For over 20 years, Stanley L. Brodsky has served as an expert witness in the courtroom & has led workshops for mental health professionals. Now, he has gathered many useful observations together in one volume, TESTIFYING IN COURT: GUIDELINES & MAXIMS FOR THE EXPERT WITNESS. In brief, informal chapters, each arranged topically around one practical principle, Brodsky helps both the veteran expert witness & the novice identify effective modes of preparation for offering testimony, understanding the courtroom milieu, & evaluating the effectiveness of testimony before & after the actual experience. He also gives special attention on how to present testimony in the context of current knowledge & clinical practices, & shows how to keep the cross-examination process from invalidating the witness' presentation. TESTIFYING IN COURT will be of interest to all mental health professionals who wish to be both credible & effective on the witness stand.Brodsky, Stanley L. is the author of 'Testifying in Court Guidelines and Maxims for the Expert Witness' with ISBN 9781557981288 and ISBN 1557981280.
