Meeting a growing need for practitioners, this unique volume brings together leading experts to present the legal and clinical foundations of neuropsychology practice in criminal forensic cases. Authoritative yet accessible, the book reviews relevant case law and constitutional principles and provides clear-cut guidance for conducting assessments that address specific legal standards and questions, such as competency to confess, competency to proceed, criminal responsibility, and sentencing concerns. With coverage of both adult and juvenile contexts, chapters describe how to work effectively in correctional settings; gather information from multiple sources; detect deception; generate accurate, legally admissible findings; and communicate them successfully in the courtroom.
