 About the Book 

Of all the different forms of forensic mental health evaluations, the most frequently requested are competency to stand trial evaluations. Dr. Grisso, a preeminent forensic researcher and teacher, has put together a field-tested manual of immense value. It is basic and straightforward, yet sufficiently complete to meet current legal requirements, professional standards, and the realistic demands of a forensic practice. Included are reviews of competency assessment instruments- discussions of ethical issues in competency evaluations of criminal defendants- case examples- and appendices detailing major legal cases, specialized evaluation tools, and reference citations.
