The team consists of a psychologist, intake personnel, and clinicians who synthesize information from collateral sources, psychological testing, and family interviews. The court ordered assessment helps by giving more information on the youth’s psychological state and suggests a plan that may prevent continued conflicts with the law. During the period of assessment, youth will be asked to attend clinical interview sessions to discuss their lives and potential areas of need. These findings are then summarized in a brief report which is provided to the Judge, the Crown Attorney, and Defence Counsel where youth will have the opportunity to discuss the contents of the report. Whenever possible, the team supports plans and recommendations developed with the young person and their family.
