Juvenile offender

Juvenile offender


For the assignment, create a 9–12-slide PowerPoint presentation for a group of trainee mental health professionals and legal representatives. In your presentation, explain three different measures that might be used to determine an appropriate diagnosis for a juvenile offender. The possible diagnoses are:

  • ADHD.
  • Oppositional defiance.
  • Conduct disorder.

You may see overlap in the measures you examine but be sure your rationale addresses why a particular measure supports your choice for the specific disorder.

  • Include the following for each measure in your presentation:
    • A brief description of the disorder ( in your own words).
    • A description of the measure (in your own words include how the measure is administered, what it measures, and what its strengths and limitations are)
    • A rationale for your choice.


Your assignment should meet the following requirements:

  • APA formatting: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style and formatting guidelines.
  • Length of presentation: 9–12 slides, not including the title slide, the references slide, or the notes slides.
  • References: A minimum of three references.
