role of culture-behavioral presentations

forensic psychology

Week 6, you learned about the importance of diversity in forensic assessment, specifically, understanding the role of culture in behavioral presentations, including criminal behavior. Diversity considerations in diagnoses and test measures were also explored.

For Week 6’s assignment, you will choose a forensic assessment measure to investigate. Your measure may be a risk assessment, structured clinical interview, personality test, trauma inventory, among others. You can access Tests, Measurements, and Scales through the NCU library by clicking the link located under your course resources for this week.

After reviewing and selecting a forensic measure, you will then design an advertisement for the measure, specifically marketing its use with diverse populations. Your advertisement should:

  1. Discuss the importance of cultural competence in forensic assessment.
  2. Explore the benefits of using a measure that is culturally competent.
  3. Identify how the measure you selected is culturally competent and why it should be used, as opposed to another measure.
  4. Be creative! This does not have to be a pp but rather can be a flier or handout.

Support your advertisement with at least two references from peer-reviewed journals.

Length: 1-2 pages

Your advertisement should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
