The Psychiatrist as Expert Witness, Second Edition, by Thomas G. Gutheil, M.D., is a highly readable and practical update of his successful first edition. The focus of the new volume is to guide readers to become, improve, and successfully market a career as a psychiatric expert witness. A professor of psychiatry at the Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Gutheil draws on his decades of experience in the courtroom and countless beginner s mistakes to help readers avoid pitfalls. While of great value to newcomers to the field, the book offers insights and guidance to early-career and seasoned expert witnesses alike. This volume has been extensively revised and updated from the first edition, which has been used in nearly all forensic psychiatric training programs in the United States and Canada. As in the first edition, this volume explores the role of the expert witness, moral issues, basic principles, depositions and trials, writing for the court, and ethical marketing. In addition, it includes a glossary, expanded definitions of key concepts, a lengthened discussion of bias in testimony, new illustrative examples, a model consent form for forensic examination, and cases that have arisen since the first edition.
