Extractions: Home Violence Aging Healthy Adolescents Project ... Publications Professional, Ethical, and Legal Issues Concerning Interpersonal Violence, Maltreatment, and Related Trauma A report of the ad hoc Committee on Legal and Ethical Issues in the Treatment of Interpersonal Violence Table of Contents Introduction Section IV: Collateral Issues Section I: Professional roles Section V: Forensic Psychology ... Section III: Treatment This introduction provides a brief review of the issues faced by psychologists working in the areas of interpersonal violence. The problem includes the perception of a harassing backlash against psychologists who have been involved in interpersonal violence cases and issues. In particular, some psychologists who work with child or elder maltreatment, spousal / partner battering, and adults who recall memories of childhood abuse have been targets or personal and organized harassment. The forms of harassment have included personal threats and picketing of offices, media campaigns, as well as ethic and licensing board complaints and lawsuits. Psychologists who find themselves subjected to a nuisance or unsubstantiated grievance may experience vulnerability, loneliness, PTSD symptoms, or professional and financial consequences. They often experience isolation and secondary traumatization. Our committee was particularly concerned with various organized efforts developed to help alleged perpetrators of interpersonal violence and others pursue board actions, ethics complaints and nuisance lawsuits against psychologists who have served as therapist, forensic evaluator, expert witness, or client advocate for victims of interpersonal violence. Templates to file such complaints have been developed by various groups. In addition, our committee was concerned about the negative perceptions portrayed in the media and among consumers about psychologists and psychotherapy. Such perceptions could have far reaching implications for policy and practice. For example, malpractice insurance carriers may attempt to deny converge to psychologists working with clients who have experienced various forms of interpersonal violence.
Extractions: PsycVIDEO Searching PsycINFO for Criminal Justice Topics Psychology has much to offer the criminal justice field. One important topic is law enforcement personnel, including selection, training, personality, suitability for the field, occupational stress and satisfaction, and coping strategies. Crime prevention is another important covered topic, as is the imprisonment and rehabilitation of offenders, including effects of long incarceration and factors affecting recidivism rates.

Extractions: Forensic science is the use of science in the service of the law. Sciences used in forensics include any discipline that can aid in the collection, preservation and analysis of evidence such as chemistry (for the identification of explosives), engineering (for examination of structural design) or biology (for DNA identification or matching). A forensic scientist is expert in any technical field and can provide an analysis of the evidence, witness testimony on examination results, technical support and even training in his or her specialized area. Why is Forensic Science important? Analysis of forensic evidence is used in the investigation and prosecution of civil and criminal proceedings. Often, it can help to establish the guilt or innocence of possible suspects. Forensic evidence is also used to link crimes that are thought to be related to one another. For example, DNA evidence can link one offender to several different crimes or crime scenes (or exonerate the accused). Linking crimes helps law enforcement authorities to narrow the range of possible suspects and to establish patterns of for crimes, which are useful in identifying and prosecuting suspects.

Extractions: WASHINGTON, June 7 - A team of administration lawyers concluded in a March 2003 legal memorandum that President Bush was not bound by either an international treaty prohibiting torture or by a federal anti-torture law because he had the authority as commander in chief to approve any technique needed to protect the nation's security. "In order to respect the president's inherent constitutional authority to manage a military campaign," the lawyers wrote in the 56-page confidential memorandum, the prohibition against torture "must be construed as inapplicable to interrogation undertaken pursuant to his commander-in-chief authority."

