Congrats to Shelby Hunter, who won a competitive scholarship to attend the Neuropsychology in Forensic and Legal Practice Workshop at the American Psychology-Law Society's Meeting in March!
Workshop details: Neuropsychology is the scientific study of brain-behavior relationships. Forensic and legal practitioners often work with individuals experiencing cognitive deficits due to mental illness, neurological injury/illness, or other medical conditions, and are increasingly tasked with determining how these conditions are affecting individuals' legally-relevant behaviors. This workshop will describe the current state of neuropsychology in civil and criminal forensic contexts, and then focus on practical applications for forensic clinicians and legal professionals working with neuropsychological concepts. The workshop will incorporate didactic training, audience questions, and group discussion to ensure the information provided is tailored to participants' interests and needs.
