Psychology and the Criminal Justice System


The application of psychological theory, assessment, and clinically informed judgment within the context of the criminal justice system are a few of the duties performed by forensic psychologists. Risk assessment to identify violent offenders and their propensity for future violence is often a critical step in the legal process to inform treatment recommendation and sentencing. Various empirically validated tools are necessary to evaluate and identify the specific traits of offenders prone to recidivism and violence. Despite this, there remains a debate regarding the accuracy of these predictions and their utility. As a result, this is a topic worthy of further examination and discussion. Based on the information presented and examined in this course, discuss the importance of psychology in the criminal justice system. Examine the traits that distinguish between non-violent and violent offenders. State your opinion on whether recidivism and violent behavior can be accurately predicted.

Give reasons and support your statements with scholarly references and appropriate examples.

Approximately 300 – 500 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.

Using any of the evidence-based practices lists or the SAMHSA toolkit series, pick a program or practice and describe the program, including the intended audience, program components and intended outcomes. Then discuss how the evidence was built to support its inclusion on a list.  For example, was it evaluated by an independent evaluator?  What specific design was used (experimental design, quasi-experimental, pre/post, etc.)?  How many evaluations were conducted?  Was the fidelity of the program measured? Were the instruments that were used reliable and valid?  How strong was the evidence?  Most of this information will be on the NREPP list so you can get your information from there.  Then discuss whether you think the evidence is strong enough to support its inclusion on the list, and if it is not, why not?






During the first week of class you conducted your first practice interview.  You have since had the opportunity to learn about the formal process of interviewing and the techniques used in interviewing. With this new information in mind, it is time to develop a detailed plan for your second interview, which you may conduct face-to-face or over the telephone. Your second interview is broken down into two parts.

 The first portion, preparing for the interview, is due this week in Module 3 (LASA 1).


For this week you will be completing A. You will need to:

 Locate a Volunteer:

He/she will play the role of “client” seeking help for persistent headaches and problems sleeping. The person you interview can be someone you know personally or you can contact your classmates through the Student Lounge to arrange to interview one another. The client believes that stress may be part of the problem with his/her symptoms.  Remember that this is a role play, and your volunteer should be aware that this is a practice interview and not a real psychological interview.  Prior to conducting your interview, ask your volunteer to think about stress that s/he can discuss related to the client’s problems (e.g., your client may think about stress from a job or stress related to a relationship with a significant other). However, DO NOT have your volunteer discuss this stress with you prior to the interview. You want to be able to explore this topic in depth during your interview. This scenario is intentionally left open-ended in order to allow students to maximize opportunity to utilize interview skills during the interview. Create an Interview Guide: In order to achieve a quality interview, you will need to first plan your interview, which is this week’s assignment (you will conduct and analyze the interview in Module 5).  The purpose of your interview is to gather in-depth information to aid in diagnosis and treatment planning for the client.  You will need to gather detailed information about the symptoms being reported for both headaches and sleep problems (e.g., How often are the headaches occurring?  How long do they last?  What do they feel like?  Has any treatment helped?  Is there any pattern to the headaches?).  You will also need to present a complete picture of the patient.  What is the patient’s gender, age, marital status, and employment status?  Be sure to go beyond these example questions, and provide an in-depth, highly detailed interview with your client. 


Interview Guide Topics

The Interview Guide should directly address the below topics.  Use each of these topics as headings within your paper to ensure that you directly respond to each.  You should respond with at least a paragraph for each topic/heading.

 Identify and summarize the purpose of your interview.  How will the information you gather be used? Explain how you will structure the interview and your reasoning behind the structuring of the interview. Include a list of topics you plan to cover. Compose the questions you will use to obtain the information (develop a minimum of 15-20 questions). Be sure that you develop a minimum of 5 open and 5 closed ended questions. Develop a minimum of 5 examples of paraphrasing, summaries, or

reflections techniques that could be used during your interview (must have at least one of each paraphrase, summary, and reflection). When you conduct your actual interview, these exact examples you create may not fit depending on the responses of your interviewee, but it is important to start thinking now about how you will incorporate these techniques.  For this Interview Guide assignment, develop hypothetical examples of each type of technique. Identify the opening techniques you will utilize to build rapport with the volunteer/client. Identify types/examples of questions you want to avoid during interview.


Include an Analysis Summary:


In addition to the Interview Guide include an analysis (2-3 paragraphs) of your own preliminary thoughts about this client based on the limited information you have about this client. Have you ever known a person with chronic headaches or sleep problems? What is your “gut reaction” to hearing about a patient with chronic headaches and problems sleeping? That the person is a complainer? Is he/she a victim of terrible illness? Spend some time examining your thoughts and attitudes. It is normal for all of us to make at least preliminary assumptions about everyone we come in to contact with, and a good interviewer has awareness of his or her preliminary assumptions. Include the following in your analysis:

 Identify your own beliefs (sympathetic, unsympathetic, or some mixture of both) and explain how these could affect your interview. Do you think that your beliefs are influenced by your own age, cultural, gender, sexual orientation, or ethnicity? Identify steps you can take to limit the impact of your own beliefs on the interview. Be as specific as possible.






Develop a PowerPoint presentation of 15-18 slides, addressing neglect and abuse of dependent adults and the elderly. Create speaker notes for each of the slides. Include the following in your presentation:

Part 1: Substance Use

1.    Physical consequence of substance use disorders

2.    Emotional consequences of substance use disorders

3.    Cognitive consequence of substance use disorders

4.    Spiritual consequences of substance use disorders (end-of-life)

Part 2: Abuse and Neglect

1.    Common forms of vulnerable adult and elderly neglect

2.    Warning signs of vulnerable adult and elderly abuse

3.    Legal and ethical considerations for reporting abuse and/or neglect of vulnerable adults and the elderly

In addition, include slides for a title, introduction, conclusion, and references (four slides minimum).

Include a minimum of four scholarly references in your presentation

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are not required to submit this assignment to Turnitin.

“Attribution and Stereotypes” Respond to one (1) of the following discussion topics:According to the textbook, fundamental attribution error occurs when we focus less on the situation we are in and more on personal characteristics to describe behavior. Provide one (1) example of the primary manner in which situational and dispositional attributions differ. Explain at least one (1) reason why these errors in judgment may cause problems in evaluating behavior. Explain the formation of stereotypes. Next, identify the one (1) approach that you believe would be the most effective way for society to reduce stereotypes. Provide a rationale for your response.
