"Clearly written and substantially updated by a stellar cast of contributors, the volume is packed with diagnostic clues to a broad range of feigned conditions and guidelines for conducting definitive research. I recommend this extraordinarily useful book as a constant companion for anyone involved in practicing or studying the assessment of impression management." - Irving B. Weiner, University of South Florida; President (2008), Society of Clinical Psychology, USA
"Clinical Assessment of Malingering and Deception, Third Edition, will serve as the authoritative work on response style for years to come. The assessment of feigning is the cornerstone of any forensic mental health evaluation. This book is a 'must' for all forensic mental health professionals, and doubtless will be frequently consulted for the most up-to-date information on research and practice."
- Alan M. Goldstein, PhD, ABPP, ABFP, Professor Emeritus, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, City University of New York
"This eagerly awaited third edition is more than just an update. Coverage encompasses the fabrication of symptoms by civil litigants, feigned psychosis on the part of criminal defendants, the minimizing of negative personality characteristics by law enforcement applicants, and many other topics. Continuing the tradition of prior editions, the volume emphasizes a scientific approach to the evaluation of malingering and deception. This is a 'must have' resource for psychologists and other practitioners who work in forensic settings. General clinicians, particularly those involved in interviewing and assessment, also will find it a very useful reference." - Glenn J. Larrabee, independent practice, Sarasota, Florida, USA
"This is the foremost text on malingering. I have used it in the classroom and in practice for over 10 years. Each subsequent edition is updated with the latest research by noted authors in the field." - Richard P. Conti, Department of Psychology, College of Saint Elizabeth, Morristown, New Jersey, USA
"This edited book, which consists of 24 chapters by experts in the field, is in its third edition. It demonstrates the remarkable expansion in the field of malingering and other forms of deception since its first edition in 1988. Major advances have taken place in the development of detection strategies, which include the use of multiple measures rather than relying on a single test, and their solid conceptual foundation and empirical validation... A huge strength of the book is the exceptional breadth of relevant subject matter, the appropriate detail and comprehensiveness of each chapter and their consistently good quality." - Gisli Gudjonsson, Institute of Psychiatry, British Journal of Psychiatry, 195, 2009
