Formal Forensic Psychiatry Training
Annotation Regarding "Board Certification" in Forensic Psychiatry: According to the forward of the "Textbook of Forensic Psychiatry," edited by Robert I. Simon, MD and Liza H. Gold, MD, 2004, American Psychiatric Publishing (page xxii):
"Increasingly, lawyers seek experienced forensic psychiatrists to conduct clinical assessments and then testify when necessary."
"Nevertheless, general psychiatrists without subspecialty board certification or formal training in forensic psychiatry conduct most forensic psychiatric examinations. General psychiatrists also give the majority of forensic psychiatric testimony. The general clinician has been drawn into the courtroom as an expert for various reasons. The rise of HMOs and insurance controlled treatment has created economic pressures that have made other areas of psychiatric practice, such as forensic psychiatry, more appealing. Although the general psychiatrist may become more involved in civil or administrative cases than in criminal ones, the publicity that often accompanies high-profile forensic cases has also on occasion drawn practitioners to this subspecialty field. Finally, many attorneys prefer to retain academicians or general clinicians who have not specialized in forensic psychiatry. These attorneys are concerned about the 'hired gun' label when utilizing the services of psychiatrists who have testified in hundreds of cases. They prefer someone with extensive clinical experience who has not been labeled as a forensic specialist."
"This textbook is therefore both important and timely. It is geared to the general clinician working in psychiatry who may become involved in any of the fascinating aspects of forensic psychiatry. Once psychiatrists become known to attorneys as effective expert witnesses, they may be called on to participate in a number of future cases. Clinicians interested in developing an effective and successful forensic practice should have a basic understanding of the legal system and the role of the clinician in forensic cases."

GAP is the most prestigious psychiatric organization in the United States. Being awarded a GAP Fellowship is among the most prestigious honors in psychiatry. As a GAP Fellow, I attended GAP Meetings on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday on four separate occasions, for a total of twelve 3-day meetings over my 2-year tenure as a GAP Fellow. The meetings were in the following four months: April 2001, November 2001, April 2002, and November 2002. Between each of these meetings, I spend approximately 8 hours per week researching the Forensic Psychiatry literature, with particular emphasis on stalking, including predatory stalkers who engage in acts of sexual violence. Therefore, total time spent between the four 3-day meetings was approximately 832 hours (8 hours X 52 weeks X 2 years). In May, 2007, my work as a GAP Fellow resulted in the publication by the Oxford University Press of the textbook, “Stalking: Psychiatric Perspectives and Practical Approaches,” which included my research and co-authorship. My research for this book included substantial reading and discussion of stalkers and sex offenders, with particular emphasis on predatory stalkers, who usually engage in acts of sexual violence. Dr. Phillip Resnick was my official mentor during my time as a GAP fellow. Dr. Resnick is considered by many forensic psychiatrists to be among the greatest forensic-psychiatry educators of all time. As my official mentor, Dr. Resnick played a substantial role by way of teaching at GAP meetings and by way of correspondence and teaching that occurred over the two year period during my tenure as a GAP Fellow serving on the Forensic Psychiatry committee (known as the Committee for Psychiatry and the Law).]
