Week 14

In this assignment, you will focus on evaluations typically conducted for juvenile courts. Some specific purposes of these evaluations include informing the courts of the juvenile’s competency and treatment needs and aiding the courts in adjudication decisions. These evaluations also might help the courts determine appropriate sentences for juveniles charged with crimes. The evaluator has the challenging responsibility of presenting the evaluation results for these intended purposes.

Tasks:

Write a 3- to 4-page paper, including the following points:

  • A forensic psychology professional may be asked to conduct different types of juvenile court evaluations. Using the library resources and the Internet, research professional literature available on these evaluations. Professional literature may include relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, and .gov).
  • Identify and discuss the forensic psychology professional’s role in juvenile courts.
  • Compare and contrast three different types of evaluations the forensic psychology professional is asked to perform in juvenile courts.
