Forensic Organizational Consulting: The Role of Psychologists in Litigation Support

By Jay M. Finkelman With Linda Gomberg To Order

Skilled forensic consulting psychologists help clients prepare for courtroom trials. This book helps psychologists understand the demands of this challenging yet deeply rewarding field.

Forensic psychologists may be hired to participate in jury selection and witness preparation, organize mock trials and focus groups to test arguments, provide expert testimony and psychological evaluation, and conduct posttrial interviews that yield useful information for future cases.

Experienced forensic psychologists can anticipate probable jury or bench trial outcomes and can advise the lawyers they work with to settle, dismiss, or proceed with litigation.

This vignette‐filled, insider’s look at the rewards and challenges of forensic consulting includes nuanced discussion of the ethical challenges that consultants must navigate as part of their work.
