Forensic Psychiatry & Psychology
What are Forensic Psychiatry & Forensic Psychology?
Simply put, forensic psychiatry and forensic psychology entail the practical application of clinical psychology to the law. They encompass the interface between law and psychology/psychiatry. Our forensic psychiatrists and psychologists have specialised training in mental health and the law.
The Scope of Forensic Psychiatry/Forensic Psychology
,People of any age, background, gender, ethnicity, race, and religion with mental health issues may become entangled with the legal system. The assistance of a forensic psychiatrist and psychologist is thereby required to help the court determine whether the offender’s mental health issues caused and/or contributed towards the commission of the offence(s).
Forensic psychiatrists and psychologists work with any litigants (a person involved in a court case) in a potential or on-going court case. For example, in the context of criminal law, forensic psychiatrists and psychologists can work with offenders and victims of crime, as well as those who are at risk of prosecution. Likewise, in family law, forensic psychiatrists and psychologists are often called upon to mentally assess divorcing parties or the children of divorce, to help the court determine issues relating to custody, care and control, or access.
Forensic psychiatrists and psychologists also liaise with other legal and mental health professionals in order to resolve their clients’ issues.
