Peer consultation

Are you new to forensic psychology or private practice?

Expanding into a new practice niche or learning about a new topic?

Working on a complex or thorny case?

Want advice on business practice issues?

 

Dr. Franklin has written about the perils of “unknown unknowns” in the context of forensic psychology. There are things we don’t know and don’t even realize that we don’t know. We don’t even know that there is a question that needs to be asked. So we stumble into a blind spot. Or we unwittingly engage in a biased practice. Without external input, it can be very hard to avoid such pitfalls. That’s why peer consultation is so critical in the high-stakes arena of forensic practice.

Dr. Franklin provides diverse consultation services to psychologists and other mental health professionals. Consultations are available on a one-time or ad hoc basis, or as part of a longer-term relationship. Peer consultation is completely customizable — in style, content and cost — to fit your needs.

For attorneys, Dr. Franklin is also available to consult behind the scenes on case strategy, and on effective cross-examination of opposing mental health experts. (See attorney consultation page for details.)
