Fitness to Stand Trial Assessments
|Presenters||Dr Greg Dear|
The issue as to whether an individual has the required competency to stand trial is a legal question which often requires the opinion of appropriately trained psychologists. This workshop will cover:
A model to guide evaluating applicants against the criteria set out in s9 of the Act to determine whether or not an individual is fit to stand trial; and
Training in the skills required to complete these assessments for the Courts in a competent manner.
