Evaluating Sexual Harassment provides psychologists with essential information for conducting an evidence-based forensic consultation. The authors acquaint readers with the clinical and social scientific literature on sexual harassment, and apply these findings to issues that psychologists must consider in preparing ethically sound and well-substantiated forensic reports and testimony. This book integrates existing research with current case law on sexual harassment. It offers a method for conducting a comprehensive evaluation of a plaintiff, as well as a science-based approach to the two major issues in sexual harassment disputes: causation and credibility. Of particular interest to readers will be two illustrative case reports and the chapter on alternate dispute resolution. This book will be a valuable resource for the experienced forensic practitioner seeking a comprehensive review of the research. For beginning evaluators who want to initiate practice in this area, this book provides a framework that is grounded in research and sound practice.
