520    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.
