Event description
Essentials guide to court – How not to go, and if you do how to do it well!

About this Event

Dr Phil has been training clinicians on how to avoid court and if they have to go, how to survive the witness box. His three one-day workshops include Legal Skills 101 – a Reliable witness, writing reports for court, and surviving the witness box. This workshop compresses the three past workshops into a single comprehensive package.

The content of the workshop includes:-

• Understand the legal system and where mental health workers fits in

• Develop strategies to avoid going to court

• Appreciate the difference between lay and opinion evidence

• Understand the need for record keeping and notes

• Know the critical differences between treatment reports and forensic assessments

• Learn to write practical reports for court

• Anticipate the five domains of cross examination

• Learn why it is impossible to predict the line questions

• Practice strategies to survive the witness box

The target audience of this workshop is broad enough to cover anyone who has to give opinion evidence in court. The emphasis is for those who have minimal or limited experience with court and would like practical survival tools. Experienced practitioners will also benefit with a refresher in the key skills for giving good evidence.

This is a repackaging of Dr Phil’s previous Reliable Witness and Surviving the witness box workshops into a single one-day presentation.

Fees include morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea
