    Confronting Mental Health Evidence describes and applies the author's four-step PLAN Model to help lawyers organize, critique, and use psychological materials and testimony when examining experts and framing legal arguments.

    This edition refreshes previous topics, including understanding testing and managing allegations of domestic violence and abuse, and adds three substantive new chapters:
    • How to identify and challenge judgment biases that underlie expert opinions
    • How to adopt a lawyer’s approach to DSM-5 based testimony
    • How to navigate confidentiality, HIPAA demands, and privilege when obtaining and using mental health records.

    It is the ideal companion for the author's other book published by the ABA Section of Family Law,  How to Examine Mental Health Experts: A Family Lawyer’s Handbook of Issues and Strategies. That book uses the PLAN Model to help lawyers spot and analyze mental health and evaluation-related issues likely to arise in cases, and offers questions to examine experts on direct or cross for each of those issues.
