Given the increase in rates of incarceration and mental health problems among adolescents, there is a growing need to assess the accuracy of adolescents' self-reports. This work provides forensic psychologists and clinicians with approaches, methods, and techniques for assessing the truthfulness of these troubled adolescents. The author of this volume maintains that there is a variety of reasons for deception among adolescents, requiring a careful review of case history and treatment context. Methods and techniques for assessing malingering and deception in both clinical and forensic settings are reviewed, including interview strategies, structured interviews, and established psychological tests. Clinicians are provided with guidelines for selecting appropriate assessment instruments and techniques. Detailed case examples are provided throughout, along with a review of critical ethical consideration in forensic settings.
