This unique book offers valuable insights into the often-hidden world of forensic psychological assessment and intervention. It follows on from Case Studies in Forensic Psychology (2019) and presents a range of detailed clinical case studies of adults and young people across secure and community settings.

The case studies represent individuals with several different forms of offending histories, such as sexual and violent offending, and various clinical diagnoses including autism and acquired brain injury. Each chapter details the individual’s personal background, offending, any relevant psychiatric or psychological diagnoses, and treatments. The chapters end with an intensive discussion on the outcomes for that case, and its wider implications. This book allows the readers to understand the on-ground clinical practice and day-to-day role of a forensic psychologist by demonstrating the work undertaken behind the empirical research and highlighting the complexities to which psychologists need to apply their expertise. It also brings together treatment models and forensic research to establish how theory translates into practice and consider whether it is effective at an individual level.

Further Case Studies in Forensic Psychology is key reading for psychologists, clinicians and practitioners at any stage of their career in this rapidly expanding field. It will also be useful for students of forensic psychology and those interested in the real-life work of psychologists in forensic practice.

Reviews and Endorsements

This book provides a welcome focus upon individual work and learning from the expertise of practitioner psychologists. As academics, and policy makers, we have much to learn from expert practitioners, who are not beholden to the biases of the managerialism of the treatment industry. Real world issues such as working within covid based restrictions are also covered highlighting both challenges and some of the new learning from our practice informing how we may improve services. Very well worth a read for anyone interested in the real world of forensic practice. - Graham Towl, Professor of Forensic Psychology, Durham University and formerly Chief Psychologist, Ministry of Justice, UK.

This book could not be more welcome. In an era when resources are scant and opportunities to discuss cases with others are few, this collection of case studies fills the void. Not only does it focus on best practices generally, it provides wisdom and expertise on how to adapt services to build clients’ ability to respond to treatment. The topics themselves will be of interest to all at the front lines of forensic treatment. The innovative ideas on individualized treatment for sexual offending, fire setting, and domestic violence will be helpful to all readers. - David S. Prescott, Director, Continuing Education Center, Safer Society Foundation, US.
