Civil and Criminal Forensic Assessments: How can we help, how can we harm

The objective of this presentation is to outline the role of Psychologists as Forensic experts and to expose how we can influence the Court to take into account the flaws of the biopsychiatry model and give more humanizing care to the ones in need. We will also provide case exemples in which our work has been helpful or disadvantageous for clients

 Learning Objectives:

Better understand the role forensic psychologists may have, especially in educating the Court on the weak science behind the biopsych model. Better understand our influence in the way Judges will handle Court Ordered care.
