Description

The second edition of this award-winning textbook has been thoroughly revised and updated throughout. Building on the success of the first edition, the book continues to address the History and Practice of Forensic Psychiatry, Legal Regulation of the Practice of Psychiatry, Psychiatry in relation to Civil Law, Criminal Law, and Family Law. Important sections such as Special Issues in Forensic Psychiatry, Law and the Legal System, and Landmark Cases in Mental Health Law are included. Designed to meet the needs of practitioners of forensic psychiatry, for residents in forensic psychiatry, and those preparing for the specialty examination in Forensic Psychiatry of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, this volume will also answer the many questions faced by mental health professionals, mental health administrators, correctional health professionals and correctional health administrators, attorneys, judges, probation and parole officers and administrators all of whom, at one time or another, require a substantive presentation of the entire field of forensic psychiatry in the USA.

Reviews

Simply stated, this book finally organizees the subject matter of our sub-speciality in the way it should be done. Probably the most useful reference book for any specialist in this field.
Bulletin of American Academic Psychiatry Law (Revi

…. based on the wealth of information provided, it is a very useful guide on individual problems and isolated aspects of forensic psychiatry even for the European readers, although a more intensive study of secondary literature should not be dispensed with after scutinizing the chapters on "Principles and Practice of forensic psychiatry".
International Journal of Legal Medicine Volume 119

The first edition of this book was an intellectual landmark…the authors have to run as hard as they can to stay where they are. They have done that, and the second edition remains a landmark.
American Psychiatric Association

Dr Rosner, as the editor, has pulled together a diverse set of 105 author experts in 92 chapters for another winning production. It is the kind of publication that I longed for in my training days and still turn to when searching out an area and wanting a review chapter.
