"Good Reports" vs. "Bad Reports:"
A Judicial Perspective
Friday, June 25th, 2021
1 p.m. through 3 p.m.
Probably most counselors dread being called into court as an expert witness or being asked to write a report for a court because our training provides us little or no training for these kinds of situations. However, the quality of our testimony or report can often make a huge difference in how family situations are resolved. Crucial to the outcome is knowing what constitutes a “good report” from a “bad report” from a judge’s perspective.
1. Articulate the role of the court in the admissibility of reports.
2. Describe what judges are looking for in forensic reports.
3. Write a forensic report with the reader in mind.
