Legal Skills 2-day Comprehensive Training
|Presenters||Dr Phil Watts|
|Description||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 two-day 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.
Please note, if you have complete three above-mentioned workshops previously, this new workshop will be a two-day revision as no new material has been added (other than Dr Phil's case examples).
