Forensic Evaluation of Juveniles - 2nd Edition (2013)
by Tom Grisso, Ph.D.

The second edition of Dr. Grisso’s book entitled Forensic Evaluation of Juveniles was published recently by Professional Resource Press (www.prpress.com).   It provides standards and clinical guidance for forensic mental health professionals to use in various forensic evaluations of young people—such as competence to stand trial, risk of re-offending, and offering proper rehabilitation recommendations.   Reviews have hailed the book as “an occasion for this field to celebrate” and “a must for practitioners in this area.”
