Pregnancy Denied, Pregnancy Rejected In Stephanie Daley, Susan Ayres, Prema Manjunath May 2016

Pregnancy Denied, Pregnancy Rejected In Stephanie Daley, Susan Ayres, Prema Manjunath

Susan Ayres

This article offers a reading of Hilary Brougher’s film Stephanie Daley (2006), in which a teen is accused of murdering her newborn (neonaticide). Brougher depicts a “phenomenology of unwanted pregnancy” and an example of therapeutic jurisprudence. Part One examines Brougher’s treatment of the “shadow side of pregnancy,” and highlights barriers to the empathetic treatment of neonaticide. Part Two emphasizes the process of therapeutic jurisprudence as experienced by the two main characters. Brougher’s film provides a social narrative and phenomenology that may influence laws and legal responses and enlarge social understanding of unwanted pregnancy.


Minors, Parents, And Minor Parents, Maya Manian Dec 2015

Minors, Parents, And Minor Parents, Maya Manian

Maya Manian

As numerous scholars have noted, the law takes a strikingly incoherent approach to adolescent reproduction.  States overwhelmingly allow a teenage girl to independently consent to pregnancy care and medical treatment for her child, and even to give up her child for adoption, all without notice to her parents, but require parental notice or consent for abortion.  This Article argues that this oft-noted contradiction in the law on teenage reproductive decision-making is in fact not as contradictory as it first appears.  A closer look at the law’s apparently conflicting approaches to teenage abortion and teenage childbirth exposes common ground that ...


The Macarthur Adjudicative Competence Study: The Development And Validation Of A Research Instrument, Steven Hoge, Richard Bonnie, Norman Poythress, John Monahan Dec 2015

The Macarthur Adjudicative Competence Study: The Development And Validation Of A Research Instrument, Steven Hoge, Richard Bonnie, Norman Poythress, John Monahan

Norman Poythress

Assessment of competence to stand trial is a common evaluation that can have substantial consequences for defendants and the criminal justice system. Despite a voluminous literature, much remains unknown. An obstacle to progress in understanding what is better termed ldquoadjudicative competencerdquo is the absence of structured, standardized research measures for assessment of defendants. This article presents the legal framework, assessment strategy, instrument description, psychometric properties, and construct validation of the MacArthur Structured Assessment of the Competencies of Criminal Defendants (MacSAC-CD). The measures meet or exceed accepted indices of internal consistency, and interscorer agreement. Observed patterns of correlations among measures support ...


Correspondence Between Self-Report And Interview-Based Assessments Of Antisocial Personality Disorder, Laura Guy, Norman Poythress, Kevin Douglas, Jennifer Skeem Dec 2015

Correspondence Between Self-Report And Interview-Based Assessments Of Antisocial Personality Disorder, Laura Guy, Norman Poythress, Kevin Douglas, Jennifer Skeem

Norman Poythress

Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) is associated with suicide, violence, and risk-taking behavior and can slow response to first-line treatment for Axis I disorders. ASPD may be assessed infrequently because few efficient diagnostic tools are available. This study evaluated 2 promising self-report measures for assessing ASPD—the ASPD scale of the Personality Diagnostic Questionnaire-4 (PDQ-4; S. E. Hyler, 1994) and the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI; L. Morey, 1991, 2007)—as well as the ASPD module of the Structured Clinical Interview for DSM–IV Axis II (SCID-II; M. B. First, R. L. Spitzer, M. Gibbon, J. B. W. Williams, & L. S. Benjamin ...


Mentally Ill And Non-Mentally Ill Defendants' Abilities To Understand Information Relevant To Adjudication: A Preliminary Study, Steven Hoge, Norman Poythress, Richard Bonnie, Marlene Eisenberg Dec 2015

Mentally Ill And Non-Mentally Ill Defendants' Abilities To Understand Information Relevant To Adjudication: A Preliminary Study, Steven Hoge, Norman Poythress, Richard Bonnie, Marlene Eisenberg

Norman Poythress

The legal construct of competence to stand trial, or “adjudicative competence,” is based on the premise that some mentally disordered defendants have impaired abilities when compared with most defendants and that adjudication should be barred if these competence-related abilities are significantly impaired. Where the line is drawn between sufficient and insufficient abilities has important consequences: as a result of being adjudicated incompetent, defendants may be detained and treated involuntarily and their trials will be delayed. However, no studies have systematically compared the capacities of relevant groups of defendants. In this studv. 84 criminal defendants—42 of whom were hospitalized as ...

