Every family law practitioner will run into cases involving drug/alcohol use and abuse or mental illness. Given how common these issues are in family law cases, every family lawyer should know the basics of drug/alcohol use and abuse and how mental illness affects people suffering from it as well as the families of people dealing with these issues. This course will cover the basics of drug/alcohol use, as well as testing and expert testimony relating to drug and alcohol issues. The seminar will then discuss dealing with clients or opposing parties where mental health is a concern. There will be a brief discussion of the DSM V before diving into the characteristics of persons suffering from mental illness or personality disorders.
