Dr. Mark Ackerman specializes in psychological testing and forensic report preparation at his Atlanta, GA office.
I have always been interested in the law and the interplay between human behavior, legal proceedings and psychological functioning. As a result, through the American Academy of Forensic Psychology and other organzations I have obtained specialized training in forensic psychology. I am a member of the American Psychology-Law Society, Division 41, of the American Psychological Assocation, through which I remain involved with training and stay aware of developments of relevance to this specialty area. The assessments that I perform in this category ( forensic, e.g. legal cases) are designed to provide objective information for use by a third party, e.g. employer, law firm, insurance company, private business, government agency or court system. To remain objective and avoid conflicting interests, I usually do not become involved in rendering treatment for clients involved in these cases.
I currently devote 65% of my time to working with individuals and their attorneys on a range of psycho-legal matters including the following:
In all of the above categories, I will work closely with you and your legal team to help you achieve your goals in life.
