From a leading expert on interpersonal violence, this book explains what mental health clinicians need to know about the legal system and their role in it, particularly when working with victims of child abuse, neglect, or domestic violence. John E. B. Myers provides an accessible overview of the criminal and civil justice systems, focusing on laws, cases, and procedures that are relevant to clinical practice. Numerous illustrative examples and legal cases are included. The book examines how interpersonal violence is proven in court and offers practical guidance for responding to subpoenas, interacting with legal personnel, testifying as an expert witness or fact witness, and managing liability and malpractice risks.
