Wemette & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  Cultural differences between police officers and the communities in which they serve and protect are increasingly receiving more scrutiny. Both uniformed officers and police leadership have identified cultural awareness and related available training as barriers to serving their communities (Fletcher et al., 2019: Holohan, 2019). Cultural competence is defined by the achievement of skills, attitudes, values, and beliefs which are apparent in individuals and organizations to help navigate unique characteristics among diverse populations.  Cultural humility places more emphasis on attitudes and approaches of openness, self-reflection, mutual understanding, and...

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: African American Vernacular English (AAVE) is most associated with African Americans from low socioeconomic status (SES) backgrounds. African Americans who use AAVE are often identified as less reliable, credible, competent, lower intelligence, and lower class. All qualities are frequently associated with criminal behavior according to stereotypes others embrace and perpetuated by media (Kurinec & Weaver III, 2019). The use of AAVE can hinder the ability to receive a fair trial due to (1) stereotypes and biases of the jurors and court professionals and (2) the inability of...

JACQUIN PH.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: People of a certain age often face age-based biases. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines ageism as the stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination towards people based on age (Officer & de la Fuente-Núñez, 2018). Older persons are more likely to be perceived as irrelevant or incompetent. When people conduct themselves based on their ageist assumption and attitude, they tend to commit elder abuse.   [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1591214003976{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Presented by GARY TSENG M.S. & KRISTINE M.

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: At least 40% of all working women will experience some form of sexual harassment, yet only 11% of those harassed will ever file a complaint, and less than 1% will ever sue and reach the courts (Cassino & Bensen-Cassino, 2019; Feldblum & Lipnic, 2016; Mani, 2013). Victims who file a sexual harassment legal complaint have a high probability of retraumatization due to a legal system that often provokes symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) through aggressive argument, selective presentation of the facts, and psychological attack...

Jenkins, B.S., & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D.  Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:   One of the leading causes of death in the world is suicide.  Psychological autopsies have served as a method for medical examiners, law enforcement, mental health professionals, and researchers to understand the cause and mode of an individual's death with the help of information gathered by close friends and family, diaries, and a suicide note if available.  Although psychological autopsies provide much insight into the events that led to death, there are flaws in the standardization and methodology of psychological autopsies.  This poster examines the current methods...

Jacquin Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  Cultural bias is a common issue in forensic and neuropsychological tests. Several studies have shown how cultural bias can affect the validity and reliability of these tests. The purpose of this presentation is to increase awareness of cultural bias in tests and identify ways in which cultural bias can be mitigated in forensic and neuropsychological testing.

Thomason, M.S., & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D.  Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: Racism and inequality have been experienced by Asians since their arrival to the United States in the mid mid-1800s (Yung et al., 2006). Specific government acts in the United States, such as the Chinese Exclusionary Act of 1861 and the Gentleman’s Agreement of 1908 restricted immigration and citizenship of Asians (FonerFoner& Garraty , 2021; Kil , 2012). U.S. conflicts with Asian nations during WWII, the Korean War, and Vietnam War stigmatized Asian Americans as being the perpetual foreigners unable to fully...

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: • Federal policies and laws have continuously been known to weaken families, communities, and organizations of Indigenous people (Olson-Pitawanakwat& Baskin, 2020). An example of legislation that is harmful for Indigenous populations is the Indian Act of 1876.  In North America, tribal nations are challenged by a crisis that affects the most vulnerable citizens in their communities, Indigenous women and children.  The movement for Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) addresses violence against Indigenous women as an extension of colonization, discrimination, and historical trauma...
