Forensic Psychiatry : Clinical Challenges Hardback
Forensic psychiatrists must be versed in knowledge of clinical syndromes, and they have to know the legal implications of those syndromes when mental illness is deemed to have been a factor in transgressions of the Law. Forensic psychiatrists are also confronted with a number of specific clinical presentations which psychiatrists in general see only rarely in their practices. These constitute a set of special topics clearly defined by their clinical characteristics and legal implications.
These special areas form an integral part of the specialty and the skills that they bring to their clinical and legal management. In one volume, this groundbreaking book offers a review these special topics in depth, their meaning, and their clinical and legal management.
