Matthew T. Huss’ Forensic Psychology, 2nd Edition provides students with an in-depth and insightful introduction to the clinical practice of forensic psychology. Incorporating two main themes, scope of practice and therapeutic jurisprudence, the text focuses on empirically supported clinical practice and exposes students to case and statutory laws necessary in the practice of forensic psychology.

Several changes have been made to this second edition. The research has been updated throughout and the discussion now frequently reflects changes in the developing research. The Focus on Research boxes highlight particular research studies in more depth with at least one per chapter. Also, more information has been added about treatment-related aspects throughout the textbook to balance out some of the assessment focus.

The text utilizes real world examples that help students understand the practical applications of forensic psychology. It encourages an understanding of the law as a living and breathing entity, examining its ability to be therapeutic or anti-therapeutic to the people it impacts. Accessible and user-friendly, this text provides students with a thorough introduction to the field.
