Forensic Psychology has seen a recent surge in interest thanks to the popularity of shows like Criminal Minds and Law & Order: Criminal Intent. Join the Columbus Science Pub this December to hear from two forensic psychologists working in Columbus, Dr. Meredith Veltri and Dr. Terry Kukor. They will be sharing how their work integrates psychology with an understanding of the legal system to provide expert opinions to the Court on cases involving legal questions such as competency to stand trail and insanity. They will walk us through how they use principles of critical thinking and scientific inquiry to gather and interpret clinical data relevant to legal questions. To better pull back the curtain that typically shrouds forensic mental health assessment, their presentation will include a step-by-step analysis of a fictitious case of claimed insanity.
