    Forensic Psychologist for Competency Evaluations

    Torrance State Hospital

     

    MHM Solutions, Inc., in our exclusive partnership with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, provides medical professional staffing services to  Norristown State Hospital. MHM is a leading provider of specialized healthcare services to state and local government agencies nationwide.

     

    Torrance State Hospital (TSH) is seeking a full-time Licensed Psychologist for Forensic Competency Evaluations. The hospital serves individuals in three distinct services: (1) Civil; (2) Forensic, through the Regional Forensic Psychiatric Center (RFPC); and (3) Sexual Responsibility & Treatment Program (SRTP). This dynamic facility has a dedicated staff of professionals and non-professionals who offer hope for recovery which is based on an individualized plan of treatment through referral from county-based programs. The Regional Forensic Psychiatric Center (RFPC) provides active psychiatric treatment and/or psychiatric evaluation in a secure facility for persons that are involved with the county-based judicial/correction systems. A person referred for admission to the RFPC must be under criminal detention by this system. For those persons committed for psychiatric treatment, the anticipated outcome is that with stabilization of symptoms, the individual will return to the judicial system. For those individuals referred for court ordered evaluations, the outcome is their return to the judicial system with a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation forwarded to the court of jurisdiction.

     

    The licensed, doctoral clinical psychologist will have experience, a minimum of two years, with forensic competency evaluations and join the Forensic RFPC team.  The position will be responsible for evaluations of competency for individuals committed to the Torrance State Hospital in the Forensic units for competency restoration related to criminal charges. The psychologist will conduct the evaluations, meet with the patients and treatment team and review patient’s record, prepare reports to the court according to best practice standards and testify in court as required.
