Forensics

Child Evaluation

Commonly requested in cases of child maltreatment or custody cases, Child Evaluations are provided with the most extensive assessment including recommendations to prevent future issues. These evaluations are typically comprised of intellectual, academic, personality and behavior assessments as well as extensive interviews with the child. Collateral interviews and record reviews are also critical components of Child Evaluations.

We determine psychological damage when a child has experienced a life-altering event, been the victim of a crime or experienced medical malpractice. In the event that a child will be testifying in a civil or criminal trial, competency from a psycho-legal standpoint is ascertained. Intellectual capacity and factors such as suggestibility, developmental level, linguistic competency and motivation to be truthful are assessed.

Criminal Evaluation

Receiving referrals from prosecutors, defenders and judges is a strong indicator of the unbiased evaluations provided by PSIMED CORRECTIONS. In many instances, all parties have agreed to a single evaluation by PSIMED CORRECTIONS instead of dual evaluations that represent the perspective of the referral source.

We believe that the most accurate profile of a defendant will be developed by combining the best of clinical and actuarial data. This profile is then integrated with the specific legal question, separate from any judgment on guilt or innocence. Our services include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Competency to Stand Trial
  • Criminal Responsibility
  • Competency to Understand Miranda Rights
  • Parenting / Custody
  • Competency to Waive Rights
  • Sentencing Recommendations
  • Competency to Refuse an Insanity Defense
  • Sexual Offender
  • Competency to Accept a Plea
  • Transfer to Adult Status
  • Child Abuse/Neglect
  • Violence Risk
