Chapter 27 describes questions common in cross-examination and possible responses from the expert witness. Using this framework, this chapter addresses the three of the four principles directly related to expert testimony. The first principle is “communicate effectively during testimony”. The second principle involves basing testimony on the results of properly performed FMHA, with the teaching point addressing the use of the report to facilitate effective testimony. The third principle involves controlling the message-obtaining, retaining, and regaining control over the meaning and impact of what is presented in expert testimony.
