Please Plan to Arrive by 8:30am. We will start promptly at 8:45am

As litigants and lawyers gain access to therapeutically privileged information, mental health professionals should be prepared for various conversations. Mental health professionals should expect to receive telephone calls, emails, letters and/or more formal requests from parents involved in litigation, their attorneys, attorneys appointed to protect or waive the therapeutic privilege for a child, attorneys to act in the best interests of the child, and/or a private or court-appointed custody evaluators. Mental health professionals may receive formal notices, including subpoenas and requests for records, deposition testimony and trial testimony.

No matter your organization’s policies and legal procedures for protecting information and preventing your presence in a litigated case, this course will prepare you for inevitable conversations on the record. It will provide an overview and techniques to prepare you for responding to informal and formal requests for information. It will provide examples and practical tips for testifying at depositions and trial.

The course includes a viewing of sample vignettes and attendees will participate in mock conversations, depositions and trials. At the conclusion of the course, attendees should expect to increase competence and confidence in responding to inquiries, legal notices and procedures.
