Psychological Testing: A User's Manual for Lawyers

  • Continuing Legal Education Program (CLE)

This program, directed especially to family law attorneys but likely of interest to any attorneys who deal with psychologists as treating providers or forensic experts. It will unveil the purpose and methodology of the most commonly used psychological testing.


Those considering this program should note that it is being presented by an attorney focused on the advocacy process.

Lawyers can go beyond just knowing what the tests are and how they work and actually use what they learn in this program in advocacy practice.This program is intended to help lawyers look into and then deal with the content of the “black box” that typically is simply accepted as a given in cases involving psychological issues.

The goal is to make lawyers informed consumers of the foundational bases for the opinions psychologists express in clinical and forensic settings. Once so informed lawyers can better understand, inquire about, critically evaluate and then much more effectively examine and cross-examine psychologists about their opinions.
