Sample text

In the courtroom, attorneys will prove their points with behaviors rather than paying attention to the underlying cognitions required leading to confusion about which neurocognitive skill(s) underlie a given action. In the same manner, defense attorneys will reverse the process, denying higher level involvement when it appears to be present. While these actions reflect adversarial roles of the attorneys on each side, psychologists must be open to an honest interpretation of the data, which may lead to conclusions that do not support the side that hired them.

As previously noted, traditional personality tests are divided into objective and projective measures. Because of the reliance of test as expert rather than the clinician as expert historically, the preference has moved toward objective selfreport tests which can even be interpreted (in theory) by a computer. These tests use a variation of a true–false format and rely on past research to relate responses to those of normal and abnormal samples. These tests can be very valuable additions to any test battery but their reliance on self-report opens them to exaggeration, under-reporting, and misinterpretation by the client with limited or unusual (albeit sincere) insights into their own motivation and behavior.

Another factor, although it should not be from a psychological perspective, is who the psychologist is working for in the case. Prosecutors, on the whole, prefer to avoid extensive histories and evaluations which may indicate mitigating factors or a mental health defense. They believe that it is the responsibility of the defense to discover and identify such factors and do not hire experts to help the defense, but rather to bolster the prosecution. They may do this by limiting hours on the case so that intensive interview is not possible.
