Dr. Casey Mangnall is here to talk with me about the core features and nuances of forensic assessment when compared to traditional outpatient assessment (or “therapeutic evaluation”). This is a wide-ranging conversation. We start with major differences between forensic and outpatient assessment, then move to a more detailed discussion of effort testing among individuals with suspected intellectual disability. Casey and I also chat about the value of standardized testing in forensic settings, along with strategies for gathering collateral data and records.

About Dr. Casey Mangnall
Dr. Casey Mangnall received her doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Denver. Completed her predoctoral internship at the Utah State Hospital, where she did her first deep dive into forensics. Was instantly obsessed with forensic psychology, so she went on to complete a postdoctoral fellowship in forensic psychology at the Utah State Hospital. She has received training in conducting a variety of forensic evaluations, including competency to proceed, mental state evaluations (e.g., not guilty by reason of insanity), violence risk assessments, and psychosexual evaluations. She also runs a private practice offering a blend of clinical and forensic evaluations, including both criminal and civil forensic evaluations (e.g., personal injury, parental fitness). While she’s passionate about psychological evaluations, she also has many interests outside of her profession, which primarily include being active outdoors; She once walked 2,660 miles from Mexico to Canada!
