Chapter 3 explores empirical foundations and limits. The use of research data by examiners to inform their theories and practices increases the accuracy of evaluations and helps the courts to feel more confident about the opinions being offered. To meet practice standards, examiners must consider the empirical research when structuring their evaluations and when interpreting the results. This chapter reviews research findings on the practices of forensic examiners when conducting juvenile CST evaluations, youth whom they evaluate, methods they use, the conclusions they reach, and incompetence remediation issues that they must resolve.
