Cultural Practices and Values that can Masquerade as Child abuse: A Literature Review and Recommendations for the Forensic Psychologist

Stacey A. Waters-Tozier

Cultural competency is the ethical responsibility of the forensic psychologist, especially concerning child custody and
abuse evaluations. This article reviews the literature concerning healing practices, cultural values, and hierarchies of
abuse to demonstrate the importance of cultural considerations for the forensic psychologist when evaluating child
abuse. Conclusions and recommendations from the literature are offered to support the forensic psychologist in
continued best practice. Direction for future research is also discussed.
