These bills criminalizing people "rested on the theory that drug use is voluntary and controllable, thus can be prevented and stopped through harsh punishment" (Earnshaw, 2020). We now know that addiction is a mental illness that is out of the person's control and it does not discriminate, therefore, the current punishments for drug related charges will not yield their intended outcomes.

Woods, M.S., Stephanie A. Olson, Ph.D., & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D.  Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:   Individuals who perform acts of physical aggression are committing crimes and are at risk to acquire criminal charges. Prior research suggests that adults who lack prosocial ways to communicate their emotions use physical aggression as a way to solve problems or express anger (Barratt et al., 1997; Mathias & Stanford, 1999).  Additionally, poor interpersonal skills were found to be consistent with physical and reactive aggression (Hart & Ostrov, 2013).  Physical reactive aggression largely accounts for future violence risk (Matlasz et al., 2020).  There is...

Woods, M.S., Stephanie A. Olson, Ph.D., & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D.  Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  Prior research suggests there is a relationship between psychopathic traits and criminality, including criminal attitudes/thinking (Chu et al., 2014; Mandracchiaet al., 2015), violence (Chu et al., 2014) and other antisocial behavior (Hare, 2003), as well as criminal associates (Chu et al., 2014; Sherrettset al., 2016), and entitlement (Chu et al., 2014).  •However, Boccioand Beaver (2018) found that psychopathic personality traits were only associated with violent behavior, and not associated with peer socialization or criminal attitudes when taking genetics into account.  •There is...

Wemette & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: Public safety personnel, including police officers, are more likely to encounter psychologically traumatic events on the job, leading to depression, anxiety, burnout, and PTSD (Arbleet al., 2017; Di Nota et al., 2021). In addition to the physically demanding nature of their work, when asked to do what is right, police officers may face moral issues resulting in moral distress or moral injury (Papazoglouet al., 2020).  Because burnout, moral injury, and PTSD may appear similar and have severe consequences, it is critical to understand the relationship between the...

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.

Thomason, M.S., Jeffrey Duong, M.A., & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  Multisystemic therapy (MST) is an effective method for reducing recidivism rates and improving overall mental health of juvenile sexual offenders (Henggeler, 2001). MST was developed as a comprehensive treatment model targeting juveniles who presented criminal behaviors ranging from drug abuse, violence, and sexual assault (Henggeler, 2008). MST incorporates caregivers into treatment to facilitate acceptance of the juvenile’s offending behavior, resulting in increased knowledge, communication, and the removal of barriers in the adolescent’s relationships (Borduin et al., 2009).   [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1591214003976{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}"][vc_column...

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: Of the two million adolescents and children arrested each year in the United States, 65-70% have mental health disorders (National Conference of State Legislatures, 2011). The general theory of crime by Gottfredson and Hirschi argues that crime is a function of low self-control and criminal opportunity, and some research supports this point (Armstrong et al., 2020; Beaver et al., 2010; Palumbo, 1992; Shoepfer et al., 2019).

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...
