Psychological trauma will be defined in behavioral and psychological terms. We will work together to identify the obstacles and opportunities presented in the legal system for the psychoanalytic and psychodynamically oriented expert witness. There will be a focus on both countertransference and ethical issues. Most importantly, the alleged and proven victims of psychological traumas will speak for themselves in various videotaped interviews. Since many if the traumas are horrifying, including severe sexual abuse and emotional torture, the content may be disturbing.

 

Educational Objectives:
Participants will be able to understand
  • what plaintiff and defense attorneys expect an expert witness to contribute to the education of a jury or to the settlement of a contested claim.
  • why a psychoanalytic point of view about the long term effects of childhood trauma has special value in a court room and goes far beyond a behavioral cross section.
  • how to formulate a clinical life care plan in a way that is associated with cost estimates over a lifetime.
  • consider the power of adverse childhood events research in forecasting psychosomatic problems and physical health care costs over a victims lifetime.
  • how to prepare a Meyerian Chart in a fashion that can be presented to a jury, instead of an ordinary legal timeline.
  • how to testify concerning “Loss of Parental Services”.
  • special features of scientific knowledge about the aftermaths of childhood sexual molestation.
  • special features of traumas involving “betrayal” by family, institutions, schools, and agencies.
