Employing riveting case studies drawn from the more than 1,800 custody evaluations he has performed, Dr. Marc Ackerman provides authoritative guidelines for:

Conducting interviews, observing behavior, and collecting collateral information Psychological testing and administering ASPECT and other custody instruments Evaluating parental behavior Reporting evaluation results Testifying in court

Clinician's Guide to Child Custody Evaluations, Second Edition is must reading for every mental health professional who is-or would like to be-involved in child custody evaluations.
