Shawn Adair Johnston, Ph.D.

 

Shawn Adair Johnston, Ph.D.Since 1980, Dr. Shawn Johnston has performed at least 10,000 judicially-referred psychological evaluations on every imaginable type of adult and juvenile criminal offender. He has also conducted at least 2,000-3,000 disability evaluations for the Social Security Administration in both California and Oregon. He received his Ph.D. in experimental Social Psychology from UCLA in 1977 and a Doctoral Specialty Certificate in Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology - Los Angeles in 1980. He obtained his psychology license in California in 1982 and was elected a member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1987 as a result of his published research regarding psychological characteristics of sex offenders.

Dr. Shawn Johnston has primarily worked as a forensic psychologist in private practice since 1980 and has taught part-time at UCLA, UC Davis, CSU Northridge, CSU Sacramento, Pepperdine Graduate School and Oregon State University. He is currently teaching at Portland State University and is a licensed psychologist in private practice in Oregon City, OR. For the past five years, his research focus has been in the area of detecting deception in psychological evaluations. Specifically, his work has focused on the development of an empirically-derived test readily accessible to counselors and psychologists in helping to differentiate between truthful and deceptive clients in both treatment and evaluations. He has presented a number of papers on this topic and is currently involved in preparing the results of this research for publication.
