The inherent conflict a psychology professional in a corrections setting might experience by being in the dual role of a treatment provider and an evaluator

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

APA stance is that a psychologist  should refrain from entering into a multiple relationship if the multiple relationship could reasonably be expected to impair the psychologist's objectivity, competence, or effectiveness in performing his or her functions as a psychologist, or otherwise risks exploitation or harm to the person with whom the professional relationship exists.

A multiple relationship occurs when a psychologist is in a professional role with a person and at the same time is in another role with the same person, 

In such a situation as above The psychologists would be expected to choose one role and leave the other role to another psychologist since his effectiveness would be impaired

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
