The Ethical Practice of Forensic Psychology : A Casebook, Paperback / softback Book


Few resources exist for those interested in developing their professional competence vis-a-vis ethics in forensic psychology, with the most recent text being published more than a decade ago.

However, forensic psychology is changing quickly and there is a need for a current guide on ethics within the field.

The Ethical Practice of Forensic Psychology highlights the ethical standards and guidelines set forth by the American Psychological Association's (APA) Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (EPPCC) and the Specialty Guidelines for Forensic Psychology (SGFP).

This Casebook provides readers with a practical review of these ethical standards and professional guidelines in the context of forensic case vignettes with corresponding commentary by leaders inthe field.

Concepts are presented using a best-practices model that encourages and promotes engaging in empirically supported decision-making.

This volume is distinct from all others published in this area, given its inclusion and integration of a review of the ethical standards and guidelines contained in the EPPCC and SGFP,in addition to numerous types of ethical dilemmas encountered in forensic practice, a review of the relevant empirical literature and case law/legal statutes, and commentary by experts in forensic psychology.

This unique Casebook will prove useful for a broad audience including academics in forensic psychology, psychology graduate and post-doctoral students and trainees, practitioners, mental health counselors, social workers, and legal professionals.
