Guided response: your initial post should be at least 300 words in length.

Research continues to substantiate the increase of positive outcomes when psychological issues are identified early (in childhood or adolescence) and interventions are instituted at that time rather than when an individual has researched adulthood. Chapter 13 in Bartol & Bartol (2019) discusses the concept of multisystemic therapy for antisocial juveniles. Recognizing that some mental disorders cannot be properly identified until early adulthood, there are many, including parents, who suggest this is inappropriate and an unreasonable intrusion into parents’ rights and responsibilities in raising their children.
Guided Response: Your initial post should be at least 300 words in length. Support your observations with examples from the required materials and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two or your colleagues’ posts by Day 7. Discuss therapeutic interventions for antisocial juveniles; the successes and the shortcomings. Include the short–term and long–term impacts of such therapies and the impacts of no intervention. Does society have a responsibility to these youth and to society to identify and intervene in these emotional/psychological areas? Do you agree with your peer’s views? Why, or why not? Continue to monitor the discussion forum until 5:00 p.m. (Mountain Time) on Day 7, and respond with robust dialogue to anyone who replies to your initial post

Psychological Treatment in Correctional Settings
This week’s reading assignments include chapters relating to the provision of psychological treatments in correctional settings. Chapter 12 discusses the findings of Boothby & Clements (2000) survey of psychologists working in state and federal correctional facilities across the U.S. Increasingly, the prison populations reflect a high number of inmates suffering from identified mental illnesses. This presents issues for corrections personnel who are responsible for the safety of prisoners as well as the safety of staff. The goals of the correctional psychological service providers may not be consistent with the overall goals of the institution. The mental health status of offenders impacts staffing considerations, both in number and in skills, of incarceration facilities. Large populations of inmates with mental health issues can impact the stress levels of staff, which can influence their job performance as well as their interpersonal relationships.
Address the following points in your paper
Discuss the impacts of the psychological make–up of offenders has on the functional responsibilities of incarceration facilities.
Discuss how the biases and assumptions of correctional service providers influence their assessment of and interaction with these offenders.
Explain your findings within the continuing context of the endogenous and exogenous theories of criminal behavior and the analysis of how our biases and assumptions influence our assessments of individuals.
Correlate your findings to the cultural-based behavior patterns specific to segments of the population with an evaluation of the potential impact and intervention strategies utilized to reduce the impact of stress on law enforcement personnel.

Begin by conducting a search in the CSU Online Library, or equivalent academic search engine, to locate one peer-reviewed journal about the development of criminal behavior. This article can focus on etiology of criminal behaviors from childhood to adulthood and can focus on any number of factors that may have contributed to individual criminality. Although not required, consider using the Academic Search Ultimate database within the library to begin your search. Consider the following items listed:
Introduce the article, authors, and summarize the main points of the article.
Identify elements in the article that contribute to understanding the relationship between personality factors and the likelihood of developing criminal behavior, such as personality factors, diversity factors, and environmental factors.
List the strengths and limitations of the research presented, being mindful of methodology, participant size, limited geographical region of student, etc.
Explain whether or not this article illustrates the impact of culture and diversity, including race and ethnicity, on the development of risk factors.
Your article critique should be a minimum of two pages, not counting the title or reference pages. Adhere to APA Style when creating citations and references for this assignment. APA formatting, however, is not necessary.

Adult criminal court
Civil court
Correctional psychology
Minors in the legal system

Research opportunities range anywhere from helping improve interrogation techniques to evaluating effectiveness of treatment programs. Applied work involves consultation, expert witness testimony, conducting trainings, and providing other services within corrections or for the court.
To Prepare

Next, search a government database and/or USAJOBS (https://www.usajobs.gov/) to identify some possible job opportunities.
Note: You will need to seek a job that is a non-clinical psychology position (e.g., program intelligence or operational analysts, corrections, law enforcement, trial consultant, victim specialists, risk or loss prevention, etc.).
Post the following:
Description of one subspecialty of forensic psychology that interests you
Explanation of why this subspecialty of interests you personally and professionally
Description, including the requirements, of three or more job opportunities available in the subspecialty you selected
Explanation of which career, within the subspecialty you selected, most appeals to you and why
Note: Your posts should be substantial (2–4 paragraphs), supported with scholarly evidence from your research and/or the Learning Resources, and properly cited using APA style. Personal anecdotes are acceptable within meaningful responses but cannot stand alone as a response.

All of the evidence we discussed would be considered “circumstantial evidence” in a court proceeding.
If you were presented a case (as a jury member) where there was no direct evidence (DNA, fingerprints), but there was a number of pieces of criminalistic evidence (hairs, fibers, ballistic evidence, glass, and paint), would you be able to declare a suspect as being guilty of the crime? Explain why.
