Leavitt, M.Acc.,& Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:   Tarasoff I and II were landmark legal cases resulting from a psychiatrist's former patient killing a fellow university student after verbalizing threats in therapy months before (Simone & Fulero, 2005).  The resulting duty to warn and protect requirements can be difficult for mental health professionals (MHP) to navigate interstate, especially because there are no overarching federal regulations (Johnson et al., 2014). Studies have shown that MHPs erroneously thought they were informed about their state's duty to warn legislation and case law and used unstructured judgment to apply...

Law, B.A. & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  Feminist activists aspire to end intimate partner violence (IPV), of which women were and disproportionately remain victims (Stark, 2012). To realize this goal, policing emphasized individual incidents of dominance, force, and threats, using levels of physical assault to determine severity (Stark, 2012). Currently, responses to IPV in most countries and the U.S. are structured on what Stark (2007) refers to as the violent incident model (VIM). The VIM led to the U.S. Violence Against Women Act (1994) to protect victims and mitigate severe and...

Kromer & Kristine M. Jacquin Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:   Serial homicides comprise less than 1% of murders in the United States each year, yet an analysis of the antecedents is crucial to preventing these crimes (Federal Bureau of Investigation, 2016; Keatleyet al., 2021). Scientists and investigative units have debated the definition of what it means to be a serial killer.  Adjorloloand Chan (2014) identified three components that describe most serial killers:  Two or more forensically linked murders Themurders are committed by one person The killer’s primary purpose is personal satisfaction  While researchers have defined how to classify a serial killer compared...

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  False confessions have devastating impacts on the lives of diverse groups in our society (Meissner et al., 2015; Vick et al., 2021; Villar et al., 2013). Previous research shows that individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) have a higher rate of false confessions when compared to other societal groups (Frumkinet al., 2012; Schatz, 2018).    [/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 Cassidy C.

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:   It has long been established that eyewitness testimony is fraught with potential sources of error (Steblayet al., 2003; Steblayet al., 2011). •Contrary to the perception of law enforcement and jurors alike, confidence does not correlate with accuracy (Potter & Brewer, 1999). Nevertheless, beliefs about the relationship between confidence and accuracy of identifications can greatly influence juror decisions (Beaudry, 2015) and lead to injustice (Innocence Project, 2018). •Research has shown a number of factors that inflate eyewitness confidence, such as receiving feedback during the identification process, and delaying...

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...

Jenkins, B.S., & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D.  Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: Violent crimes are prevalent in the U.S. The violent crime rate was 398.5 per 100,000 people in 2020, just shy of the highest rate in the past decade, which occurred in 2010 (Federal Bureau of Investigation, 2021).  The prison system must enhance its rehabilitative aspect to reduce recidivism and combat violent crime. Dance movement therapy (DMT) has been implemented in some prison systems for rehabilitation and treatment. This poster examines DMT as a rehabilitation method to reduce recidivism.  [/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  Ariana S.

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.

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: Persons sixty-five years and older are the fastest growing category of firearm owners in the U.S. (Greene et al., 2007). The U.S. accounts for over half of the civilian gun owning population in the world (Karp, 2018): 42% live in gun household (Igielnik, 2017). 38% of gun owners say there is a loaded and accessible gun available in the home (Igielnik, 2017). Over 70% of gun owners feel gun ownership is essential to their right to freedom (Igielnik, 2017). Older adults with firearms are at increased risk of suicide...
