. These topics are typically the preserve of the field of forensic neuropsychology, yet for many, this discipline is seen as a highly specialized one beyond the scope and skill of the clinical psychologist.l
This book fills a major gap in the literature by providing a practical reference text for clinical and forensic psychologists and psychiatrists who are working in these important areas of forensic consultancy, and who need a working knowledge of neuropsychological assessment and legal processes. Topics include: aggression and violence; learning disabilities and developmental disorders--such as autism or ADHD; epilepsy; amnesia; alcohol and substance misuse, and traumatic head injury. In addition, the book looks at expert testimony, malingering, and other ethical and professional issues. It will help practitioners deal with the clinical and neuropsychological problems in the field and negotiate the legal labyrinths involved in issues such as competency, fitness to plead and stand trial, mental capacity, and mitigation.

With chapters written by leading practitioners and clinicians that provide a synthesis of key knowledge and best practice in their areas, this thought-provoking and pragmatic guide will be essential for clinical and forensic neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, and lawyers.

Review:

Review from other book by this author:
"Trying to make an assessment of the credibility of witnesses is one of the most difficult tasks faced by anyone in our justice system, and professional judges need as much help as lay people in this task. In"

--(Lord Justice Keene, Chairman of the Judical Board)

"Having delved into 'Witness Testimony' last weekend, I found it engrossing. It is a most imaginative and unusual book and should be of great value to practitioners. I am so grateful for this addition to my library"

--(Lord Philips of Worth Matravers, the Lord Chief Justice)

''I can think of no other book like it in terms of accessibility, breadth, relevance and perhpas most importantly ethos - to achieve truth."

--( John Cooper, Barrister, New Law Journal, 2008)

''This is a book great value and interest to anyone engaged in the practice or study of the law."

--( Justice of the Peace, October 2007)

''This highly original and relevant work signposts the way forward in the examination of witnesses. The area of how we should treat live evidence is a prominent and growing area of concern, and the publication of the book is both timely and essential. The empasis of the work is upon the
victim. Indeed, the textbook is dedicated to 'victims, whether of crime or miscarriage of justice'"

--( Criminal Bar Quarterly, April 2007)

"This Book is a worthwhile investment for investigation managers, those responsible for developing and delivering witness interview training and for investigators committed to professionalism"

--( Dr Harfield of the John Grieve Centre, 12 January 2007)'
