Recent surveys demonstrate a high and possibly increasing prevalence of mental disorders in prisoners. They have an increased risk of suffering from a mental disorder that transcends countries and diagnoses. Ethical dilemmas in prison psychiatry arise from resource allocation and include issues of patient choice and autonomy in an inherently coercive environment. Ethical conflicts may arise from the dual role of forensic psychiatrists giving raise to tensions between patient care/protection of the public.This book describes models and ethical issues of psychiatric healthcare in prison in several countries. Relevant issues are: the professional medical role of a psychiatrist and/or psychotherapist working in prison, the involvement of psychiatrists in disciplinary or coercive measures; consent to treatment, the use of coercion in forcing a prisoner to undergo treatment, hunger strike, confidentiality. The book ends with consensus guidelines concerning good practice in Prison Psychiatry.

Tale opera nasce con l’intento di analizzare il criminal profiling del serial killer. L’obiettivo è infatti quello di descrivere chi è il serial killer e in che modo si può tracciarne un profilo criminale che vada non solo a descrivere la storia familiare, ma anche il modus operandi, il movente e la presenza di eventuali disturbi che possano giustificare la condotta criminale seriale. Il primo capitolo va appunto a delineare chi è il serial killer, analizzando le differenti classificazioni che ne possono essere tracciate, l’incidenza che può avere la storia di vita familiare e i disturbi psichiatrici che più frequentemente può manifestare l’assassino seriale. Si parte con una definizione del concetto di criminal profiling. Una volta inquadrato il criminal profiling dal punto di vista concettuale è necessario approfondire i costrutti teorici di riferimento. Si tratterà il modello di classificazione dell’FBI e la Psicologia investigativa di Canter andando a distinguere la criminologia americana dalla realtà italiana dell’UACV. Infine il terzo e il quarto capitolo analizzano i casi di due assassini seriali, uno italiano, l’altro americano: stiamo parlando di Donato Bilancia e Ted Bundy, due individui che seppure in nazioni diverse e in periodi storici diversi hanno sconvolto l’opinione pubblica sia per l’elevato numero delle vittime, sia per il modus operandi.

Questo testo nasce dall’esigenza di fornire chiarimenti e competenze specialistiche su un fenomeno quanto mai attuale in ambito processuale, quale la definizione del profilo criminale e psicopatologico degli autori di crimini violenti. Il volume gode di una struttura multidisciplinare nell’approccio ai fenomeni delittuosi trattati, tra i quali i più rilevanti e conosciuti sono: lo stalking, il femminicidio, i serial killer, i mass murder, gli omicidi in famiglia ed i reati ad opera e contro i minori. I temi sono analizzati partendo da nozioni giuridiche e nel dettaglio approfonditi dal punto di vista psicologico, psichiatrico, medico-legale e psichiatrico-forense. L’opera si suddivide in due parti: 1. la prima, Profili sostanziali e processuali, offre un taglio giuridico e di approfondimento su aspetti giudiziari che vedono imputato il reo nel processo penale; 2. la seconda, Profili psicopatologici e criminali dei soggetti autori di reato, analizza gli argomenti partendo dal generale, attraverso la trattazione degli aspetti psicologici e delle patologie psichiatriche, per poi approfondire l’analisi delle singole tipologie di azioni criminali, passando in rassegna i più comuni e conosciuti crimini violenti contro la persona. Una parte significativa del volume è dedicata all’analisi dei crimini sessuali, esaminati nella loro peculiare specificità, con l’esame degli aspetti psicopatologici della sessualità e lo studio della pedofilia, operando una precisa distinzione tra quella maschile e la meno conosciuta pedofilia femminile. Un accento particolare è posto sui minori, sia in veste di autori che di vittima di reato, soprattutto in ambito familiare, spesso per mano femminile.

From the second half of the the years '90s, we are assisting to a progressive internationalisation of 'Terror(ism)', through the diffusion on a large scale fo the New Technology as an essential component of our lives. National and International Terriorism, in fact, has found a great ally in technological instruments and, in particular, Internet, since they guarantee a high level of anonymity and they represent new channels of communication, essential to keep internal contacts among the members of a single terrorist organisation and they are fundamental instruments also to develop an international network of connections both for idelogogical support, as well as for massive recruitment campaign. New technology has also developed new and more aggressive "technological weapons" (mass-destruction armaments and CBRNE weapons), used by the criminal terrorist organisations for creating new and alternative forms of blackmailing the International Institutions and the 'Civil Society'. These armaments are also considered a new source of raising funds for financing terrorism, because of the illegal trade of toxic and nuclear material. The time is mature for clarifying the concrete subversive capability of the several Terrorist movements that at a National-Intentional level represents a menace to the 'global security', in the light also of the fact that New Technology has progressively contributed in creating a world without spatial and temporal frontiers, through Internet and the technological instruments. This research also has the aim to develop a new program of prevention/repression strategy against Terrorism in any form and idelogical identity, to shorten the distance between the Terrorist phenomenon and the capability of the International Society to prevent and control this 'pathological' problem, using the same technological instruments exploited by Terrorism: from an 'asymmetric war' to a more and more 'symmetrical war', where the battle-field is the the Informational Technology.

