The Clinician's Guide to Geriatric Forensic Evaluations provides practical hands-on guidance to clinicians who are providing forensic evaluations to geriatric patients. Each chapter opens with a case study and then highlights specific assessment techniques, best practices and common pitfalls to avoid. The topics of elder abuse and financial exploitation, mental and physical capacity, and individual risk factors are all covered in-depth. The key considerations in diagnosing neurocognitive disorders based on DSM-V are discussed, as are legal topics, such as report writing, providing a court testimony, and when to refer to an outside independent expert. In addition, samples of geriatric forensic reports are included.

  • Features dozens of case studies showing strategies in practice
  • Discusses undue influence, competence and financial exploitation
  • Covers ethical issues, report writing and diagnostic differences in the DSM-IV and DSM-V
