Presented by Kristin Roscoe, JD, CAMFT Staff Attorney

This presentation is intended to provide an understanding of what a subpoena requiring testimony includes as well as the legal and ethical considerations therapists should keep in mind when testifying. During this 1.5 hour course, Kristin Roscoe will guide attendees on what to expect if subpoenaed to attend a deposition or hearing/trial and provide attendees time to apply their newly acquired skills in an interactive exercise.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to analyze a subpoena to determine who issued the subpoena, what type of testimony is requested, and the appropriate next steps in responding to a subpoena seeking testimony. Participants will be able to identify the holder of the psychotherapist-patient privilege, when it is appropriate for a therapist to assert the psychotherapist-patient privilege on behalf of a patient, and when such an objection is not appropriate.

Presented by Miranda Palmer, LMFT and Kelly Higdon, LMFT
