Supervises Department of Juvenile Justice Psychologists in South Carolina

Jennifer Christman is the supervisor for all South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice psychologists working in the upper third of the state. “I supervise the community psychologists—clinicians who work in juvenile justice county offices rather than in detention facilities. I was hired upon graduation and had been with the agency for less than three years before being promoted to this position,” she says.

 

She presented at the American Psychological Association conference before she completed her degree, is licensed in two states, and nationally credentialed with the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. Jennifer has also given professional presentations on juvenile offenders with a history of trauma and was selected to present at a national juvenile justice symposium in 2016.

 

Jennifer served on a committee that revised South Carolina DJJ's psychological evaluation process and was chosen to lead the state-wide psychologist training for the revised process. She is one of the few state agency psychologists qualified to perform juvenile waiver (transfer) evaluations and has provided expert testimony in court for these evaluations.  Jennifer has also established a part-time practice of performing contract forensic psychological evaluations in North Carolina.

 

Jennifer, who in 2012 earned a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Forensic Psychology from American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Washington DC says that her education prepared her for her career. “I received exemplary instruction and [strong] clinical experience before I even graduated.”

 

She adds that her education provided valuable clinical and forensic experience. “My professors are incredibly accomplished and talented professionals in their fields. I am honored to have worked with them.”
