Originally published in Spanish in 2017 by Libreria Bosch, Barcelona,  the Atlas of Forensic and Criminal Psychology is a one-of-kind book made  available in English for the first time. This unique work is highly  illustrated with full-color images, providing a medico-legal examination  of forensic pathology as it relates to cases of forensic psychological  interest.

The book begins with a historical perspective and  includes images of patients to familiarize the reader with symptoms, the  hazard-risk criteria, lethality, and suicidal rescue--research that Dr.  Tiffon has addressed in his previous publications. Chapters present  photographic records of cases to deepen forensic, psychologist, and  medico-legal professionals' insight into thoughts, behaviors, and  mechanisms of self- and hetero-aggressiveness. Such cases illustrate the  outcomes of various disorders manifested in individuals and victims; as  such, they provide an understanding of the psychological-legal  conclusions reached in such cases in order to adapt the legal and  preventative measures for specific situations.

Coverage includes  affective, schizophrenic, and personality disorders as contributing  elements in diagnostic judgments, noting the great difficulty such  examples present to experts performing psychopathological evaluations  after criminal, and often violent, events have occurred. Various  psychopathological disorders are addressed as well as the technical  treatment that should occur in each case from a psychological-forensic  perspective.

- Presents a provocative look at  various syndromes familiar to forensic psychologists, as applied to  criminal cases and the pathology of suicide victims and homicide  perpetrators
- Combines the work of world-renowned expert  contributors to examine the criminal, legal, and psychological facets of  various diagnoses and case examples
- Offers insight into the psychological state of suicide victims, considering their state of mind as a psychological autopsy

In  his previous books published in Spanish, Manual of Consulting in  Psychology and Clinical, Legal, Legal, Criminal, and Forensic  Psychopathology (2008), Manual of Professional Performance in Clinical,  Criminal, and Forensic Psychopathology (2009), and the 4-volume  Practical Criminological Atlas of Forensic Psychometry (2019-2020),  Tiffon approached forensic psychology and psychopathology from a  theoretical perspective. In the Atlas of Forensic and Criminal  Psychology, his first book translated into English, Tiffon expands on  these prior works, serving to provide a visual reference and guide to  medical pathologists and consulting psychologists in cases of disorders  in which psychopathological mutilation, injury, and self-injury occur.
