By John Zervopoulos, J.D., Ph.D.

Finally, here’s a book that will show you how to understand and effectively challenge mental health evidence in divorce cases.

You’ll learn how mental health concepts are typically applied in the divorce context, and how to analyze them from a Daubert perspective. You’ll understand qualifications and methodology, and how experts draw conclusions and form opinions in these cases. Even better, you’ll learn how to expose analytical gaps, overly abstract concepts, ipse dixit assertions, unsupported claims, misapplied research, and confirmatory bias. Special attention is paid to claims of domestic violence and sexual abuse. Finally, the author considers problems of patient confidentiality, HIPAA and psychotherapist-patient privilege.

One volume, softbound, 297 pages. Published in 2015.
