The Mental Health Professional in Court: A Survival Guide is designed to help mental health professionals become more knowledgeable about the settings, assumptions, personnel, issues, and techniques involved in going to court, with the aim of demystifying the legal process and reducing anxiety about this inherently stressful experience.
