In The Psychiatric Witness in Court, Calvin Colarusso documents how the psychiatric profession plays a vital role in the legal process. Reports of evaluations and psychological test reports are provided, in addition to examples of direct testimony and cross-examination taken from actual cases. Colarusso demystifies the legal process by demonstrating that the well-prepared mental health expert has little to fear from cross-examination. This book encourages greater participation of mental health professionals to provide much needed expert witness input in the U.S. court system.

Calvin A. Colarusso MD, is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California at San Diego and training and supervising analyst in adult and child psychoanalysis at the San Diego Center for Psychoanalysis.
