Good enough for government work: The development and dissemination of psycho-legal instruments

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



Abstract:

With the ever-increasing proliferation of forensic assessment instruments and techniques, clinicians are increasingly faced with questions about which measures to use from the array of available alternatives. Moreover, while broad legal standards exist to guide judges in determining whether expert testimony is admissible (i.e., Frye and Daubert), judicial determinations regarding the admissibility of tests or procedures are both infrequent and impermanent (i.e., initial determinations of inadmissibility may be revisited as additional evidence emerges). Numerous examples of this problem exist, including each of the instruments that are addressed in the first four presentations (the SIRS-2, M-FAST, Rey-15 Recognition test, and MAP); each will be discussed in this presentation (along with other examples). This presentation focuses on exploring both the problems associated with new and recently revised measures as well as methods to address some of the many issues that arise.
