Chapter 7 explores report writing and testimony. This chapter covers issues in communicating FMHA results in child protection cases: including differences in reports written for therapeutic versus forensic consumers, strategies for organizing and writing forensic reports, and considerations in providing consultation and effective oral testimony. Although many aspects of reports and testimony apply across all forensic areas, this chapter highlights specific considerations in reporting on parenting capacity evaluations in child protection.
