Example text

The theoretical concept of "psychological parent" (Goldstein, Freud, & Solnit, 1973) has been adopted in some jurisdictions as an important dimension from a legal perspective; yet several empirical studies have obtained results that question its usefulness as a concept applied to decisions about the best interests of children (see Chapter 7; also Reppucci, 1984). Both theoretical and empirical considerations suggest the importance of a parent's knowledge or capacity for manifesting consistent, contingency-based reinforcement for a child's behaviors; yet this parenting skill receives little or no reference in the body of laws and legal writings that guide or control judicial child custody decisions (Chapter 7).

But has the field actually attained that goal? Let us return to the criticisms of the 1980s, repeating them for those who are unfamiliar with that era, then examine the degree to which we have addressed them. IGNORANCE AND IRRELEVANCE One of the most pressing problems in the history of the courts' use of mental health experts was examiners' failure to provide testimony that was relevant for the law's concerns in legal competence cases. Complaints pointed to the fact that many examiners seemed to be ignorant of the nature of the legal inquiry.

A second form of criticism regarding credibility focuses on examiners' use of theory or "informed speculation" in courtroom testimony. Theories about human nature are an indispensable part of professional practice in the laboratory or clinic. A good theory uses existing information about a person to provide tentative explanations for the person's behavior or to guide speculation about future behavior. The value of these speculations, however, is not known until more data are collected in order to test the theoretical proposition.
