Perspectives in Law & Psychology #7: Evaluating Competencies: Forensic Assessments and Instruments Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book offers a conceptual model for understanding the nature of legal competencies. The model is interpreted to assist mental health professionals in designing and performing assessments for legal competencies defined in criminal and civil law, and to guide research that will improve the practice of evaluations for legal competencies. A special feature is the book's evaluative review of specialized forensic assessment instruments for each of several legal competencies. Three-fourths of the 37 instruments reviewed in this second edition are new.

Book News Annotation:

Grisso (U. of Massachusetts Medical Center) and his collaborators review "forensic assessment instruments" for providing an empirical foundation for clinicians' evaluations in areas of legal competency, including competency to stand trial, waivers of rights, not guilty by reason of insanity, parenting capacity, guardianship and conservatorship, and competence to consent to medical treatment. Thirty-seven instruments are covered, only nine of which are retained from the first edition of the text, published in 1986. Chapters also review the progress for the underlying theory first presented in earlier edition.
