Summary The book not only has full descriptions of principles of evidence, but also offers detailed guidelines on how to conduct a forensic assessment of adults and older adults. Additionally, the authors examine the concepts of competency and guardianship, and provide guidelines for navigating the justice system. The authors provide current, concise, and easy-to-use information in short chapters that assist practitioners with the prevention of crimes and the identification and management of both victims and offenders.
