As a Forensic Psychologist, I suggest that efforts be made to include funding for either full time or part time paid positions at the County Level so that our skills may be utilized for intervention as the need arises. I offered my services pro bono when I was employed full time in the VCCS when I resided in Falls Church, VA. Selecting the right psychologist is important. I suggest those practicing Cognitive Behavioral Psychology and those having a CCP as steps toward eliminating those that can be a pain in the gluteus maximus. When they were in college, if they were on the wrestling team, that will be a positive. If they are into MMA, that is yet another positive.
