Forensic Psychological Evaluation

Forensic Psychological Evaluation

A general psychological evaluation typically assesses whether the individual in question suffers from any psychiatric condition or possesses specific personality characteristics that may impact the present legal concern. Usually, the court or attorney recommends such evaluation, and their specific questions are addressed and answered.

The process typically includes a forensic interview with the individual in question, psychological testing, interview of collateral sources, review of relevant legal records, and review of physical and mental health records. A forensic report is written and provided to the attorney or the court.