The Broward Mental Health Court: Process, Outcomes, And Service Utilization, Roger Boothroyd, Norman Poythress, Annette Christy, John Petrila Dec 2015

The Broward Mental Health Court: Process, Outcomes, And Service Utilization, Roger Boothroyd, Norman Poythress, Annette Christy, John Petrila

Norman Poythress

Mental health courts are one of a variety of special jurisdiction courts that have been created in a number of countries, including the United States (Petrila, 2003). While there is no prototypical mental health court (Steadman, Davidson, & Brown, 2001; Watson, Luchins, & Hanrahan, 2001), most of those in existence today share several common characteristics. These include (a) the creation of a special docket (usually, but not always, nonviolent misdemeanants with mental illness) that is (b) handled by a particular judge, with (c) a primary goal of diverting defendants from the criminal justice system and into treatment (Goldkamp & Irons-Guynn, 2000). In addition, the principle of therapeutic jurisprudence has been influential as a philosophic basis for the creation of some if not all mental health courts. ‘‘Therapeutic jurisprudence’’ has been offered as a way for courts and attorneys to examine ‘‘the extent to which substantive rules, legal procedures, and the roles of lawyers and judges produce therapeutic or antitherapeutic consequences’’ (Wexler & Winick, 1991). Both mental health court (Wren, 1998) and drug court judges (Hora, Schma, & Rosenthal, 1999) have been explicit in their reliance on therapeutic jurisprudence as the underpinning of their courts. We are currently evaluating the Broward County Florida Mental Health Court (MHC), one of the first mental health courts in the United States.1 Full details of this evaluation are described elsewhere (McGaha, Boothroyd, Poythress, Petrila, & Ort, 2002; Petrila, Poythress, McGaha, & Boothroyd, 2001). In one part of the evaluation, we have examined the MHC process itself, including the volume and nature of courtroom communications and formal outcomes.We have also gathered data on the utilization of treatment services by individuals in the MHC as well as by individuals in a traditional misdemeanor court chosen as a comparison site (Hillsborough ...


Psychopathic Features In A Juvenile Diversion Population: Reliability And Predictive Validity Of Two Self-Report Measures, Diana Falkenbach, Norman Poythress, Kathleen Heide Dec 2015

Psychopathic Features In A Juvenile Diversion Population: Reliability And Predictive Validity Of Two Self-Report Measures, Diana Falkenbach, Norman Poythress, Kathleen Heide

Norman Poythress

The reliability and predictive validity of two experimental self-report versions of two measures of psychopathic features in youth, the Antisocial Process Screening Device (APSD: Frick & Hare, 2001) and a modified version of the Child Psychopathy Scale (CPS: Lynam, 1997) were examined in a sample of 69 arrested youth (M age¼14.4 years) referred to a juvenile diversion program. Parents or legal guardians completed parent-rating versions of the same measures. Reliability indicators for the APSD total measure were satisfactory although internal consistency indices (coefficient alpha) for the Callous/Unemotional and Impulsive/Conduct Problems scales were slightly lower than desirable. Reliability indicators ...


