About this title


This comprehensive new volume on psychology and the law is an essential reference for students and professionals. It offers the most up-to-date information on issues such as malpractive, confidentiality, jury selection, punishment, competency, and the right to refuse treatment.

Two well-known professionals, a lawyer and a clinical psychologist, have teamed up to write this judiciously balanced, clearly presented, and accessible guide to an ever more complex subject. they answer such questions as: What does a lie detector test really tell you? Can law enforcement officials use hypnosis to investigate a crime? Is eyewitness testimony the most reliable and persuasive evidence? Are we living in a more punitive society?

These and other issues are dealt with in a concise, readable manner, one that tells readers how to approach the problems with arise in day-today practive as well as how to think about the fundamental current ethical and legal issues.

Meticulously researched and documented, this important new volume offers a lively presentation, one which is must reading for students of law, and for professionals in both fields who want a complete reference guide.
