This book draws upon the author’s first-hand clinical experience as an Expert Witness in child and family legal proceedings to explore the success of psychotherapy assessments and interventions. Focusing on families who are seeking to be re-united after the removal of their children into foster care, Mike Davies discusses critical aspects of therapy which can help to identify and engage those who will benefit from additional support. Chapters combine heuristic, case studies, and narrative research methodologies, considering parents’ stories, self-identity issues and assessment criteria, to uncover an emerging framework that illuminates an innovative therapeutic approach. Divided into three parts, the book develops a comprehensive overview of and thorough investigation into therapeutic assessment during childcare legal proceedings, including explorations into crucial issues such as how and why some families are granted therapeutic intervention, as well as the level of understanding and expertise that professionals and local services can provide in these contexts. Therapeutic Assessment and Intervention in Childcare Legal Proceedings will be of key reading for researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the fields of child and adolescent mental health, law, social work and psychotherapy. The book will also be of interest to social workers, expert psychologists, psychotherapists, family therapists, psychiatrists, and those specialising in public law.

When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth. . . And law enforcement is ready to take them down! Since Night of the Living Dead, zombies have been a frightening fixture on the pop culture landscape, lumbering after hapless humans, slurping up brains and veins and whatever warm, fleshy matter they can clench in their rotting limbs. But what if they were real? What would happen if, tomorrow, corpses across the nation began springing up out of their graves and terrorizing the living? Employing hard science and solid police work--not to mention jaw-dropping (literally!) humor--Zombie CSU is the only guide you need to make it through alive--not undead. At last you can: • Investigate zombie crime scenes, collecting and analyzing evidence of zombie attacks, and create a "murder book." • Examine the psychology of the zombie and develop a perp profile. • Observe medical science pros as they probe felled zombies for forensic clues. • Devise a zombie apocalypse survival scorecard and more! Complete with lists of must-see zombie flicks from around the globe and tons of tips for kicking undead butt, Zombie CSU features hundreds of interviews with real zombie experts, forensics experts, detectives, filmmakers, and more. Special guest stars: Tony Todd, Brian Keene, Patricia Tallman, David Wellington, James Gunn, Robert Kirkman, Dr. Wade Davis, Robert Sacchetto, Zombie Squad, Ramsey Campbell, Kim Paffenroth, Jamie Russell, Michael "CJ" Kelly, Bruce "Andy" Bohne, and dozens more! "Fascinating! An indispensable tool for anyone contemplating tackling a festering corpse onslaught." -- Fearzone.com "Candid, eye-opening, cutting-edge, startling . . . the existence of zombies may not be so far-fetched after all." --Rue Morgue

"Two features I like very much about this book is the integration of gender throughout and the frequent references to other societies and cultures." Becky Glass, State University of New York, Geneseo "A specific strength of Sociology of Families compared to others is that it does cover the really interesting subjects of family privacy, family rights and obligations, and family definitions. This is a great contribution." Laura Sanchez, Tulane University "I think there is a genuine need for a text like this and everyone I know who teaches a basic undergraduate family class says that they need a text like this. It's organized around current issues and changes in the family; it's 'reader friendly', grabbing students' interests; it makes connections between a sociological study of the family and the students' experiences; and it emphasizes 'diversity' - race, class, gender, and sexual orientation." Judith Barker, Ithaca College "Never before have I seen a Family text that has offered such a unique and well-rounded view of the complexities of the family." Kristin Bates, California State University, San Marcos "I like Newman's consistent attempt to connect personal troubles with social issues, a wonderful way to make social science come alive for undergraduates." Dana Vannoy, University of Cincinnati

Understanding Parricide is the most comprehensive book available about juvenile and adult sons and daughters who kill their parents. Dr. Heide moves far behind the statistical correlates of parricide by synthesizing the professional literature on parricide in general, matricide, patricide, double parricides, and familicides. As a clinician, she explains the reasons behind the killings. Understanding Parricide includes in-depth discussion of issues related to prosecuting and defending parricide offenders. The book is enriched with its focus on clinical assessment, case studies, and follow-up of parricide offenders, as well as treatment, risk assessment, and prevention.
