Surviving the Witness Box: Expert Opinion in Court
By Dr Phil Watts

Surviving the Witness Box: Expert Opinion in Court is a useful guide for professionals required to give opinion evidence in court. While much of the content is directly relevant to psychologists, the book also contains examples from a range of professions, including accounting and engineering. Learn about the pathways to court (and how to avoid them), the rules of court, writing reports for court, providing expert evidence, dealing with cross-examination and more. The book also offers a number of strategies to help you, and your evidence, to be perceived positively.

"Providing evidence to a court can be challenging for any witness regardless of profession or experience. 'Surviving the Witness Box' is an excellent tool which will assist all professionals in presenting useful and meaningful evidence to the court. The way Dr Watts explains the court process in this book can improve your credibility and also calm the nerves!" Robin Bourgeois, Family Court Lawyer
