Title: Ack! I’ve Been Served! Responding To A Subpoena
Description: Walking out to the waiting room, you wonder who’s waiting. It’s a process server and you read with shock that you have been subpoenaed! Ack! What now?
Christy Graham, MA LPC S RPTS has been there. You’ll come out of this training with concrete steps to take right after you are served. You will also have a friend to call if you are stressed or actually end up having to testify. (That’s Christy!)
Bio: Growing up in Texas, going to Texas A & M [Whoop!], and being a pastor’s kid, I learned how to feel a part of a group. I can teach you to create connection through rituals, stories and fun that translate into a better life for the whole family. Incorporating your religion and other important stories and models of behavior is important to treatment. I use my personal walk as a Christian to inform my treatment, even if your beliefs don’t exactly match mine.
My work with team oriented practices such as MHMR of Polk County taught me the power of a multidisciplinary team. That translates into great skill and comfort working with schools, child care agencies, and courts for the benefit of my clients. And the experience of working with children at a residential treatment center gives me the perspective and experience needed in highly complex, sometimes dangerous situations with children and teens. If you are looking for a highly experienced, compassionate counselor, I’m your girl!
As our practice has grown, our commitment to complex families has as well. My unique experience and qualifications, as well as my desire to serve my clients, has motivated me to redirect my energies to working with courts and court involved clients. I’m part of several practice groups that focus on best practices in court, collaborative law, and high conflict families.
