520    "Geropsychology is a rapidly growing specialty within 
       psychology, with many psychologists assessing and treating
       older adults in a variety of settings. This book describes
       aspects of geropsychology in general terms with proposed 
       application to forensic geropsychology. It presents 
       contemporary theory, research, and practice at the 
       intersection of forensic psychology and geropsychology. 
       The book is organized around practice-related issues and 
       forensic contexts. It first describes the relevant ethical
       issues and common ethical challenges in forensic 
       psychology and offers an approach to maintaining high 
       standards of ethical practice. Then it covers the 
       assessment of response, symptom, and performance validity 
       in forensic geropsychology. The book also covers civil 
       litigation from the perspective of disorders that are 
       commonly the focus of litigation; specifically, traumatic 
       brain injury and its possible causal link to dementia, 
       posttraumatic stress disorder, and pain syndromes. It 
       addresses the assessment and restoration of competency to 
       stand trial and to be executed. The book then presents 
       psychology's involvement in the "not guilty by reason of 
       insanity" defense with older adults and reviews the 
       provision of psychological treatment to incarcerated older
       adults. It covers administrative contexts, including the 
       assessment of testamentary capacity in older adults, 
       issues surrounding older adult veterans who are pursuing 
       benefits from Veterans Affairs because of psychological 
       problems, and psychology's role in guardianship and 
       conservatorship determinations. Finally, it addresses the 
       mitigating effects of age-related issues on criminal 
       sentencing and housing placements, which are relevant in 
       both criminal and administrative contexts."--Preface.
