An increasing number of counselors are called as witnesses in court proceedings involving their clients. Sometimes, the counselor intentionally becomes involved in a case as an expert or because they have agreed to take on a forensic or court involved role. Other times, the counselors work with the client does not initially carry with it an expectation of court involvement – but for a variety of reasons still leads to the counselor having to testify.

This webinar will focus on increasing counselor preparedness for court involvement with a focus on professional presentation to emphasize competency, credibility and confidence in a court room.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify common circumstances in which a professional counselor might find themselves as a witness in a court proceeding involving a client.
2. Review the court process, to include defining common legal terminology, so counselors know what to expect when called to testify in court.
3. Identify guidelines for testifying confidently to underscore competency and credibility.
