Psychiatry and Behavioral Science Section Award-Winning Paper of 1998



The current year, 1999, marks the 30th anniversary of the founding of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law (AAPL). AAPL was created by fifteen forensic psychiatrists and (as of this date) has 1875 members. AAFS and its Psychiatry and Behavioral Science Section have a long history of cooperation with AAPL. Most notably, AAFS and the Forensic Sciences Foundation were co-sponsors with AAPL of the American Board of Forensic Psychiatry, Inc. Subsequently, AAFS and AAPL jointly sponsored the Accreditation Council on Fellowships in Forensic Psychiatry. For the past decade, an AAFS Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences liaison committee has presented programs at the annual AAPL conventions that are designed to introduce AAPL's forensic psychiatrists to AAFS's broad range of other forensic sciences.
