Most professional forensic resources address the assessment of adults yet neglect the necessary differences that arise when working with minors. Forensic Mental Health Assessment of Children and Adolescents presents the reader with essential knowledge and practical suggestions regarding the forensic assessment of minors involved in a variety of legal applications. Methods of evaluation are described by leading experts regarding topics frequently encountered and of great importance to the courts, including physical and sexual abuse, domestic violence, child custody in divorce proceedings, risk assessment for violence, potential for rehabilitation in juvenile court cases, special education, and childhood development and trauma as mitigating circumstances in death penalty cases.
