Description - Principles and Practice of Child and Adolescent Forensic Psychiatry by Diane H. Schetky
It was not until the mid-20th century that childhood achieved recognition as a developmental stage separate from adulthood. Despite the legal protections for children that have been established since then, we are still relatively early in the process of discovering childhood's legal and forensic contexts. This practical textbook is a step-by-step guide that walks clinicians through the often-confusing world of depositions and courtroom testimony. The editors - pioneers in child and adolescent forensic psychiatry - have dramatically expanded their earlier textbook, bringing clarity and coherence to these complex and often highly charged clinical and legal issues by emphasizing evidence-based research within an easy-to-read outline format.
