Demographic, Criminogenic, and Psychiatric Factors That Predict Competency Restoration -poster

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



Abstract:

Competency restoration is a common practice in forensic psychology yet little is known about the course of treatment defendants undergo or how this relates to outcome. A record review of 30 competency restoration patients in a maximum-security forensic hospital revealed that 70% ultimately were found competent. Defendants who were deemed unrestorable after a course of treatment had longer lengths of stay and lower functional capabilities, and course of treatment variables better predicted length of hospitalization than did demographic or legal variables. The results will be discussed in terms of their implications for evaluators and treaters of adjudicative competency.
