Robinson and Kettles have assembled a collection of 20 articles on the subject, conveying the perspectives of 30 contributors from seven countries and offering theoretical views, as well as practical consideration. There is also an extensive section of related references included in the book ...Nurses interested in better understanding this emerging field, as well as mental health nurses desiring some provocative cross-cultural comparisons of practice, will find this book of value. -- Proquest
The book does provide a thorough analysis of the essence of mental health care and and would be an excellent introductory text for students on the secondment to forensic units or anyone working in the field for the first time. -- Therapeutic Communities
Where it differs from other forensic texts that have been published recently, and this is a key strength of the text, is that the chapter authors have approached the issue from a range of professional backgrounds. Neither is the text confined to what is currently happening in the UK, it updates the reader on forensic work in the Netherlands, Australia, Canada, the USA, Norway and Germany. ... I recommend this text, not only as in introductory guide for students, but also for those in forensic services keen to develop their knowledge of multi professional working on a national and international basis. -- The British Journal of Forensic Practice
This book is the first to attempt to capture the essence of forensic nursing practice. The issues it examines include: whether forensic nursing should be a separate specialty, what its content should be; training and education; areas of practice; and practitioners' experiences. International perspectives of forensic nursing are well articulated. The book highlights important research questions and outlines fundamental prerequisites for post-basic training and education. Overall, a valuable source for this much-needed discipline. -- Nursing Times
