Dr. Hagen is the author of the controversial book, Whores of the Court: The Fraud of Psychiatric Testimony and the Rape of American Justice. She is an expert in the field of visual perception and an avid proponent for eliminating all psychiatric testimony from our courtrooms. Dr. Hagen believes that psychiatric testimony is based on subjective opinions, intuition and “junk science.”
