Summary

Watch Dr. Helen Farrell's TEDx Talk on Creating Hope for Mental Health

Forensic Psychiatry: Essential Board Review is an invaluable study guide for those doctors preparing for the forensic psychiatry board exam or seeking recertification. The text is a concise and practical aid for mastering forensics, making key principles easy to understand and memorize.

The book is divided into four sections. The first section, Board Examination Tips and Pitfalls, offers you important advice on everything from registering for the examination to effective studying techniques to the power of embracing a positive attitude. The second section, High Yield Notes, provides a broad review of important topics in forensic psychiatry including forensic ethics as well as civil and criminal issues. The third section, Legal Cases, contains a concise review of important mental health legal cases. The last section, Board-Style Questions, includes more than 100 board-style questions along with answers and detailed explanations for self-assessment.

Although the book focuses primarily on forensic psychiatrists, a larger audience can benefit from reading it including psychologists, social workers, criminologists, general psychiatrists, medical students, and attorneys or law students interested in mental health law.
