This chapter begins with a focus on those elements that characterize the nature of the forensic psychologist’s relationship to examinees, emphasizing the different orientation required relative to therapeutic work. It then moves on to discuss issues of cultural diversity that specifically impact forensic evaluations, followed by a description of the interpersonal dynamics that forensic psychologists have with other parties, including collateral informants, attorneys, and the trier of fact (judge or jury).
