    This is the first comprehensive book to address the increasingly important role of forensic psychologists in consulting and expert witness testimony in child custody litigation. Authors Philip M. Stahl and Robert A. Simon are experienced forensic psychology consultants with a combined 50 years of experience. They are uniquely positioned to offer extensive practical advice on understanding the critical psychological dynamics frequently encountered in child custody cases as well as guidance in using your own forensic consultant and testifying expert in complex litigation.

    • Critical differences between the forensic and clinical mental health professional
    • A method for critiquing the work of the neutral court-appointed custody evaluator Potential biases interfering with a forensic report
    • Differences between the "behind-the-scenes" consultant whose work remains privileged and the testifying expert whose work is subject to disclosure from the start
    • In-depth discussion of important family dynamics and how to address these specific issues at the custody trial
    • And much more
