Su questo libro:


In recent years social workers have expanded their role as expert witnesses. At the same time, lawyers, judges, and juries have recognized how compellingly narratives communicate facts in a courtroom setting. Testimony is, and always has been, a story. The Narrative Edge describes and illustrates how to create a setting, vivid characters, and lucid statements of fact that help a court and jurors unravel difficult technical matters.

Ronald K. Bullis, PhD, JD, draws on his expertise in social work and the law in this example-packed and insightful guide. By marrying narrative theory to the context of expert testimony, the book shows social workers how to make their testimony as expert witnesses accurate, persuasive, and effective.
