Glossary of Psych Terms
In recent years contact with attorneys reveals they tend to dislike taking deposition testimony from psychologists and psychiatrists. Basically, these attorneys believe that the psych doctor has so much knowledge about their subject matter that they are unapproachable on a cross-examination. Carrying out the thought a little further what is likely going on here is that psychologists and psychiatrists use so many different terms and concepts that do not have a generally understood meaning that they can easily dance around the true issues or appear to be unclear. One way of leveling this playing field is to clarify or define those concepts. Hence, as a free self-help resources, a glossary of psychology terms is available for download here.
