PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION PREPARATION (PEPtalk)
PSYCHOLOGICAL DISQUALIFICATION APPEALS
Do you have clients who are experiencing psychological and functional impairment?
Dr. Lerner conducts forensic evaluations for personal injury and medical malpractice attorneys. By obtaining clinical and objective psychometric assessment data, we can significantly increase the value of the case. While monetary compensation may never be enough for psychological pain and suffering, the proven irresponsible acts of another person can pay for rehabilitation and ongoing mental health care.
Mental Health Document Review
Dr. Lerner prepares attorneys for depositions and trials. After thoroughly reviewing mental health documentation, he identifies critical variables and provides unsettling questions that opposing mental health providers do not want to be asked. He has over two decades of experience serving as an expert witness on behalf of (or for) plaintiffs and defendants.
“Personal Psychological Injury”
Dr. Lerner coined the term "Personal Psychological Injury" to address the often overlooked and minimized psychological and functional damage caused by traumatic events. He has served as an Expert Witness, Forensic Consultant, Forensic Examiner and Mental Health Treatment Provider (i.e., Clinical Psychologist) in legal matters involving:
• child abuse
• sexual mollestation
• wrongful termination
• employment matters
• criminal actions
• medical malpractice
• accidents, etc.
Dr. Lerner works regularly with parents and education lawyers to ensure that children’s psychoeducational needs are being appropriately addressed by schools. He is frequently involved in preparation for, and testifying in Disciplinary, Impartial and Manifestation Hearings.
