Conceptualizing and Applying Developmental Immaturity in Juvenile Competence Evaluations

Presented by Ivan Kruh, PhD

This self-paced training on Conceptualizing and Applying Developmental Immaturity in Juvenile Competence Evaluations is presented by Ivan Kruh, PhD.

State statutes increasingly recognize developmental immaturity as a basis for youth in juvenile court to be found incompetent. Participants learn key developmental concepts for clarity about relevant developmental issues, with a focus upon cognitive and psychosocial immaturity. The training program addresses how developmental immaturity impacts the interview process with practice interviewing in ways that accommodate various developmental profiles.
