Authored by two of the country’s best known and most respected custody experts, Dr. Barry Bricklin and Dr. Gail Elliot, the course covers everything you need to know about structuring and writing a custody evaluation report, including the following:

  • Clarifying the evaluator’s role

  • What must be included in a comprehensive evaluation

  • What the evaluator should do when he or she cannot secure the cooperation of all the critical participants

  • Complex rules of confidentiality that apply in forensic evaluations

  • Fee arrangements

  • Determining who will receive a copy of the report

  • Clarifying whether the person who seeks the services of the MHP has a legal right to permit the evaluation and can waive confidentiality for the involved children regardless of what is in a court order, since judges are often not aware that some things that are legal are not ethical.

  • The complex issues that surround addressing the so-called “ultimate issue”

  • Clarify the evaluator’s possible appearance in a courtroom setting

  • Who should the evaluator communicate with prior to conducting the evaluation

  • Into which of the three major categories of purpose your evaluation will fit

  • The one important section that if missing from your report, judges and attorneys will not pay attention to it

  • Covering the nine essential goals of a comprehensive custody evaluation in your report

  • Gathering information from multiple but independent sources

  • Making sure that your observation scenarios are scientifically up to date

  • Making sure the necessary observation scenarios are included, without which observations cannot be scientifically defended as comprehensive
