This post got me thinking about forensic evaluations in general. Are there very many gestalt-oriented forensic psychologists/psychiatrists out there? Is there a "standard" forensic interview? It seems to me that anyone not strictly adhering to DSM-IV (or something similar) is probably opening themselves up for a nasty cross-examination. For example, a gestalt therapist who offers expert testimony about the sanity of a defendant may be asked questions by the defense attorney designed to give the jury an imcomplete and unfavorable view of Gestalt -- thereby invalidating the testimony in the eyes of the decision-makers. (Don't mean to pick on Gestalt here. Could be done with virtually any "school".) Anyone know what the norms are?
