Detecting Malingering and Deception: Forensic Distortion Analysis, Second Edition


Detecting Malingering and Deception: Forensic Distortion Analysis, Second Edition Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

NOMINATED FOR THE MANFRED S. GUTTMACHER AWARD BY THE AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATIONAlthough advances in clinical/forensic theory and technology continue to elucidate our understanding of deception analysis, the current state of the art is crude in most applications. With new interviewing techniques, psychological tests and instruments, Detecting Malingering and Deception: Forensic Distortion Analysis, Second Edition takes the reader far beyond the basic differentiation between malingering versus defensiveness as the two modes of distortion. What's new in this edition? Virtually every chapter has been updated with new studies and investigations from the past decade. The latest information is provided in such areas as post-traumatic stress disorder, amnesia, competency, criminal responsibility, and risk assessment. Several new chapters address not only the development of deceptive behavior in children, adolescents, and the elderly, but even in nonhumans. This authoritative contribution offers the reader specific steps to conduct a meaningful and contemporary deception analysis. Moreover, acknowledging the numerous methods and professions involved, it suggests a framework for integrating data from multiple sources. Nominated for the Guttmacher Award by the American Psychiatric Association, Detecting Malingering and Deception: Forensic Distortion Analysis is the single most comprehensive and thorough rendering of distortion analysis to date.
