Psychosexual Evaluations Dr. Vincent at ForenPsych Consulting and Assessment Services L.L.C. offers objective, comprehensive, and thorough evaluations for individuals.
Psychosexual evaluations requires the forensic examiner to look for risk factors by reviewing materials relevant to the offenses such as: statements to the police, previous psychological evaluations, witness accounts of his/her behavior, and past criminal record.
Psychological testing include assessments such as the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory – Second Edition (MMPI-2) and the Personality Assessment Inventory (PAI). Dr. Vincent’s psychosexual evaluations contains a social history, mental status examination and a detailed personality make-up of the individual. Future risk assessment includes the use of empirically validated actuarial instruments (i.e., Static-99R, Static-2002R), the Stable-2007, Acute-2007, application of additional research based risk and protective factors to sexually reoffend, and a clinical interview are also utilized.
