Therapeutic Risk Typologies Case scenario 5 The Daubert standard is used by the court to verify the validity of expert witness testimony. For the expert testimony to be acceptable, it has to be based on the approved scientific methodology and must be testable. In addition, it must have a known error rate and be acceptable to a wide range of peers. In Ms. Z’s assessment on child abuse, the relevant scales were used to ascertain the variables used to make a final deduction. As such, the data obtained was very much reliable. The other scientific models were incorporated into the study to ensure that the obtained data is valid and reliable. Interview Information Case scenario 5 entails the psychological assessment on Ms. Z to determine her potential to child abuse. While attending the assessment, she was well groomed as noted from her appropriate dressing, which indicated her normal mental status. The assessment noted her intertextual functionality to be above average, and that she suffered from anxious moods. She struggled sleeping due to fear in the night. It was also noted that she exhibited a history of truancy and her involvement in the child protection services because of neglect and violence towards her child. She was apparently shot after she had a confrontation with her ex-boyfriend outside a restaurant she worked at.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
