Clients with mental health conditions are quite common in the course of a legal practice. This training will discuss common conditions and provide strategies for best representing clients in these circumstances:
Cases where a mental health condition is part of the claim
Effectively and respectively communicating with clients with mental health or personality disorders
How to appropriately share and present evidence related to the mental health condition to an adjudicator in order to help mitigate or explain behaviors in the context of a claim
Challenges regarding capacity, reasonableness of client demands, communication and decision making.
This will be a discussion focused training, with hypotheticals and an engaging conversation. We welcome your questions!
