Richard Frederick, Ph.D.
Services to Attorneys
I understand psychological assessment. I am thoroughly familiar with a broad range of psychological and neuropsychological tests and the literature that supports (or does not support) the use of these tests, and I am thoroughly experienced in conducting, reporting, and reviewing psychological assessments. I have testified on issues pertaining to appropriate test selection, test practices, and test interpretation in many jurisdictions and contexts. For almost 20 years, I have provided full-day workshops to psychologists on issues in forensic psychologist assessment.
Services provided to attorneys:
Review mental health reports for reliability, validity, and fairness.
Review “raw test data” for scoring errors, miscalculations, and mischaracterization of scores.
Review videos of actual testing sessions.
I am thoroughly familiar with all of these documents that pertain to how assessments should be accomplished.
