Description:

The panel will be discussing the ways attorneys utilize mental health professionals - from peer review of GAL reports, to trial preparation, to testimony for one side or educational expert, to working with the client in some manner, etc.  The panel will discuss the ethical and legal boundaries of these roles, the gray areas between boundaries, and some of the clinical implications for mental health forensic practice and what is reasonable to ask of a MH professional.
