Forensic psychologists are ignorant, incompetent, and unethical, they are the worst imaginable.
Note: if you believe the shared delusion, you become part of the shared delusion, you become part of the pathology. When that pathology is child abuse, you become part of the child abuse. When that pathology is spousal emotional, psychological, and financial abuse using the child as the weapon, you become part of the spousal abuse.
Did the forensic psychologist conduct a proper risk assessment for possible child psychological abuse?
Did the forensic psychologist conduct a proper risk assessment for possible spousal emotional and psychological abuse of the targeted parent using the child as the weapon?
Did the forensic psychologist conduct a proper assessment for a possible shared (induced) delusional thought disorder pathology?

Example of “Standards of Practice” for Child Custody Evaluations
This is a redacted copy of a child custody evaluation I reviewed as a clinical psychology consultant. I redacted red for original sentences and blue for direct quotes.
The forensic child custody evaluator simply recorded her interviews, had them transcribed, and then used the transcripts as the complete body of her report. She then offered a three paragraph conclusion that applied zero knowledge from professional psychology.
Note that she is a Diplomat of the American Board of Assessment Psychology. She is considered one of their best child custody evaluators. This is considered acceptable standard of practice in forensic child custody evaluations. In my professional opinion, it is fraud.
This is my de-identified Standard 1.04 letter of concern to this forensic psychologist.
