The psychological corporation of James A. Reavis, Psy.D. is dedicated to forensic evaluation, treatment, and research on criminal behavior. Forensic evaluations are completed through the utilization of state of the art, valid and reliable instruments, such as objective personality testing, penile plethysmograph (PPG), Psychopathy Checklist-Revised Second Edition (PCL-R 2nd Ed.), polygraph examination, and both actuarial and 'structured clinical' risk appraisal instruments (e.g. STATIC 99; HCR20). Evaluation results are communicated in clear language; each includes a 'summary judgment' of a subject's recidivism (reoffense) potential, and recommendations to manage the risk in the community.
Treatment of individuals at Intrapsychic is structured, research-based, offense-specific, and rooted in attachment theory. A client's evaluation identifies targets for intervention, and these 'needs' become the focus of treatment. Much of the process is done in a group format, though individual treatment sessions are used on an adjunctive basis. A psychiatrist works with the program, and medications are prescribed to improve emotional functioning and help control behavior. The foundation of treatment is to assist clients in gaining insight into the motivations for their abusive behavior, and to provide them with the behavioral skills to live healthy, offense-free lifestyles.
