Facts, opinions and guesses in Psychological assessments

Children's Court Bar Association

Psychological reports add value to the Judicial process, however there appears to be a significant variance in the quality of the reports and often conflicting perspectives presented by Psychologists on the same issue. This presentation provides an over-view of the research into Psychological assessments, Psychological opinions and the strength of different methodologies used to create these reports. Key topics will include the use of research to inform assessments, the place of the Psychologists experience in decision making and the value of psychometrics.
