Accuracy of Psychologists' Short-Term Predictions of Future Criminal Behavior among Juveniles.
Hagan, Michael P.; King, Sandra L.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v25 n1-2 p129-41 1997
Analyzed two prison psychologists' accuracy of predictions of criminality to see how reliably such predictions could be made. Results indicate that the psychologists, using clinical judgment alone, accurately identified a subpopulation significantly more likely to engage in future acts of violence within a one-year follow-up period.
