In association with the Taiwan Alliance to End the Death Penalty, the DPP today launched a new Handbook of Forensic Psychiatric Practice for Capital Cases in Taiwan.
This Handbook, adapted from our Handbook of Forensic Psychiatric Practice in Capital Cases, is designed specifically to assist mental health professionals and lawyers engaged in capital trials, sentencing hearings, appeals and mercy hearings in Taiwan. It is intended to be a practical and informative guide for mental health professionals and all those involved in the criminal justice process in Taiwan.