Evaluation Of The Hare-Pscan In A Non-Clinical Population, Cristal Elwood, Norman Poythress, Kevin Douglas Dec 2015

Evaluation Of The Hare-Pscan In A Non-Clinical Population, Cristal Elwood, Norman Poythress, Kevin Douglas

Norman Poythress

Using 100 university undergraduates as participants, this study examined the structural reliability and construct validity of Hare and Hervé's P-SCAN (Hare & Hervé, 1999) a 90-item measure that purports to serve as an “… early warning system” or “rough screening device” (p. 1) for identifying individuals with substantial psychopathic features. Internal consistency indices (e.g. Cronbach's α, mean inter-item correlations) for the three P-SCAN subscales (Interpersonal, Affective, Lifestyle) suggested excellent reliability. Statistically significant, though modest correlations (range 0.21–0.33) were obtained in 5 of 6 comparisons with the self-report Primary psychopathy and Secondary psychopathy scales developed by Levenson ...

Psychometric Properties Of Carver And White’S (1994) Bis/Bas Scales In A Large Sample Of Offenders, Norman Poythress, Jennifer Skeem, John Weir, Scott Lilienfeld Dec 2015

Psychometric Properties Of Carver And White’S (1994) Bis/Bas Scales In A Large Sample Of Offenders, Norman Poythress, Jennifer Skeem, John Weir, Scott Lilienfeld

Norman Poythress

Contemporary motivational theories of psychopathy (Lykken, 1995) employ constructs from Gray’s Reinforcement Sensitivity Theory (RST; Gray, 1982), behavioral inhibition system (BIS) and behavioral activation system (BAS) functioning, to explain etiologic differences in psychopathy subtypes. Carver and White’s (1994) BIS/BAS scales are the most widely used measures of these constructs, yet there is a dearth of research on how these measures perform with offenders. Using a sample of 1515 offenders, we found evidence that five, rather than the usual four factors, underpin the BIS/BAS scales. Importantly, BIS items that tap into anxiety and fear sensitivity, respectively, split ...


The Relationship Between Psychopathic Personality Features And Malingering Symptoms Of Major Mental Illness, Norman Poythress, John Edens, M. Watkins Dec 2015

The Relationship Between Psychopathic Personality Features And Malingering Symptoms Of Major Mental Illness, Norman Poythress, John Edens, M. Watkins

Norman Poythress

This study examined the relationship between psychopathy and malingering in a subsample of male prison inmates (n D 55) participating in a larger study of the clinical utility of various assessment measures in correctional settings. Participants’ capacity to feign major mental illness successfully was evaluated using standard cutoff scores for the detection of malingering on a variety of instruments, including the Structured Inventory of Malingered Symptomatology (SIMS; G. P. Smith & G. O. Burger, 1997), the Structured Interview of Reported Symptoms (SIRS; R. Rogers, R. M. Bagby, & S. E. Dickens, 1992), and the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI; L. Morey, 1991). Psychopathic traits were assessed via the Psychopathic Personality Inventory (PPI; S.O. Lilienfeld & B. P. Andrews, 1996). Correlations between the malingering indices ...

Stability Of Psychiatric Patients' Perceptions Of Their Admission Experience, Michele Cascardi, Norman Poythress, Lee Ritterband Dec 2015

Stability Of Psychiatric Patients' Perceptions Of Their Admission Experience, Michele Cascardi, Norman Poythress, Lee Ritterband

Norman Poythress

The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the stability (i.e., consistency of patients’ responses over time) of newly developed scales to measure the admission experience of psychiatric hospitalization. Eighty-four psychiatric patients involuntarily committed to a crisis stabilization unit participated. All participants were admitted under an emergency petition or ex parte order for a psychiatric evaluation. Patients were interviewed soon after admission (M 5 3.33 days, SD 5 1.86 days). The test–retest interval was 24–48 hours with most (83.3%) re-evaluated at 24 hours. Overall, the measures showed acceptable levels of stability (r ’s ...


Correlates Of Perceived Coercion During Psychiatric Hospital Admission, Michelle Cascardi, Norman Poythress Dec 2015

Correlates Of Perceived Coercion During Psychiatric Hospital Admission, Michelle Cascardi, Norman Poythress

Norman Poythress

The objectives of this study were to replicate the study of C. W. Lidz et al (see record 1996-15479-001); examine the differences in perceptions about hospital admission for voluntary and involuntary patients (16 yr olds and older), all of whom had been involuntarily detained initially for psychiatric evaluation; and examine the impact of community members vs hospital staff, locus of control, and psychiatric symptom severity on patients' perceptions of coercion. Results substantiate earlier findings of Lidz et al in that legal status (involuntary), procedural justice, and negative pressures are significantly related to perceived coercion. Although all patients in this study ...

