Learning Objectives

The course will allow students to acquire an institutional knowledge of criminal proceedings, through the analysis of its qualifying principles and its constitutional and normative discipline. In addition, the course will explore in depth the procedural institutions that involve the intervention and contribution of the psychologist. Similarly, the rules that provide for the use of skills related to this professional figure will be explained.

Program

The first part of the course will analyse—in its main profiles—the discipline of the criminal prosecution introduced by the Italian 1989 Code of Criminal Procedure, examining the fundamental principles, the constitutional coordinates, the subjects, the phases and the rules of the probative procedure. In particular, the following topics will be subject to specific examination:

-   the institutes of expert opinion and technical consultancy;

-   the modalities of listening to the juvenile and the subjects of particular vulnerability during the preliminary investigations;

-   the pretrial hearing,

-   the trial;

-   the contexts in which the involvement of the expert is expected to protect both the emotional stability of the declarant and the genuineness of his testimony;

-   the “probation”, operating both in the juvenile and ordinary context, characterized by the preparation of the probation project by the criminal office of external execution;

-   the functional peculiarities of the criminal trial against the juvenile subject governed by Presidential Decree no. 448 of 1988 and the role of juvenile services in this context.
