This text provides practical, hands-on instruction for taking on the role of an expert witness. A companion volume to ""The Psychiatrist in Court: A Survival Guide"", the book encapsulates, into a single user-friendly volume, the wisdom and experience of forensic psychiatrist, Dr. Thomas Gutheil. Using an informal tone, Dr. Gutheil describes the ethical, clinical and functional role of the expert witness. He covers the details of case evaluation, discovery and depositions, and trials so that psychiatrists can provide truthful, ethical and effective testimony and avoid potential hazards and pitfalls. The book shares dozens of hints and practical advice on numerous subjects such as writing forensic reports, withstanding cross-examination, maintaining objectivity, marketing services ethically, and concluding fee agreements.
