1. Presenter: Natalie Novick Brown, PhD &Anthony Wartnik, Judge (Retired)

    This course covers screening, forensic evaluation, and pre and post DSM-5 diagnosis, using
    the multi-disciplinary diagnostic process, including a proposed model standard for forensic assessment,
    and useful diagnostic tools. It will explore the relevance of prenatal alcohol exposure on cognition and across the criminal justice spectrum. Discussion includes impacts of fetal alcohol exposure on mental
    health, trouble with the law, inappropriate sexual behavior, and employment and living dependency issues.

    We will analyze Atkins v. Virginia, banning the death penalty for defendants with MR/ID, the problems
    presented in its application under DSM-4 with reference to the role of adaptive behavior deficits in MR/
    ID diagnosis, and projections of future post-Atkins case law due to changes in the DSM-5 definitions
    of ID and Neurodevelopmental prenatal alcohol exposure (ND-PAE) and Neurobehavioral Disorder
    Associated With Prenatal Alcohol Exposure.

    In addition, the course will identify high risk factors and secondary disabilities and their impacts in the
    context of executive and adaptive behavioral dysfunctions together with identification of some of the
    effective therapeutic, medication, and support system interventions.
