This live workshop on Case Conceptualization in Juvenile Competency Evaluations is presented by Ivan Kruh, PhD and Christina R. Riggs Romaine, PhD in partnership with The National Youth Screening & AssessmentPartners (NYSAP).
The value of an evaluation model is best appreciated through its applied use. This workshop will focus on applying Grisso’s (2005) Five-Question Juvenile Competence Evaluation Model to a sample juvenile competence case. Evaluation materials for the case will be distributed in a manner that parallels a typical evaluation process in many settings, progressing from the initial referral, through collateral information gathering, and interviewing of the youth. Through group and dyadic discussions, participants will be guided in the analysis of the data contained in these materials using the organizational structure of the Five-Question Model, and then progressively work toward formulating the evaluation opinions essential to adequately informing the court. Effective communication of these opinions to the courts will also be discussed.
