Written by the foremost authority in the field, this practical book introduces students to the practice of forensic psychology. Wrightsman clearly presents the roles and responsibilities of forensic psychologists and addresses both the opportunities and temptations inherent in the role. Through this lens, Wrightsman explores the ethical responsibilities of the field such as promising clients too much, the possibility of becoming advocates rather than objective scientists, and the pitfalls associated with substituting one's values for data. Wrightsman's broad view of forensics shows readers the variety of ways that psychologists aid the legal system such as serving as expert witnesses, criminal profiling, trial consulting, determining child custody decisions, assisting in jury selection, and testifying about battered women syndrome or rape trauma. Wrightsman provides students with an accurate and candid picture of the field, while at the same time, demonstrating the variety and depth of opportunities available.

The book provides a focus for a Psychology of Adulthood course that encourages students to look at the evolving nature of their own lives. Particular attention is given to developing an extensive set of references (over 700 in this volume) as an aid to scholars. Adult Personality Development will attract a wide readership among students and professionals of Psychology, Developmental and Clinical Psychology, Aging, Family Studies, Social Psychology, Gender Studies and Nursing.
