This extremely versatile handbook, written for students and practitioners, taps current treatment and assessment research to provide up-to-date coverage of emotional and behavioral disorders, major DSM-IV-TR diagnostic categories, MMPI-2 correlates and other test-response patterns, and treatment options. Diagnostic concepts and observations are linked with specific assessment and test data for diagnostic categories; this is then integrated with recommended intervention procedures. In a single volume, the authors have synthesized an abundance of information and presented it in a manageable and accessible manner. Their extensive experience in clinical and forensic psychology-teaching, conducting research, interacting with clients, working in the criminal justice system- highly qualifies them to know and present the kind of practical information students and practitioners need. Additional outstanding features . . . * emphasizes multimodal assessment and treatment * includes extensive discussions of clinical challenges, such as suicidal clients, the criminal personality, deception, and malingering * offers "bibliotherapy" reading assignments and appropriate relaxation techniques for various types of clients * provides coverage of legal issues-competency, criminal responsibility, and civil commitment * presents useful tips on case preparation and professional practice in the office and the courtroom
