The Pediatric Forensic Neuropsychology was published in January 2012 and is a wide-ranging resource on the practice and process of civil forensic neuropsychological assessment of children and adolescents. It was written by Copeman Healthcare’s Director of Brain and Psychological Health, Dr. Elisabeth Sherman in collaboration with Dr. Brian Brooks.

The Pediatric Forensic Neuropsychology  provides a comprehensive source for neuropsychologists who engage in forensic work and for professionals who assess children and adolescents. The book covers the role of pediatric neuropsychology in the courtroom, ethical issues, and practical issues in private forensic practice. These topics will also be of interests to professionals including attorneys, and medical professionals involved in forensic evaluations, such as clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and psychiatrists.

Neuropsychologists who help children and adolescents are tasked with ensuring their vulnerable patients are treated with sensitivity, even in a forensic setting. It is important for these professionals to be well-trained and to strive for a high level of ethical standards.
