Technical consultancy for court cases
What is a CTP?
CTP in Italian means “Consulente Tecnico di Parte” a party-appointed technical consultant, in our case a forensic psychologist who supports you if you are in a lawsuit requiring your psychological or neuro-psychological assessment.
When do you might need a CTP?
Marriage Issues (separations/divorces/anulment) with personality assessment
Law decisions on children, with evaluation of parenting
Insurance suits, with assessment of cognitive damage
Mobbing suits, with assesment of personal distress and mental wellbeing
How does is it work?
When a judge requires a psychological or neuro-psychological assessment, he/she can nominate a court-appointed technical consultant, in Italian called CTU (Consulente Tecnico d’Ufficio).
The parties can, if they wish, nominate a forensic psychologist, the CTP, to monitor the CTU’s work. A CTP can ask the CTU to integrate or modify the assessment method and can object to the CTU’s evaluation.
