Course Description:

NOTE: All class sessions will be held at the Institute of Law, Psychiatry and Public Policy in the Cedars Court office suite near Barracks Road.

This interdisciplinary seminar examines mental health issues in juvenile justice. Students will include law students, as well as students in psychology, education, and related fields (enrolled under EDHS 589). Seminar sessions will include key issues in juvenile forensic mental health e.g., adjudicative competency, criminal responsibility, waiver to adult courts, juvenile sexual offending, school violence, and the prevalence of mental illness within the juvenile justice system. In addition to traditional seminar class sessions, the course includes case studies, the observation of live and videotaped forensic mental health evaluations conducted through the Institute, and participation in a mock trial. Readings will include case law and social science research literature. The course will meet Wednesdays 4-6 pm at the Forensic Psychiatry Clinic of the Institute of Law, Psychiatry, and Public Policy.

The instructors are Professors Daniel Murrie, Ph.D. (Department of Psychiatry) and Dewey Cornell, Ph. D. (Curry School of Education).
