Diana Lynn Barnes, PsyD, and Gina Wong, PhD present a live virtual professional training program Role of the Expert Witness in Establishing the Relationship Between Maternal Mental Illness & Criminally Charged Behavior. This is the second program in the Maternal Mental Health and Its Application to Forensics: Training the Expert Witness series.
This intermediate program is designed for mental health professionals interested in the intersection between maternal mental illness and the criminal justice system. Foundational theories relevant to motivations for maternal filicide are advanced. Utilizing actual forensic cases, training includes the clinical development of a maternal filicide case from initial contact through completion of the written report. Specific assessment and evaluation tools are summarized.
This program promotes a deeper understanding of the relationship between psychosocial history and future risk for maternal filicide. Attendees will become familiar with developing a reproductive road map in explaining a woman’s state of mind at the time of the commission of the filicidal act.
This program also focuses on the applied practice of principles specific to the field of maternal filicide. Didactic approaches are augmented by the inclusion of experiential learning through discussion of actual forensic cases.
