Psychological and psychiatric injuries can give rise to some of the most complex and challenging expert evidence that can emerge in civil litigation. Such injuries occur in a wide range of circumstances: from motor vehicle and other accidents, to assaults, to toxic work environments, to medical malpractice, to name but a few.

Claims for psychological and psychiatric injury routinely give rise to complex issues of proof: issues relating to legal and scientific causation, foreseeability, diagnosis, and prognosis.

This comprehensive one-day program is designed to bring litigation counsel quickly up to speed on psychological, psychiatric, and neuropsychological evidence and the theoretical and practical issues surrounding the utilization of such evidence in civil claims.

Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 6 hours (this course will contain a minimum of 1 hour pertaining to professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
