For over 20 years I have been conducting formal psychological assessments for legal and/or insurance purposes. This process typically involves review of documentation, clinical interviews, psychometric testing, and generating a report. It can involve anywhere from 10 to 20 hours of work. Additional service and cost is associated with court preparation and appearances.
I have been accepted as an expert witness for both criminal and civil cases in the Supreme Court of BC and the Review Board of BC on a number of psychological issues, including diagnosis, assessment process, and treatment.
Areas in which I have been conducting assessments include:
