Robert A. Schug, Ph.D. presents a live virtual professional training program on Insanity Evaluations: Advanced Applications.

This program is designed for experienced (advanced-level) forensic psychologists and psychiatrists who specialize in conducting court-appointed insanity evaluations. It is also suitable for other mental health professionals interested in insanity assessment, provided they have some prior experience in this field.

The psycho-legal question of insanity is one of the most challenging to address in forensic assessment, as understanding an individual’s mental state at the time of a criminal offense presents unique challenges, particularly when a period of time has passed between the offense and the evaluation.

This program will present advanced techniques and strategies in the assessment of insanity for the forensic evaluator, utilizing what the presenter refers to as a “researcher mentality.” Three primary sources of evaluation data are discussed, with an emphasis on psychological testing and less conventional, more “out-of-the-box” sources of collateral information. Advanced data analysis and integration, case conceptualization and formulation, report writing, courtroom testimony, and other important considerations are also discussed.
