A guide for psychiatrists who have to make courtroom appearances. This book illustrates the basics of the legal process, including the setting, the assumptions, the personnel and the issues and techniques involved. Drawing on his experience as a forensic psychiatrist and expert witness, Dr. Thomas Gutheil describes the legal process step-by-step, from the subpoena and deposition to the actual trial, describing the surprises and pitfalls. He outlines different approaches to testifying on the witness stand and discusses the various roles a psychiatrist may play in court procedure. Gutheil uses examples drawn from actual cases and consultations with colleagues to show how to deal with the legal system successfully.
