Are you looking forward to giving evidence? What do you have concerns about? Do you know how to prepare written evidence that will be taken seriously in court? "See You in Court" is an accessible guide for social workers on being a witness in care proceedings. With little training and few resources available, social workers can find preparing for court a daunting part of their role. "See You in Court" answers questions frequently asked by social workers in real cases, and gives information on court structures, basic rules of evidence, the roles of those involved in the proceedings, and court etiquette. The process of giving evidence is discussed, including how to deal with cross-examination. Case studies support the material, as well as multiple-choice questions and a checklist for witnesses. This practical book is essential reading for social workers, particularly those working with children and families.
