Witness? Expert? Party to a Proceeding?
Preparing Mental Health Professionals for Legal System Involvement

Join us for a Live Webinar on October 20, 2023 from 12-3:20pm EDT
3 CE hours available for behavioral health clinicians

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.

 Learning Objectives:

  • Name the stages of a legal proceeding
  • Explain various contexts where mental health professionals can serve as valuable resources for a court proceeding
  • Effectively communicate important information within the legal system
  • Serve as an ambassador to the legal system for their clients
  • Serve as an advocate for their clients within the legal system
