The American Psychiatric Association Publishing Textbook of Forensic Psychiatry
The new, third edition of The American Psychiatric Association Publishing Textbook of Forensic Psychiatry, now under the insightful leadership of Drs. Gold and Frierson, has undergone a major expansion and a comprehensive revision that reestablish it as the preeminent text in the field. No fewer than 10 new chapters have been added, and the entire book has been restructured to reflect the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurologys Content Outline for the Certification Examination in Forensic Psychiatry, thus facilitating its use in preparing for certification or maintaining certification. In addition, the book constitutes a useful reference for general psychiatrists and psychologists interested in the legal issues that may impact clinical practice. The emphasis on Landmark Cases as fascinating as they are illuminating of critically important topics in case law is highlighted in this edition, fostering understanding of the evolution of legal principles on the general practice of psychiatry and in the subspecialty of forensic psychiatry. Written by some of the foremost experts in the field and structured for optimal utility, The American Psychiatric Association Publishing Textbook of Forensic Psychiatry will play an indispensable role both in educating forensic psychiatry fellows and general psychiatry residents and in keeping experienced clinicians up to date.
