Editorial Reviews


'This is a comprehensive, cutting-edge book ideal for anyone interested in Forensic Psychology. The detailed attention to issues regarding a range of forensic populations and treatment programmes is excellent. The consideration of contemporary issues and the insightful, honest evaluation of the potential challenges of working in secure settings are particularly refreshing. It is an easily-accessible resource that I am sure will be a valued go-to reference for academics, practioners and students. We have needed a volume like this for a long time.' - Dr. Jane L Wood, HCPC Registered Forensic Psychologist, Reader, School of Psychology, University of Kent, UK

'This outstanding book offers the latest evidence in all areas of forensic psychology practice. The chapters, written by leading authors in the field, aptly capture the complexities of the work, and provide clear guidance for practitioners working in the field. The collection is impressive in its breadth and depth, and will be an essential read for students of forensic psychology and practitioners working in secure settings.' - Joel Harvey, King’s College London, UK
