Benefits of Forensic Evaluations

Forensic evaluations address important psycholegal questions that can help courts make decisions on sentencing, granting privileges, and community reintegration, keeping the community safer while protecting defendant's rights.

Current best practices recommend utilizing multiple sources of information in making risk assessments, including:


  • Reviewing available records (clinical records, police reports, and arrest records)

  • A thorough clinical interview

  • Empirically-based instruments for predicting risk for violence (e.g., Psychopathy Checklist-Revised, Violence Risk Appraisal Guide)

Given today’s technology in the field of forensic psychology, one can be confident in the expert opinion of a qualified forensic scientist.
