Psychiatrists Explore Legacy of Traumatic Stress in Early Life
They ask what would be construed as leading or contaminating questions , said James Rosenberg , MD , director of the Forensic Neuropsychiatry Medical Group , Westlake Village , Calif..The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry adopted standards for the assessment and treatment of PTSD in children and adolescents in 1998 that help provide a foundation for forensic examinations ( http : //www.aacap.org/new%5Fweb/clinical/.ptsdsum.htm )Expert witnesses often are asked to describe the typical course of PTSD and to predict outcomes for a particular child.There's no consensus on whether one sex is more likely than the other to develop the disorder , Rosenberg said.Girls are sexually assaulted more often than boys , for example.Boys experience more serious unintentional injuries and physical trauma.After exposure to the same traumatic event , such as a school shooting , older children are more likely to develop reexperiencing and hyperarousal symptoms , Rosenberg said , while younger ones more often display avoidance symptoms.In adolescence , he noted , PTSD may delay or impair development of independence and self-sufficiency.Debate continues on whether a child who meets some but not all criteria for PTSD has as serious a problem as a child with a full range of symptoms.This is particularly a concern in younger children who may have dramatic symptoms in one category , Rosenberg said , yet appear to have few or none in another.What's at stake is the extent of damages for emotional distress the child is entitled to receive in a civil case.Trauma in several populations thought to be at increased risk for PTSD is understudied.Some 500 000 children are in foster care , most of whom typically entered this system at age 3 years.Many have a history of physical and sexual abuse , neglect , and abandonment.One study found that boys with substance abuse problems engaged in high-risk behaviors that put them at risk for trauma , such as driving while drunk or hanging out in alleys.For a child , testifying in a courtroom may be stressful , even traumatic , Rosenberg said.Younger children are more susceptible to suggestion , intimidation , and inappropriate cross-examination than older ones.JUVENILE OFFENDERSIn one study , however , 20% of girls reported having been forced to have sexual intercourse before age 14 ( James , CB.Incarcerated Youth Needs Assessment Survey.Los Angeles : Charles Drew University ; 1999 ).
McAnelly v. Yamaha | Verdicts & Case Studies | Bowman and Brooke LLP
Yamaha's witnesses included accident reconstructionist, Kris Kubly from Madison, Wisconsin, lighting and off-road vehicle expert, Kevin Breen from Ft. Myers, Florida, biomechanic, Dr. Harry Smith from San Antonio, Texas, and psychiatrist Dr. James Rosenberg from Woodland Hills, California.
James E. Rosenberg, a Woodland Hill-based forensic psychiatrist who investigated the SilkAir flight from Jakarta to Singapore, concluded that the Indonesian and Singaporean governments missed warning signs about the pilot's financial problems, impulsive behavior and anger over disciplinary actions.
"You got to understand that typical suicide does not apply here. Pilots are high-functioning, stress-resilient people You are not going to expect that these guys are crying, not shaving, not getting out of bed. You have to look at more subtle signs,'' said Rosenberg. "What turned out to be important was not that he continued to look social and friendly and relaxed in casual contact ... but that privately he was angry and vindictive.'' Rosenberg said the pilot had also taken pains to disguise his culpability in the crash.
