Areas of professional practice, such as law, psychiatry, and the behavioural and social sciences, overlap at numerous points in terms of underlying concepts and basic research. They also intersect at an everyday level in their work with individuals whose multiple problems simultaneously require attention from legal, mental health, and social services professionals.

Now, more than ever, there is a need for the people working in these different fields to grasp the nature and implications of each other's perspectives and adopt a better-informed approach to inter-disciplinary work. This work explicitly sets out to close these gaps and to address the questions that arise at the meeting-points and cross-roads of different backgrounds and spheres of activity. Contributors to the book include both internationally known academics and researchers and experienced practitioners.
