From Dr. Liebert’s extensive biography:

Dr Liebert has served as psychiatric consultant to the King County Police Department for serial murder cases, including the “Ted” Case (Ted Bundy), Green River Murder Case (Gary Ridgway), the Charmer Case (George Russell) and the Bellevue Sniper Case (Carl Harp). He served as Psychiatric Consultant to the Atlanta Police Department in the Atlanta Child Murder Case (Wayne Williams).

He has performed hundreds of felony evaluations for pretrial determination of criminal intent, pre-sentence evaluation for advising judiciary on best disposition – whether probation or incarceration, and for Correctional Psychiatry, such as diagnosing and treating inmates at California’s Pelican Bay Maximum Security Housing Unit. While serving with Seattle’s judiciary as psychiatric consultant to The Washington State Pre-sentence Unit, the sentencing judge followed his recommendations in over 95% of 150 cases.  Dr Liebert is a member of the Review Board for The American Investigative Society of Cold Cases.

He has published on the subject of Serial Murder, “Contributions of Psychiatry in the Investigation of Serial Murder”, in the International Journal of Offender Therapy and Comparative Criminology, and on Mass Murder-Suicides in Suicidal Mass Murderers, A Criminalogical Study of Why They Kill, (Taylor & Francis, CRC Press).

Dr Liebert was extensively trained in psychotherapy, including psychoanalytic, supportive, and behavioral therapies, at both The University of Washington and Seattle Psychoanalytic Society. He was in private practice in Bellevue, Washington for a number of years, prior to relocating ten years ago to Arizona for weather reasons. He has recently completed two mystery thriller novels. One is a psychology mystery, while the other is a counterterrorism thriller.

His website – www.johnliebert.com – has much more information about his practice, cases and background.
