Records reviews are one of the four essential categories of data sources for a quality forensic mental health evaluation, yet few mental health professionals have ever been formally trained on how to conduct them.  Evaluators often ask NBFE questions about these reviews, such as:

  • What is a records review?
  • How to I determine what records to obtain?
  • What am I looking for?
  • How do I report what I find?
Using real case examples, this 1-hour webinar was designed to provide guidance on these questions.

Learning Objectives

  1. Define "records review" in the context of forensic mental health evaluation and summarize what ethical codes and practice guidelines say about them.
  2. List some of the most common types of records that should be reviewed during the evaluation process.
  3. Communicate pertinent information from records review in a forensic evaluation report.
