Description

 

You are a forensic  psychologist working with Forensic Consultants, Inc. An attorney is using your  services as a consultant in a case. During a meeting with the attorney, the  attorney tells you that the client, while undergoing police interrogation,  confessed to murder. When the attorney asked the client, the client reported to  being not guilty.
            As you conduct a  preliminary investigation, draw up a plan on how you will assist your the  attorney with this case. The plan should answer the following questions posed  by the attorney:

  1. What specific factors about police       interrogative tactics do you think will be important to the defense       strategy? Discuss interrogation tactics that lead to false confession,       specifying at least two examples and explain the reason they are       considered coercive. Include information about how this would look in an       actual interrogation and how the client experienced this behavior.
  2. Will you look for any specific       personality characteristics in the client? What are they and why will they       help or hurt your case? Are issues of competency going to come up? Discuss       information about what types of people are more at risk with coercive       interrogation tactics. Include at least one research study that has       demonstrated this risk.
  3. What type of personality assessment       instrument will you want to use to either identify or rule out the       characteristics listed in question 2? Be specific and support your answer:       Identify at least one psychological test that can be used and include       information on why it would be useful in determining whether a person was       vulnerable.

Based on the  client's response to police interrogation, how should you conduct your  interview? Specifically, what should you avoid when attempting to gather  accurate information from the client?

Create a presentation  to give to the attorney. You will need to explain each of your arguments. You  should expect to have 30 minutes to present your arguments. You  should include detailed speaker notes to assist in your presentation. Please  make sure to have at least 12 slides for review besides a title slide and a  References slide. Each  slide should be thoroughly referenced and cited based in psychological  research, using APA formatting. Follow the
