Summary
"From a leading expert on interpersonal violence, this book explains what mental health and social work professionals need to know about the legal system and their role in it, particularly when working with victims of child maltreatment or domestic violence. Using numerous illustrative examples and legal cases, John E.B. Myers provides crucial information and advice on the myriad legal issues that practitioners face both in the courtroom and in everyday clinical practice. Myers offers an accessible overview of the justice system, focusing on laws, cases, and procedures that are relevant to clinical practice. A range of legal proceedings are described, including criminal cases, child custody determinations, dependency proceedings in child abuse cases, and civil commitment. The book presents practical guidance for responding to subpoenas, interacting with police and legal personnel, and managing liability and malpractice risks. The nuts and bolts of testifying in court are addressed, including serving as an expert witness, what to expect from cross-examination, the admissibility of hearsay evidence, and the release of privileged and confidential information. The book examines standards of proof for interpersonal violence, with particular attention to the difficulties of proving child sexual abuse. Throughout, emphasis is given to how clinical and legal professionals can work together to achieve justice for those who have been vicitmized. Written in a down-to-earth style that makes legal concepts accessible, this is an invaluable, authoritative reference for clinical psychologists, social workers, family therapists and counselors, child welfare professionals, forensic psychologists and psychiatrists, and pediatricians, as well as students in thes fields."--Jacket flap
