Chapter 2 discusses forensic mental health concepts. General legal guidelines must be translated into more specific psycholegal concepts that can assist the examiner in deciding what data to obtain and how to interpret it so that evaluations are legally relevant. This chapter offers an overview of psychological and psycholegal concepts that can assist the examiner in this regard when evaluating juveniles in CST cases. This includes conceptualizing the relevant capacities, predicate requirements, and defining maturity and immaturity.
