SHRUNK: Crime and Disorders of the Mind is a collection of powerful stories by international forensic psychologists and psychiatrists who write about the many complex mental health issues they face and the care involved in dealing with them. Unlike any other book within the genre of True Crime, Shrunk forms a unique bridge between mental health and law. Chapters focus on cases where judges and juries call upon the opinions of forensic experts when dealing with the mentally disordered criminally accused. Edited by scholar Dr. Lorene Shyba and psychologist Dr. J. Thomas Dalby, with a foreword by Dr. Lisa Ramshaw, Shrunk is written and edited to appeal to medical and legal professionals; students of medicine, psychology, and law; and the interested general public. Shrunk is the second book in Durvile Publications' 'True Cases' series.
