[No CEs] It has been a decade since the term clinical judgment and its use in conceptualizing a case and arriving at valid opinions entered the forensic rehabilitation literature and lexicon through the writings of Field, Choppa, Barros-Bailey, Neulicht, and Johnson. In the intervening period, the term has become hijacked to imply the lack of a methodological process through the sole experience of the practitioner instead of a determined process of decision-making.
By approaching clinical judgment from a comprehensive analysis of all forensics literature inclusive of all disciplines beyond rehabilitation, the definition of clinical judgment is not only clarified, but also the forensic practitioner receives a tool chest of resources to demonstrate an evidence-based approach and to educate those within the forensic context of how the practitioner applied a clinical judgment method in decision-making.
- List operational definitons of clinical judgment as applied to forensic practice regardless of disipline
- Interpret what is and is not clinical judgment
- Examine models identified in the literature related to data integration and decision making (clinical judgment) in forensics
- Demonstrate the use of models as applied to forensic rehabilitation
