The term ‘pre-trial’ therapy refers to therapy in which the client has an open police investigation that may lead to a criminal trial. Following pre-trial therapy guidelines is essential when supporting clients, so as to not adversely affect the outcome of their court case.
Public discourse around sexual and domestic violence, such as the #MeToo movement, has led to an increase in reports to the police and involvement in the criminal justice system. An awareness of pre-trial therapy guidance has never been more relevant to therapists and professionals supporting vulnerable people.
