By Marc J. Ackerman and Andrew W. Kane

This practical book pulls all the latest research together into the definitive guide to understanding the role of psychological evaluations in divorce and custody actions. It explains all the leading testing instruments, what conclusions may be drawn from them, and how to challenge or support those conclusions. It also offers effective examination and cross-examination strategies.

The authors, licensed psychologists who have been involved in hundreds of custody cases, identify the most important psychological evaluation research and distill the information into clear terms lawyers can readily apply.

You’ll also get detailed coverage of:
• Sexual abuse issues, including bona fide or fabricated allegations, psychological effects of sexual abuse, and profiles of abuser and abused.
• Testing, including personality tests (including MMPI-2, and the new MMPI-2-RF, Rorschach, Millon, TAT); intelligence tests (Wechsler scales, Kaufman scales, Stanford Binet); custody tests (ASPECT, PCRI, PASS, BPS); and many more.
• Ethics issues, including confidentiality, privilege, sharing raw data, test integrity, and the duty to warn or protect.
• How divorce affects families, including custody, placement, age and gender differences, grandparents, sexual preference, and psychological problems.
