The Assessment of Malingered Incompetence to Stand Trial Using the ECST-R

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



Abstract:

Mental health professionals working in forensic settings are often called upon to perform competency to stand trial (CST) evaluations. Although several different measures have been used in the past to assess CST, very few have been designed to assess feigned incompetency. This study focuses on utility of the Evaluation of Competency to Stand Trial – Revised (ECST-R) Atypical Presentation (ATP) scales to detect malingered incompetency. Based on preliminary results, there was some agreement between the opinions of the treating psychiatrist and the malingering assessment instrument however, notable discrepancies were also evident. The implications of these findings for the evaluation of competency will also be discussed.
