Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Legal Work
- Lawyers seeking to assist clients in alleged domestic violence, child abuse (emotional, physical and sexual), addictions, alcoholism and similar matters often refer their clients to qualified therapists for assessments to be used in court proceedings.
Therapists are also asked to provide appropriate treatment, often in the form of anger management.
Typically such clients have 8 to 12 hours of individual assessment. The findings, providing relevant information of value to the client and to the court, are then written up by the therapist for use in the matter.
Where clients have language issues, it is worth noting that therapists able to work within their language framework are in a better position to translate what is happening for the benefit of the client.
