Default Re: question regarding court cases & EMDR

I'd ask her attorney if s/he is okay if the patient improves. There is a myth that attorneys want their clients unhinged, but I think the good ones realize that an unraveled client doesn't make a terrific witness. But if the attorney is aware what the possible outcomes are, they may choose earlier depos or video depos, in case the client gets much better. In my experience, good attorneys say it's fine if the client gets better. And then they do, and they may a sound and believable witness because they can describe their injuries in an integrated and comprehensible way.
