    The C.A.S. in Forensic Mental Health (18 credits) is an excellent option for students who: Already have a baccalaureate or graduate degree in a related discipline such as psychology, criminal justice, law, or social work, and want to learn more about Forensic Mental Health without pursuing a master’s degree. In this sense, the present book was written as a companion to Principles of Forensic Mental Health Assessment (Heilbrun, ), which describes the derivation and support for 29 broad principles of FMHA. Those interested in how these principles might be applied to FMHA cases can see how we did this in the introduction to each case.

    The continuing development of forensic psychology and psychiatry, combined with several recent decisions from the United States Supreme Court addressing various aspects of the death penalty, has increased the number of forensic mental health assessments conducted in death penalty cases. Forensic mental health professionals are now conducting assessments at every stage of death penalty. This is the first book devoted to the use of social media and other internet-derived data in forming forensic clinical opinions of behavior. Designed for mental health practitioners, it outlines the challenges and the benefits of incorporating digital information in forensic assessments.