In this indispensable book, master diagnostician James Morrison presents the spectrum of diagnoses in DSM-5 in an accessible, engaging, clinically useful format. Demystifying DSM-5 criteria without sacrificing accuracy, the book includes ICD-10-CM codes for each disorder. More than 130 detailed case vignettes illustrate typical patient presentations; down-to-earth discussions of each case demonstrate how to arrive at the diagnosis and rule out other likely possibilities. Providing a wealth of diagnostic pointers, Morrison writes with the wisdom and wit that made his guide to the prior DSM a valued resource for hundreds of thousands of clinicians and students. His website (www.guilford.com/jm) offers additional discussion and resources related to psychiatric diagnosis and DSM-5.

To speak of "the sexual life of the child" seems at first sight to involve a contradiction in terms. It is generally assumed that the sexual life first awakens at the on-coming of puberty (the attainment of sexual maturity of manhood or womanhood); the on-coming of puberty is regarded as the termination of childhood; in fact the term child is usually defined as the human being from the time of birth to the on-coming of puberty. But this contradiction is apparent merely, and depends on the assumption that the on-coming of puberty is indicated by certain outward signs (more especially the first menstruation and the first seminal emission), insufficient attention being paid to the long period of development which usually precedes these occurrences. And yet, during this period of preliminary development, the occurrence of certain manifestations of the sexual life is plainly demonstrable. The period of childhood is subdivided into several sub-epochs, but the delimitation and nomenclature of these varies so much with different investigators, that to avoid misunderstanding I must first define the subdivisions which I myself propose to employ. If we regard the beginning of the fifteenth year as the termination of childhood, we may divide childhood into two equal periods, the first extending from birth to the completion of the seventh year, the second from the beginning of the eighth to the end of the fourteenth year. I shall in this work designate these two periods as the first and the second period of childhood respectively. In the first period of childhood, the first year of life may be further distinguished as the period of infancy.1 The first and second periods of childhood comprise childhood in the narrower sense of the term. The years that immediately follow the beginning of the fifteenth year I shall denote as the period of youth. Inasmuch as the symptoms of this latter come to differ from those of childhood proper, not abruptly, but gradually, the first years, at least, of youth will often come under our consideration, and I shall speak of this period of life as the third period of childhood. Although childhood in the narrower sense comprises the first and second periods only, childhood in the wider sense includes also the third period. It is hardly possible that any misunderstanding can arise if the reader will bear in mind that whenever I speak of childhood without qualification, I allude only to the period of life before the beginning of the fifteenth year. For all these periods of childhood, first, second, and third, I shall for practical convenience when speaking of males use the word boy, and when speaking of females, the word girl. The use of this terminology must not be regarded as implying that the distinctions indicated correspond in any way to fixed natural lines of demarcation; on the contrary, individual variations are numerous and manifold. Not only does the rate of development differ in different races (in the Caucasian race, more especially, the age of puberty comes comparatively late, so that among the members of this race childhood is prolonged); but further, within the limits of one and the same race, notable differences occur. More than all have we to take into account the differences between the sexes, childhood terminating earlier in the female sex than in the male—among our own people [the Germans] this difference is commonly estimated at as much as two years. In addition, in this respect, there are marked differences between different classes of the population, a matter to which we shall return in Chapter VI.

Complex and controversial, hackers possess a wily, fascinating talent, the machinations of which are shrouded in secrecy. Providing in-depth exploration into this largely uncharted territory, Profiling Hackers: The Science of Criminal Profiling as Applied to the World of Hacking offers insight into the hacking realm by telling attention-grabbing tales about bizarre characters that practice hacking as an art. Focusing on the relationship between technology and crime and drawn from the research conducted by the Hackers Profiling Project (HPP), this volume applies the behavioral science of criminal profiling to the world of internet predators. The authors reveal hidden aspects of the cyber-crime underground, answering questions such as: Who is a real hacker? What life does a hacker lead when not on-line? Is it possible to determine a hacker’s profile on the basis of his behavior or types of intrusion? What is the motive behind phishing, pharming, viruses, and worms? After gaining notoriety for breaking into many high-profile computer systems, the Italian hacker Raoul Chiesa turned to ethical hacking in 1995. Today he uses his skills and abilities to find ways to protect networks and computer systems. Stefania Ducci is a member of the Counter Human Trafficking and Emerging Crimes Unit at the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI). Silvio Ciappi is a criminologist who lectures at the University of Pisa and studies criminal profiling. These three experts with vastly different backgrounds explore the clandestine network of cyber-criminals, providing an unparalleled glimpse into the secret lives of these malevolent individuals.

This edited volume is written by and for mental health professionals who work directly with alienated children and their parents. The chapters are written by leaders in the field, all of whom know how vexing parental alienation can be for mental health professionals. No matter how the professional intersects with families affected by alienation, be it through individual treatment, reunification therapy, a school setting, or support groups, he or she needs to consider how to make proper assessments, how to guard against bias, and when and how to involve the court system, among other challenges. The cutting edge clinical interventions presented in this book will help professionals answer these questions and help them to help their clients. The authors present a range of clinical options such as parent education, psycho-educational programs for children, and reunification programs for children and parents that make this volume a useful reference and practical guide.
