Bernstein, Barton E.
Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, v5 n4 p93-100 Oct 1979
When a therapist becomes a courtroom witness, he often is in unfamiliar territory. This article reviews trial preparation and illustrates examination and cross-examination, opinion testimony, and hypothetical questions. Rules of effective response to cross-examination are set forth to aid therapists in providing meaningful, credible testimony under adverse and unpleasant conditions. (Author/BEF)