Further Validation Of The Psychopathic Personality Inventory Among Offenders: Personality And Behavioral Correlates, John Edens, Norman Poythress, M. Watkins Dec 2015

Further Validation Of The Psychopathic Personality Inventory Among Offenders: Personality And Behavioral Correlates, John Edens, Norman Poythress, M. Watkins

Norman Poythress

The Psychopathic Personality Inventory (PPI; Lilienfeld & Andrews, 1996) is a relatively new self-report measure that has shown considerable promise as an index of psychopathic traits in both nonoffender and offender samples. The present study examined the construct validity and predictive utility of the PPI by examining its association with theoretically relevant scales of the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI; Morey, 1991) among 60 male prison inmates, and its ability to predict institutional misbehavior in an expanded sample (n = 89). As expected, correlations with the PAI scales were highest for the Antisocial Features (ANT) and Aggression (AGG) scales (rs = .68 and .57, respectively). The PPI also predicted various forms of nonviolent and physically aggressive disciplinary infractions significantly better than chance (point biserial correlations ranging from .26 to .37).


Reliability Of Risk Assessment Measures Used In Sexually Violent Predator Proceedings, Cailey Miller, Randy Otto, Eva Kimonis, Adam Wasserman Dec 2015

Reliability Of Risk Assessment Measures Used In Sexually Violent Predator Proceedings, Cailey Miller, Randy Otto, Eva Kimonis, Adam Wasserman

Eva Kimonis

The field interrater reliability of three assessment tools frequently used by mental health professionals when evaluating sex offenders’ risk for reoffending—the Psychopathy Checklist–Revised (PCL-R), the Minnesota Sex Offender Screening Tool–Revised (MnSOST-R) and the Static-99—was examined within the context of sexually violent predator program proceedings. Rater agreement was highest for the Static-99 (intraclass correlation coefficient [ICC1] .78) and lowest for the PCL-R (ICC1 .60; MnSOST-R ICC1 .74), although all instruments demonstrated lower field reliability than that reported in their test manuals. Findings raise concerns about the reliability of risk assessment tools that are used to inform judgments ...


Construct Validity Of The Youth Psychopathic Features Inventory (Ypi) And The Antisocial Process Screening Device (Apsd) With Justice Involved Adolescents, Norman Poythress, Richard Dembo, Jennifer Wareham, Paul Greenbaum Dec 2015

Construct Validity Of The Youth Psychopathic Features Inventory (Ypi) And The Antisocial Process Screening Device (Apsd) With Justice Involved Adolescents, Norman Poythress, Richard Dembo, Jennifer Wareham, Paul Greenbaum

Norman Poythress

Two measures of psychopathic features in youths, the self-report version of the Antisocial Process Screening Device (APSD) and the Youth Psychopathic traits Inventory (YPI) were administered to 165 youths in a juvenile diversion program. For both measures, internal consistency was poor for the scales that assess the affective domain of psychopathic features; otherwise, internal consistency was excellent for the YPI and generally superior to that of the APSD. However, the published three-factor models for both measures did not replicate when examined using confirmatory factor analysis. Both measures obtained the expected correlations with measures of a variety of criminal justice (e ...


The Macarthur Adjudicative Competence Study: A Comparison Of Criteria For Assessing The Competence Of Criminal Defendants, Richard Bonnie, Steven Hoge, John Monahan, Norman Poythress Dec 2015

The Macarthur Adjudicative Competence Study: A Comparison Of Criteria For Assessing The Competence Of Criminal Defendants, Richard Bonnie, Steven Hoge, John Monahan, Norman Poythress

Norman Poythress

A set of measures assessing competence-related abilities was administered to three groups of criminal defendants: a group committed for restoration of competence, a group identified by jail personnel as mentally ill but not incompetent, and a group without identified mental disorder. Data from this study were used to test key assumptions bearing on the legal criteria for adjudicative competence. The. data show that among defendants able to understand the nature and purpose of the criminal proceedings, a significant proportion have an impaired ability to appreciate their situations as criminal defendants or to communicate relevant information to counsel; among defendants able ...


