Nicol Stolar-Peterson, LCSW, BCD, is an expert witness, child custody evaluator, therapist and non-profit director. Nicol is the founder of www.therapistcourtprep.com and she enjoys offering coaching and training for therapists and social workers.
Most clinicians' worst nightmare is court. Being subpoenaed, dealing with attorneys, going to court, not feeling confident in what to say and what to not say, and feeling overwhelmed. This workshop is an opportunity to learn the basics and then some. So basically what we do not get taught in grad school. Clinicians will learn how to minimize “invitations” to court and what to do if subpoenaed. We will talk about consent, invoking privilege, court letters, dealing with attorneys, court appearances, testimony and more.
