Family Court and Youth Court Reporter Guidelines- Introduction

Psychologists are commonly engaged to provide specialist reports to the Family and Youth Courts.  Guidelines for psychologists undertaking this work can be accessed below.
These guidelines are suggested as a best-practice guide for clinicians alongside appropriate training and supervision.
We strongly recommend that that the reader consult the full chapter for the background to the guidelines that can be accessed from the publication Psychology and the Law in Aotearoa New Zealand published in 2018. Other chapters in this publication also provide important guidance for conducting Family and Youth Court assessments.