Evaluating The Efficiency And Community Safety Goals Of The Broward County Mental Health Court, Annette Christy, Norman Poythress, Roger Boothroyd, John Petrila Dec 2015

Evaluating The Efficiency And Community Safety Goals Of The Broward County Mental Health Court, Annette Christy, Norman Poythress, Roger Boothroyd, John Petrila

Norman Poythress

Mental health courts have developed as one response to persons with mental illness who are involved with the criminal justice system. This study investigated the efficiency and safety goals of one such court in Broward County, FL. Mental health court (MHC) clients spent significantly fewer days in jail for the index arrest associated with study enrollment than a comparison group. MHC clients had similar survival time to re-arrest up to one year after study enrollment. MHC clients did not significantly differ from the comparison group in selfreported aggressive acts over an 8 month follow-up period, while they did self-report significantly ...


Types Of Aggression, Responsiveness To Provocation, And Callous-Unemotional Traits In Detained Adolescents, Luna Muñoz, Paul Frick, Eva Kimonis, Katherine Aucoin Dec 2015

Types Of Aggression, Responsiveness To Provocation, And Callous-Unemotional Traits In Detained Adolescents, Luna Muñoz, Paul Frick, Eva Kimonis, Katherine Aucoin

Eva Kimonis

The present study investigated differences in the behavioral and psychophysiological responses to provocation and in the level of callous-unemotional traits in boys exhibiting different patterns of aggression. Eighty-five boys (ages 13–18) in a juvenile detention center played a competitive computer task against a hypothetical peer who provided low and high levels of provocation. Youth high on both self-reported reactive and proactive aggression showed different behavioral responses to provocation than youth high on only reactive aggression. Specifically, the combined group showed high levels of aggressive responses without any provocation, whereas the group high on reactive aggression showed an increase in ...


Procedural Preferences, Perceptions Of Fairness, And Compliance With Outcomes: A Study Of Alternatives To The Standard Adversary Trial Procedure, Norman Poythress Dec 2015

Procedural Preferences, Perceptions Of Fairness, And Compliance With Outcomes: A Study Of Alternatives To The Standard Adversary Trial Procedure, Norman Poythress

Norman Poythress

Mental health professionals (N=198) read a vignette describing malpractice case and were asked to imagine themselves in the role of defendant. Using a between-subjects design, each subject was offered two possible trial procedures for resolving the case, the standard adversary procedure (ADVERS) and one of five possible hybrid procedures. Using scales that juxtaposed these two procedures, subjects provided judgments on 12 procedural justice dimensions. A series of regression analyses examined the most important determinants of PREFERENCE judgments, FAIRNESS ratings, and ratings of imagined COMPLIANCE with trial outcomes. PREFERENCE raings were significantly influenced by perceived FAIRNESS of the procedures and ...


Legal, Ethical, And Methodological Considerations In The Internet-Based Study Of Child Pornography Offenders, James Ray, Eva Kimonis, Christine Donoghue Dec 2015

Legal, Ethical, And Methodological Considerations In The Internet-Based Study Of Child Pornography Offenders, James Ray, Eva Kimonis, Christine Donoghue

Eva Kimonis

With its ever-growing penetration of remote regions of the world, the Internet provides great opportunity for conducting research. Beyond clear advantages such as increased cost-effectiveness and efficiency in collecting large samples, Internet-based research has proven particularly useful in reaching hidden or marginalized populations who engage in illegal or deviant behaviors. However, this new medium for research raises important and complex legal, ethical, and methodological/technological issues that researchers must address, particularly when studying undetected criminal behaviors. The current paper chronicles various issues that were encountered in the implementation of an active Internet-based pilot research study of child pornography (CP) users ...


