However, to our knowledge, no studies have examined the clinical differences between subgroups of clients with different perceptions of the intents of their CH. In order to better understand the risk for compliance with CH, our objectives were 1) to compare sociodemogr...

Narrative Enhancement and Cognitive Therapy (NECT) is a structured, group-based approach which targets the effects of self-stigma. A randomized-controlled trial was conducted to examine the efficacy of NECT.

AbstractThis study used a mixed-methods approach to investigate stigma experiences and self-concepts of individuals with both mental illness and criminal histories. The full sample of participants completed self-report measures of self-concept related to mental illness, race, and criminal history, and a brief qualitative self-concept measure. A subsample of participants completed semi-structured interviews, which were analyzed for content domains. Analyses suggested that several aspects of self-...

ABSTRACTApproximately seven percent of all police calls involve persons with mental illness (Deane, Steadman, Borum, Veysey, & Morrissey, 1999).

There are concerns that if neuroscientific deception detection evidence becomes admissible in court, jurors may weigh it inappropriately. We investigated whether mock jurors were influenced more by electrophysiological than behavioral evidence that a defendant in a criminal trial was lying. Participants’ perceptions of evidence quality predicted verdict choice, and quality ratings were higher for neuroscientific than for behavioral evidence. However, both types of evidence increased guilty verdi...
