Principles and Practice of Child and Adolescent Forensic Psychiatry

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

Diane H. Schetky and Elissa P. Benedek are the mothers of child and adolescent forensic psychiatry. This is the partnership that brought us Child Psychiatry and the Law (1980), Emerging Issues in Child Psychiatry and the Law (1985), and Clinical Handbook of Child Psychiatry and the Law (1992). Their newest collaboration, Principles and Practice of Child and Adolescent Forensic Psychiatry, is a comprehensive, well-organized, readable account of all the major issues in this specialized area. This is a textbook for trainees in child and adolescent psychiatry and forensic psychiatry and psychology and a reference book for both mental health and legal professionals.
