Highlights include:

• New psychometric framework for measuring coercion
• Proposed reforms for post-identification feedback
• Latest research on LGBTQ victims

• Examination of teen dating violence

This book continues the tradition of providing thorough review of existing and emerging topics of interest to researchers and academics in legal psychology, criminal justice, and sociology, as well as attorneys, trial consultants and policy makers.
