Sample text

It cannot be answered without applying personal values or one's sense of what is just and right. When mental health professionals testify in court as experts, the area of expertise for which they are qualified is scientific and clinical, not as an arbiter of moral and social values. Therefore, these earlier texts argued, a clinician's offer of an opinion about an examinee's competence or incompetence is an inappropriate intrusion into the role of the legal fact finder. What has happened to this issue in the ensuing 15 years?

28 CHAPTER 2 Given such conflicting criteria, which criterion should an examiner employ when deciding what functional abilities to assess in relation to the context of a legal competence? One could argue that legal criteria must take precedent: that the competence is defined by law, and that other criteria, therefore, do not have authority to define the nature of the legal competence. On the other hand, one could argue that psychological theory and empirical research should take precedent in deciding which functional abilities are relevant for legal competencies.

The model must be consistent with, and must promote, the scientific, empirical and ethical standards of mental health professionals' disciplines. The intention to develop assessments based on an analysis of the law's view of legal competencies does not concede that the law "knows more" about human capacities than do mental health professionals. To the contrary, assessments should make use of the special expertise of mental health professionals that qualifies them to enlighten legal decision makers.
