Using a Semi-Structured Interview to Assess Juvenile Competence-Related Capacities

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



Abstract:

Juvenile competence to stand trial is a difficult concept to describe because juvenile courts are oriented towards both rehabilitation and community safety goals. The Washington state juvenile forensic clinic (“CSTC”) conducted 280 evaluations of referred juveniles over a period of three years for capacity to understand the proceedings and capacity to assist defense counsel. The sample was almost evenly split between those with and without the requisite capacities. Results suggested that the strongest predictors of both capacities were the tasks that required more sophisticated cognitive abilities, such as decision-making and recognizing potential gains and losses.
