Beschreibung:

PTSD, pain syndromes, traumatic brain injury: these three areas are common features of personal injury cases, often forming the cornerstone of expert testimony. Yet their complex interplay in an individual can make evaluation-and explaining the results in court-extremely difficult.Psychological Knowledge in Court focuses on this triad separately and in combination, creating a unique guide to forensic evaluations that fulfills both legal and clinical standards. Its meticulous review of the literature identifies and provides clear guidelines for addressing core issues in causality, chronicity, and assessment, such as:- Are there any definable risk factors for PTSD?- How prevalent is PTSD after trauma?- How do patients' emotions relate to their pain experience?- Are current pain assessment methods accurate enough?- What is the role of pre-existing vulnerabilities in traumatic brain injury?- What exactly is "mild" TBI?
This book presents current theory and research on the way that psychological factors affect the presentation, diagnosis, and course of illness when causality is at issue. It offers an overview of the crucial scientific knowledge base and the appropriate, comprehensive assessment procedures to be followed in order to arrive at a proper determination for court or other related purposes. It posits and explores three primary factors that determine causality of psychological outcome: pre-stressor psychological vulnerabilities, the specified stressor, and post-stressor factors. Sections are disorder specific and separate chapters explore the facets mentioned.
