Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: Domestic violence has become a serious social issue that plagues society and has gained increased attention across the nation. In the United States, 1.3 million women are victims of maleperpetrated intimate partner violence annually (Terrance et al., 2014). Furthermore, one in five women has reported being physically assaulted by a male partner (Plumm & Terrance, 2009). As domestic violence escalates, it can result in a partner taking violent and sometimes lethal action. Research suggest that 50% to 85% of all homicides committed by women are reported to be done...

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: The United States has more people incarcerated than any other country in the world and a significant number of the incarcerated are individuals with mental illness (Al-Rousan et al., 2017). Correctional facilities house ten times more individuals with serious mental illness than state mental hospitals (Al- Rousan et al., 2017). Selzer (2005) asserts that a significant number of individuals with mental illness are arrested for minor offenses and suggests that offenders participate in diversion programs instead of being taken to jail. Animal hoarders are a group of individuals...

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (2022), approximately 618,000 children were the victims of child abuse and neglect and 1,750 children died from abuse and neglect in 2020. Although data shows that biological parents are the main perpetrators of child abuse and neglect, a family structure composed of a single parent and nonbiological partner are also associated with increased risk. In 2020, there were 17,768 (3.8 percent) cases of abuse and neglect where the perpetrator was identified as the unmarried partner of a...

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...

Dorsey, M.S., & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: A psychological autopsy is performed when the manner of death is inconclusive. Forensic psychologists work in tandem with medical examiners to determine cause of death by reviewing (a) medical records, (b) life events, and (c) relevant interviews (Annon et al., 1995). ❖ Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death and is a growing health concern (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2021).

Cox, M.S., & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  First responders encounter incidents that much of the public will never see.  These first responders (police, fire, EMS, corrections, dispatch) experience these situations consistently and frequently throughout their careers and often live their lives as if nothing unusual has occurred.  Occurrences of mass trauma or destruction that the responders encounter may be referred to as critical incidents.  With first responders regularly encountering such situations, we must ensure they are receiving appropriate care so they remain mentally strong.  One resource to assist in after care...

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: When asylum seekers arrive in the United States, they are detained until they can be seen by an immigration official or a judge (Meiland, 2019). Then, the decision of that person’s future livelihood rests on the discretion of one person’s interpretation of the law and of the individual’s story, often resulting in disparities.  Research suggests that the disparities in the asylum-seeking system are based on individual interpretations and biases about the asylum seeker.

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: The number of sexual assault victims in the US is staggering.  •The National Sexual Violence Resource Center (NSVRC; 2018) found that 43.6% of women and 24.8% of men have experienced sexual violence, including “rape, being made to penetrate someone else, sexual coercion, and/or unwanted sexual contact” in their lifetime (pp. 2-3).   •However, fewer incidents are reported (23.0%) and the number of accused found guilty (5%) is even lower (NSVRC, 2015).  •These statistics exemplify the importance of examining why this happens.  [/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  Kasey Connors-Beron, M.S.,...
