This session will focus on ADLs, treatment, behaviors and character issues that are often seized upon to deny claims and reject medical evidence. It will address common beliefs that adjudicators rely upon to cast doubt on credibility of claimants and provider reports, how to anticipate them and counter them at hearings and attack them on appeal.
