Summative Forensic Case Report

*Imagine you have been hired as a consultant to conduct risk assessment in six separate domains of forensic psychology: mental health/diminished capacity, offender risk assessment, substance abuse potential, trauma symptoms among children, child abuse potential, and violence risk assessment. For each domain, you will be required to develop reports based on their associated scenarios (scenarios are located in each module that contains a milestone). You will need to assess the data sets from the objective tests used in each domain, as well as review the interview information and collateral information for each case, and create a subsequent recommendations report specific to each domain. You will be required to incorporate appropriate ethical guidelines in each of your recommendations reports.*******
