Abstract

Psychological assessment of juveniles for waiver to adult criminal courts requires systematic evaluation of dangerousness, sophistication-maturity, and amenability to treatment. Despite their importance to the evaluation of juveniles, little is known about the criteria that constitute these 3 constructs. This study clarifies the constructs of dangerousness, sophistication-maturity, and amenability to treatment that typically guide juvenile transfers. Psychologists (n = 244) from the Clinical Child Psychology Division of the American Psychological Association rated the prototypicality of each construct. Factor analyses of the domains for each of the 3 constructs are reviewed. In addition, forensic diplomates from the American Board of Professional Psychology (n = 75) provided prototypical ratings of juveniles whomthey evaluated and who were subsequently transferred to adult court. Results indicate that these youth were judged as dangerous, criminally sophisticated, and difficult to treat. The interpretation of the results may facilitate evaluations by clinical child and forensic psychologists on juvenile waivers and help to shape policy on this issue.
