2. McNichols, Brandon., Gowensmith, W.. and Jul, Erik. "Forensic evaluators and conditional release evaluations: Is evaluator agreement of CR Readiness related to rehospitalization?" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society / 4th International Congress of Psychology and Law, Hyatt Regency Miami, Miami, FL, Mar 02, 2011 <Not Available>. 2019-06-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p482987_index.html>

Abstract: We examined 35 cases (100 evaluation reports) in which three independent evaluators provided opinions about a defendant’s readiness for CR. Evaluators showed perfect agreement in 54.3% of cases, and showed either unanimous or majority support for CR in 65.7% of cases. Courts granted CR in 87% of the cases in which at least two of three evaluators recommended CR. Finally, cases in which evaluators had unanimously supported CR had rehospitalization rates of 14.3% within three years of conditional release; cases with a dissenting opinion had a 66.7% rehospitalization rate. These results highlight important implications for CR cases involving evaluator disagreement.

Evaluator agreement in evaluations of competence to stand trial." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the American Psychology - Law Society, Westin Bayshore Hotel, Vancouver, BC, Canada, Mar 18, 2010 <Not Available>. 2019-06-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p398904_index.html>

Abstract: When two different clinicians evaluate a defendant’s competence to stand trial (CST), how likely are those clinicians to reach the same conclusion? We examined 254 cases in which three evaluators, working separately, provided a CST opinion for the same felony defendant. Results revealed perfect agreement in approximately two-thirds of cases, but evaluators reached different opinions in approximately one-third of cases. These results are among the first to document evaluator agreement in routine forensic practice, and allow us to examine some of the factors associated with evaluator disagreement.

Abstract: In the last decade, behavioral economics has gained prominence both as an area of research and a policy tool. While generating great insight into the cognitive processes underlying judgment and choice, this field has shed less light on how these processes work in everyday settings. Through a study of food choice among lower- and higher-income families, I show how behavioral economics and sociology can be fruitfully integrated. I find that people evaluate the affordability of food not in absolute dollar amounts, but in relation to other foods, which frame items as affordable or expensive by contrast. Behavioral economists have also found that people assess the value of goods relationally, but they have not identified the points of reference that people draw on in everyday life. In food choice, reference points come from the food environment, from individual-level skills, and from shared consumption patterns. I develop the concept of cultural anchoring to describe how the reference points that “anchor” people’s evaluations can vary across groups that have different beliefs and practices. I discuss how behavioral economics can illuminate the cognitive biases underlying judgment and choice, while cultural sociology offers an understanding of how sociocultural contexts undergird these processes in everyday decision-making.
