Hickling, Psy.D., Center for Stress and Anxiety Disorders, SUNY-Albany Capital Psychological Associates, Albany, NY "Dr. William J.

This outstanding work should be required reading for any practitioner involved in forensically oriented work, or for those who treat posttraumatic stress disorder and similar conditions. In an increasingly litigious world, practitioners need more and better resources to inform, guide, and justify their activities; Psychological Injuries: Forensic Assessment, Treatment, and Law will probide clear, concise, and thorough direction to anyone involved in this kind of work. Kudos to Koch and colleagues for providing both a timely and unique resource, which will no doubt become the new standard for excellence by integrating clinical research, legal-medical issues, and practice."----Johan Rosqvist, Psy.D., Solutions for Anxiety Clinic, Pacific University "Essential reading for any lawyer handling cases involving psychological injuries. This book not only outlines the development and explains the research underpining the medical issues, but tracks the legal developments and challenges facing counsel. I came away better armed to advise clients, prepare expert witnesses and present my case."----Stephen McPhee, Trial Lawyer, British Columbia, Canada "A landmark volume that provides a thoughtful and lucid discussion of issues related to psychological injury. Topics covered range from historical origins to the political and scientific issues that shape our current views of psychological disorders in a medical-legal context.

The comprehensive coverage of the research literature alone is worth the price of the volume. This well written and important book should be required reading for all legal and health care professionals."----Lynn Alden, Associate Dean & Professor, Department of Psychology, University of British Colombia, Vancouver, British Colombia, Canada "[the authors] present an in-depth review of the interaction effects of social economic factors, gender, culture, and the type of stressors--nowhere so carefully crafted and thoroughly researched as in this book...Whether you are a clinician who assesses and treats traumatized clients or a forensic psychologist who evaluates clients for legal proceedings, this book will improve your knowledge and understanding...My clinical awareness and practice has been sharpened by its reading."--PsycCRITIQUES "This is a great book that fills a much needed void in the psychological and legal literature.