Extractions: for free legal advice on BDSM issues by Frederick McDermott The information which follows was donated to gloria-brame.com in 1998 by Rumpoule as a special service to the SM/fetish communities. Rumpoule is no longer accepting queries or email: this page offers some of his legal opinions on BDSM issues important to us all. I have been a criminal defense lawyer for over twenty years. I've also been in the leather lifestyle for nearly twenty-five years. I am submissive to women as a preferred form of sexuality and lifestyle. I decided I wanted to give something back to people who, like me, have a different kind sexuality or lifestyle by learning about how the law affects us. I want to collect and pass that information on to the community's members by giving lectures and acting as a resource. As you read this, you may find it to be a little frightening. Please remember that, in a legal sense just as in health considerations, there is no such thing as "safe sex." There is however, with education, "safer sex." Just as in the health arena, education and caution can help to avoid frightening results. So be aware of what you are doing, act responsibly, and you will find you can avoid that which you may fear. Please keep in mind that there are 50 states, the District of Columbia and the United States. Federal laws generally do not have much impact. In fact, J. Edgar Hoover once said, "I regret to say that we of the FBI are powerless to act in cases of oral-genital intimacy, unless it has in some way obstructed interstate commerce."
Remarks Of Jonathan Hecht in the Chinese government s use of the legal system to as paradoxical as it may seem, law is simultaneously human rights and the closely related issues of the http://www.cecc.gov/pages/hearings/041102/hecht.php
Extractions: Thank you Senator Baucus, Congressman Bereuter, and the other members of the Commission for inviting me to speak here today. As Congress recognized in establishing this Commission, it is vitally important that China make progress on human rights. This is important first and foremost for Chinese themselves, who have long lived under political systems that denied them fundamental freedoms and are now navigating a difficult transition toward a market economy and, hopefully, a more open society. But it is also important for the rest of the world. China's emergence as a global power is one of the most important geopolitical events of our lifetimes. It is essential that the China that emerges from this process is one that respects individual liberties and its internationally binding commitments on human rights. Progress on human rights in China is also vital to the United States. Our relationship with China is one of our most important bilateral relationships. It cannot be truly cooperative until the human rights situation in China improves. These new laws contain serious flaws in conception and face many obstacles in implementation. Reformers within China are working to highlight these problems and to press for further change. In the meantime, Chinese themselves are making increasing use their expanded legal system. The number of cases in the Chinese courts, including successful suits against the state, has risen dramatically in the last decade. In addition, new groups have emerged to advocate for improved legal protection of rights, often through legal aid centers for women's rights or administrative litigation or the environment. As this shows, legal reform and other developments in China are creating increased rights consciousness and higher expectations for the legal system. This is a very important trend, for law should not only foster respect for human rights. It should also be a means by which individuals can demand respect for human rights.

Extractions: "What do these facts prove?" a lawyer asked. "Nothing," I said. "The facts you've listed don't demonstrate anything." There was a moment of silence, and I thought about the $150 an hour I was being paid, knowing that I'd probably blown my chances for a significant role in the case. One of the two other experts in the room, a Harvard economist, spoke up. Pointing at one of the assertions, he made a statement that had nothing to do with it and told the lawyers that what was written on the board could be used to prove their case. The meeting adjourned, and I headed to the airport to fly home to California. Over the next several months, a few small assignments from the D.C. law firm came my way, but nothing substantial, nothing that would put me on the witness stand. I had answered incorrectly. Every day, in courtrooms across the country, economists, statisticians, engineers, doctors, and psychologists raise their right hand and swear to tell the truth. Expert witnesses are used in all types of cases: Economists testify on the value of life and limb in wrongful-death cases; physicians identify the mistakes of their colleagues in medical malpractice suits. Experts are also used in legislative hearings and in administrative proceedings, in which administrative law judges or political appointees interpret government regulations about a host of issues, including worker safety, water quality, and electricity rates. And experts are more visible than ever on television, ready at a moment's notice to explain how quickly smallpox spreads or to enumerate the capabilities of the A-10 Warthog.

Extractions: SLOPPING OUT: SCOTTISH EXECUTIVE GETS MORE TIME The Court of Session (Lords Cullen, Hamilton and Menzies) granted the Scottish Executive an extension of time on 9 June 2004 to appeal the decision in Napier v Scottish Ministers 2004 GWD 14-316 that the practice of slopping out in certain Scottish prisons was inhuman and degrading treatment contrary to Article 3 of the ECHR. The usual deadline of 21 days from the date of the decision had been missed (see No 361). Neil Brailsford QC for the Executive had explained, apparently at some length, that a senior clerk in the Lord Advocates Department had been tasked with lodging the papers on the day of the deadline, but had gone on a training course and asked her deputy to do it for her. Her deputy had tried, but she did not have all the necessary documents with her, so court officials would not accept the submission. The clerk did not phone to arrange for the paperwork to be delivered, but also did not tell anyone else in the Executive what had happened. The Court accepted that the failure was inadvertent, and that the appeal should be allowed to go ahead.
