Preparing Mental Health Professionals for Legal System Involvement
Witness? Expert? Party to a Proceeding?
Are you working with a family involved in a custody case? Have you been asked
to serve as an expert witness? Are you worried about being sued? Mental health
professionals are often put in a position where they must interface with the legal
system. Many times, these interactions are not voluntary on the part of the
mental health professional. As a result, they can be daunting. This course will
help prepare mental health professionals with information and skills to
competently interface with the legal system, when necessary.
