Mental health professionals are frequently called on to perform forensic assessments for a wide variety of court cases.

Now fully revised and in a second edition, Essentials of Forensic Psychological Assessment is that source.

The Second Edition is completely updated to reflect current research and theory in the field, including the most recent codes and standards published by the American Psychological Association. In addition, this volume offers updated coverage of the most frequently used instruments in forensic psychological assessments, including the MMPI®-2 and MMPI-2-RF, PAI®, Rorschach®, ASPECT, and various neuropsychological assessment instruments.

Like all the volumes in the Essentials of Psychological Assessment series, this book is designed to help busy mental health practitioners, and those in training, quickly acquire the knowledge and skills they need to make optimal use of major psychological assessment instruments. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.

Written by a noted forensic psychologist, the Second Edition offers in-depth coverage of maltreatment and domestic violence, as well as the assessment of recidivism, fitness to stand trial, civil commitment, substance abuse assessment, custody evaluations, personal injury assessments, and many other aspects of forensic mental health practice.

From the Back Cover:

Quickly acquire the knowledge and skills you need to confidently administer, score, and interpret the key assessment instruments used by forensic psychologists

There are various psychological areas that must be addressed when performing forensic assessments. In order to do this properly, professionals need an authoritative source of advice and guidance on how to administer, score, and interpret these tests. Written by a noted forensic psychologist, Essentials of Forensic Psychological Assessment is the first and only book to provide forensic psychologists and other mental health professionals involved in court cases with state-of-the-art interpretive and administrative guidelines for the most widely used assessment tools (including the ASPECT, BPS, PCRI, TSI, MPS, MMPI-2, and the WAIS-III).

This book covers custody cases, expert witness assessment, fitness to stand trial, civil commitment, substance abuse assessment, and many other aspects of forensic mental health practice. The author provides information on the validity of each test, compares their relative strengths and weaknesses, and offers valuable advice on clinical applications. Each concise chapter features numerous callout boxes highlighting key concepts, bulleted points, and extensive illustrative material, as well as test questions that help you gauge and reinforce your grasp of the information covered.
