Some of the most important criminal investigations that can be done is the forensic mental health examination. It is here where we attempt to find motivation, triggers and theoretical framework to both understand past crimes and victimization as well as those in the future.
This book also examines the "examiner"and how our own schema and worldview can influence the outcome of our investigation. Written for students as well as working professionals, this text will help to enhance mental health assessment for both investigation and intake purposes.
