A Meta-Analytic Review of Competency to Stand Trial Research: Preliminary Findings

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Hundreds of articles and numerous books have been written on competency to stand trial; however, only one meta-analysis has been conducted, nearly 20 years ago (i.e., Nicholson & Kugler, 1991). Since then over 100 empirical research studies and eight competency assessment instruments have been published. The current research describes the results of a recently completed meta-analysis of competency to stand trial research, focusing on the extant research comparing competent and incompetent defendants on a number of demographic, psychiatric, and criminological variables. Implications for policy, practice, research, and the criminal justice system will be discussed.
