    9:00 am – Noon
    Kristin W. Roscoe, Esq.

    Presentation Description (Topic 1)

    Attorneys use subpoenas to compel witnesses to appear to give testimony in litigation. Understandably, those few sheets of paper have the power to induce instant anxiety in the recipient. To combat that anxiety, in this three-hour presentation, CAMFT Staff Attorney Kristin Roscoe will go through the ins and outs of subpoenas and provide attendees with a greater understanding of what to look for and what to expect when called to provide testimony.

    Presentation Description (Topic 2)

    This three-hour workshop provides an overview of key considerations for therapists who provide services in school settings.
