Dr. Stephanie L. Fulmer: The Interplay of Clinical and Forensic Psychology in an Adult Inpatient Psychiatric Hospital

Date/Time

Dec 3, 2019
06:00 PM until 07:00 PM

Description

Why do some people involved in the criminal justice system get referred to psychiatric hospitals rather than jails or prisons? What do the terms “competency to stand trial” or “not guilty by reason of insanity” actually mean? Dr. Stephanie Fulmer will discuss these topics, along with her expertise treating the needs of justice-involved individuals who experience serious mental illness.

Dr. Stephanie Fulmer, Psy.D., serves as the lead psychologist to the only female unit of a maximum-security forensic hospital in the state of New Jersey. Her education and training focuses on specialized psychological assessments, which are used to assist the courts in determining how best to treat individuals who suffer from serious mental illness within the criminal justice system.
