Improving the Usefulness of Juvenile Forensic Evaluations

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



Abstract:

The usefulness of juvenile forensic evaluations is constrained by the dialectic between the professional disciplines of law and mental health. This paper lays out several concerns with an emphasis on the view of a juvenile court judge. Examples are: ambiguity in stating ultimate opinions, differentials for juvenile competence standards, and questions about reasonable accommodations. Differences between the disciplines, exacerbated by personal biases, may lead to unjust results. The purpose of this paper is to present to juvenile forensic evaluators suggestions for limiting the tensions between the disciplines and enhancing the value of expert opinions.
