From expert testimony advice to treating HIV positive incarcerated women, this handbook contains the most current research and tested field practices for child welfare through adulthood in the civil and criminal systems. Encompassing a wide range of treatments, roles, specialized practices, research, and diagnoses, the "Handbook of Forensic Mental Health" will guide practicing professionals through the forensic social work issues they encounter on a daily basis, such as: prevention of prisoner sudden deaths; expert witness testimony in child welfare and women battering; treating dually diagnosed adolescents; the overrepresentation of African-Americans for juvenile delinquency; jail mental health services for adults; drug courts and PTSD in inmates with substance abuse histories; recidivism prevention; basic tasks in post-trauma intervention with victims and offenders; and, culture and gender considerations in restorative justice. Edited by renowned psychologist Dr. Albert R. Roberts and social worker Dr. David W. Springer, with contributions by leaders in the field, this handbook should top the list of must-haves for all forensic social workers.
