Book Description

Designated a Doody's Core Title!



Together for the first time; all your forensic social work best practice needs in one volume!

"...a vitally important addition to this emerging and essential body of knowledge. This compelling publication places between two covers a broad collection of informative, original essays on core issues in forensic social work. This engaging volume offers readers keen insights into forensic practice related to child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, suicide, psychiatric care and mental illness, juvenile justice, adult corrections, addictions, trauma, and restorative justice."
--from the foreword by Frederic G. Reamer, School of Social Work, Rhode Island College

From expert testimony advice to treating HIV-positive incarcerated women, this handbook contains the most current research and tested field practices for child welfare through adulthood in the civil and criminal system.

Encompassing a wide range of treatments, roles, specialized practices, research, and diagnoses, the Handbook of Forensic Mental Health With Victims and Offenders will guide practicing professionals through the forensic social work issues they encounter on a daily basis, such as:

  • Prevention of prisoners' sudden deaths
  • Expert witness testimony in child welfare and women battering
  • Treatment of dually diagnosed adolescents
  • The overrepresentation of African-Americans incarcerated for juvenile delinquency
  • Jail mental health services for adults
  • Drug courts and PTSD in inmates with substance abuse histories
  • Recidivism prevention
  • Basic tasks in post-trauma intervention with victims and offenders
  • Culture and gender considerations in restorative justice

Edited by Dr. Albert R. Roberts and Dr. David W. Springer, with contributions by leaders in the field, this handbook should top the list of must-have publications for all forensic social workers.

From the Publisher

"This book is an excellent resource for both mentees and mentors. Dr. Grossman has provided the tools to empower nurses to be effective mentors and to develop a mentoring culture, so that we can advance our profession and ultimately make a difference in our patients lives. I am very pleased to recommend this outstanding text to all who are interested in the future of the profession of nursing. "
