Reviews

'Those who aspire to excellence in forensic and correctional report-writing will find that the various chapters in The Forensic Psychologists' Report Writing Guide offer superb guidance. It will be supremely helpful to psychologists who write such reports, attorneys who use them in litigation, judges who rely on them to inform their decisions, and clinical administrators who seek high quality in their reports.' - Kirk Heilbrun, Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA

'This volume is an excellent resource for students developing their report writing skills, and an essential desk reference for practitioners. An international team of leading academics and practitioners take an evidence-based approach supported by concrete real world examples and advice on the diverse range of reports that forensic psychologists are asked to write.' - Caoilte O Ciardha, University of Kent, Canterbury, UK

"Overall, I thoroughly recommend this book to trainee and qualified practitioners. The editors have done an excellent job of collating accessible and practical expertise from the current field. New assessors will find it a useful primer and existing assessors will find chapters on neglected areas stimulating for new reflection. I recommend using it alongside a writing style guide and maintaining a critical stance, remembering that we can still improve the accessibility, language and cultural sensitivity of our reports." - Sophie Ellis, Trainee Forensic Psychologist, Institute of Criminology: Cambridge University, Forensic Update (British Psychological Society)
