Juvenile Justice
UH-CFP provides evaluations of
juveniles to inform disposition

The University of Houston Center for Forensic Psychology has an extensive history of providing services for children involved in the legal system. Such services include the evaluation of children involved in the juvenile justice system. UH-CFP provides a number of evaluation services for this population including:

  • Individual Mental Health Evaluations for Dispositional Decisions
  • Certification Evaluations
  • Risk Assessments

In concordance with UH-CFP’s academic and professional standards, evaluations rely heavily on state-of-the-art, empirically supported assessments and interviewing techniques. The most current literature and research in the field are utilized to design evaluations that are developmentally appropriate and address the specific questions relevant to each case.

UH-CFP holds itself to the highest standards of practice and emphasizes the need for comprehensive evaluations that address multiple domains. In this effort, we maintain our role as an objective third party tasked with providing the referring agent a comprehensive and impartial analysis of the relevant issues in each case.
