The book, Forensic Psychology Consultation in Child Custody Litigation: A Handbook for Work Product Review, Case Preparation, and Expert Testimony, draws from the professional experiences of authors Philip M. Stahl of Arizona and Robert A. Simon of California. They have a combined 50 years in the field and are uniquely positioned to offer extensive practical advice on understanding the critical psychological dynamics in child custody cases. Each frequently teaches continuing education programs for judges, lawyers and mental health professionals on disputes, evaluation and litigation related to child custody cases.
Nationally, more than 50 percent of divorces are said to have child custody disputes, and courts often rely heavily on unbiased and balanced child custody evaluation work products. While the book has the narrow purpose of providing attorneys with a primer on how child custody and parenting reports should be reviewed and used, it covers a wide range of issues, from the developmental needs of children to the differences in forensic and clinical mental health professionals.
