In The Handbook of Forensic Rorschach Assessment, editors Carl B. Gacono and Barton Evans underscore the unique contribution the Rorschach makes to forensic practice. The chapters, all of which include the expertise of a licensed practicing forensic psychologist, offer a systematic approach to personality assessment when presenting use of the Rorschach in specific forensic contexts.

The book opens with essential information related to the scientific and legal basis of the Rorschach. This section covers fundamental elements for preparing informed court testimony, including admissibility of the Rorschach, the authority of the Rorschach, Rorschach assessment of malingering and defensive response, and presenting and defending Rorschach testimony. Part II addresses models for using the Rorschach in typical forensic evaluations in both criminal and civil cases. The section to follow presents updated references samples for various forensic populations. Gacono and Evans conclude with useful models for the Rorschach use in specialized areas of forensic practice, such as battered women, immigration court assessment, assessing impaired professionals, and working within the field of police psychology.

The Handbook of Forensic Rorschach Assessment is a comprehensive resource designed to guide psychologists in their forensic practice.

Review:

"The clinician already utilizing the Rorschach in the courtroom will that the information it contains to be indispensable in further understanding its use in forensic practice. It might also be helpful in considering its use in a new area of practice. For clinicians trained in the use of the Rorschach but undecided about using it in court, the volume helps to identify the unique contributions of Rorschach findings in addressing legal concepts and questions. Even the clinician familiar with the Rorschach literature might very well be surprised at the wealth of data available on forensic groups. All in all, the Handbook of Forensic Rorschach Assessment is a substantial and valuable contribution to the literature."- Robert G. Thompson, Journal of Personality Assessment. Vol. 1 4, 2015"