The Relationship Between Psychopathic Features, Violence And Treatment Outcome: The Comparison Of Three Youth Measures Of Psychopathic Features, Sarah Spain, Kevin Douglas, Norman Poythress, Monica Epstein Dec 2015

The Relationship Between Psychopathic Features, Violence And Treatment Outcome: The Comparison Of Three Youth Measures Of Psychopathic Features, Sarah Spain, Kevin Douglas, Norman Poythress, Monica Epstein

Norman Poythress

Few studies have compared self-report and clinician-administered measures of youth psychopathic features in juvenile-justice settings in terms of antisocial behavior and treatment indices. In a sample of 85 adjudicated delinquents, the predictive validities of the Antisocial Process Screening Device (APSD), the modified Childhood Psychopathy Scale (mCPS), and the Hare Psychopathy Checklist: Youth Version (PCL:YV) were tested. Three indices of institutional antisocial behavior (physical aggression; verbal aggression; administrative infractions) and two indices of treatment progress (time to treatment level promotion; whether treatment levels were dropped) were used as external correlates. The self-report measures (mCPS more so than APSD) were more ...


Procedural Justice In The Context Of Civil Commitment: An Analogue Study, Michelle Cascardi, Norman Poythress, Alicia Hall Dec 2015

Procedural Justice In The Context Of Civil Commitment: An Analogue Study, Michelle Cascardi, Norman Poythress, Alicia Hall

Norman Poythress

Procedural justice theory posits that the process by which disputes are resolved in¯uences perceptions of fairness and satisfaction with outcomes, even if the outcomes are unfavorable. Within the context of civil commitment, Tyler (1992) has suggested that enhancing respondents' perceptions of procedural justice (i.e., participation, dignity, and trust) during commitment proceedings might facilitate accommodation to an adverse judicial determination (i.e., commitment) and subsequently enhance therapeutic outcomes. The study reported here used videotapes of mock commitment hearings to examine whether patients committed for involuntary treatment are sensitive to procedural justice manipulations. Results suggest that patients are sensitive to ...


Heightened Emotional Reactivity And Proactive Aggression In Youth With Narcissistic Traits, Luna Munoz, Eva Kimonis, Charlene Strikleton, Paul Frick Dec 2015

Heightened Emotional Reactivity And Proactive Aggression In Youth With Narcissistic Traits, Luna Munoz, Eva Kimonis, Charlene Strikleton, Paul Frick

Eva Kimonis

The link between narcissism and aggression may reflect a pattern of emotional hyperarousal; however, the emotional substrates of narcissistic personality are not well understood. We assessed the relation between narcissism – one dimension of psychopathy-- and self-reported and laboratory measures of aggression in a detained sample of boys. Also, indices of emotion functioning were assessed: attentional bias to emotionally distressing pictures and psychophysiological measures. Results suggest that narcissistic individuals are proactively aggressive and show a pattern of heightened emotional arousal, compared with callous-unemotional youth who show reduced arousal.

Factor Structure And Correlates Of The Dissociative Experiences Scale In A Large Offender Sample, Mark Ruiz, Norman Poythress, Scott Lilienfeld, Kevin Douglas Dec 2015

Factor Structure And Correlates Of The Dissociative Experiences Scale In A Large Offender Sample, Mark Ruiz, Norman Poythress, Scott Lilienfeld, Kevin Douglas

Norman Poythress

The authors examined the psychometric properties, factor structure, and construct validity of the Dissociative Experiences Scale (DES) in a large offender sample (N = 1,515). Although the DES is widely used with community and clinical samples, minimal work has examined offender samples. Participants were administered self-report and interview measures, and a subsample was followed longitudinally to determine criminal and violent recidivism. The DES exhibited good psychometric properties, but an identified three-factor structure was of questionable replicability. Moreover, the DES factors displayed no evidence of differential correlates. DES total scores were correlated with trauma-related variables even after controlling for negative affectivity ...
