The author assessed an 18 year old prisoner who was a potential murderer and rapist. His supervisor objected to the report, perhaps because the supervisor wanted the youth transferred out of the treatment program. However the report indicated too much pathology to justify transfer. After ordering a rewrite and not being satisfied with it, the supervisor it would seem made the report “disappear”, and the Youthful Offender Parole Board did not have it when they considered and granted transfer. The conflict between the supervisor and the author is explained via the differing perceptions of a manager vs. a professional psychologist. Legal issues are also discussed.
