Forensic Psychology provides students with an in–depth and insightful introduction to the clinical practice of forensic psychology, the assessment and treatment of individuals who interact with the legal system. Focuses on the clinical practice of forensic psychology Integrates research, cases, and theory that provides students with a well–balanced picture of forensic psychology Incorporates two main themes, scope of practice and therapeutic jurisprudence, that focus on empirically supported clinical practice and expose students to case law and statutory law necessary in the practice of forensic psychology Utilizes real world examples and cases such as the impact of intelligence testing in the landmark Atkins vs. Virginia case that help students understand the practical role of forensic psychology Encourages an understanding of the law as a living and breathing entity, examining its ability to be therapeutic or anti–therapeutic for the people most directly affected by it Examines not only the criminal aspects of psychology and law but also civil aspects such as civil competence issues, sexual harassment claims, child custody evaluations, and personal injury cases which are often part of forensic practice Covers unique challenges that forensic psychologists often face clinically, legally, and ethically Instructor′s Resources available at www.blackwellpublishing.com/huss.

Review

"Matt Huss has captured the excitement and fascination felt by many about forensic psychology. Whether you are taking your first course or teaching your umpteenth, this vivid, readable, accurate book is not to be missed." Kirk Heilbrun, Drexel University "Matthew Huss has done a big favor to everyone who teaches (or takes!) undergraduate courses in forensic psychology. This text provides an excellent overview of the theoretical, legal, and practical issues in the major areas of contemporary clinical–forensic psychology. It’s obvious from the writing style – which is clear, simple, and engaging – that Huss is a skilled and experienced teacher. It’s also obvious from the content that his understanding of clinical–forensic psychology is both broad and deep. Simply the best introductory textbook of clinical–forensic psychology on the market!" Steven D. Hart, Simon Fraser University “Matthew Huss has written an accessible, insightful, and utterly engaging introduction to the evidence–based practice of psychology in legal contexts. His ripped–from–the–headlines illustrations of forensic psychologists at work will generate and sustain enormous student interest.” John Monahan, University of Virginia School of Law "Professor Huss has written a simply superb textbook on forensic psychology. Anyone interested in learning about this exciting field must read it. Huss combines clear and engaging writing with a sophisticated grasp of the complex interplay between the fields of psychology and law. His understanding and communication of the science and practice of forensic psychology will surely benefit any reader." – Kevin Douglas, Simon Fraser University
