Reviews

"This book aims far higher than a recipe for juvenile disposition and transfer evaluations. It explains why you are doing them, focuses on what factors you need to evaluate, and comprehensively lays out your options for designing your assessment. And if you are looking for research ideas, the possibilities here are endless."-Thomas Grisso, PhD, ABPP (Forensic), emeritus professor, University of Massachusetts Medical School


"This book is the place to go for a comprehensive, intelligent overview of the issues surrounding forensic testimony in complex, serious juvenile cases. It weaves together legal analysis, juvenile justice constructs, developmental psychology, research on outcomes and patterns of offending, and straightforward clinical guidelines-all in an eminently readable format. This is a first-rate piece of serious legal and clinical scholarship that firmly grounds the young practitioner and scholar and provides a valuable context and explication of issues for the more seasoned professional."-Edward P. Mulvey, PhD, professor of psychiatry, director, Law and Psychiatry Program, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine


"Any mental health professional involved in juvenile justice should read this book, not only because transfer of juveniles to adult court is a ubiquitous aspect of juvenile justice, but because recent Supreme Court opinions have also made evaluation of rehabilitative potential crucial for those adults who committed crimes while juveniles. This book describes all the up-to-date tools needed to carry out this incredibly important aspect of the juvenile justice system."-Christopher Slobogin, JD, LLM, Milton Underwood Professor of Law, Vanderbilt University Law School
