Compass Psychological Services also offer expertise in relation to young people and the Criminal Justice System. Whether a young person has been convicted of an offence or whether there are concerns that he or she is heading towards a pro-criminal lifestyle, a thorough assessment can help provide an estimate of the risk of further offending or more serious offending as well as a detailed formulation of the psychological factors underpinning the offending behaviour. Management and treatment recommendations are offered as part of the assessment report as well as any follow-up consultation that is required.
Common issues that are referred to Psychologists in respect of young offenders are:
Assessments involve meeting with the young person, family and relevant members of professional agencies involved. Depending on the young person’s ability to engage with the assessment process, a variety of assessment methods are used, including interview with the young person, family and professionals involved, psychometric assessment, play-based and other creative assessment techniques and analysis of historical documents. In addition, formal structured risk assessment tools are usually employed.
