Weinstein trial: exculpatory witnesses through – soon to be pladoyers

The sensational rape trial against former film mogul harvey weinstein is entering the home stretch. After the 67-year-old's defense finished questioning its exculpatory witnesses on tuesday, the closing arguments by weinstein's camp and the prosecution are now scheduled for the end of the week.

Starting tuesday, the twelve jurors are expected to retire for deliberations to decide on weinstein's guilt or innocence. It also became clear on tuesday that weinstein himself will not testify in his trial. This would have been possible, but with considerable risks for the defense in the event of a crossfire.

Even though the grief of children and adolescents can be similar to that of adults, especially in the experience and the associated tasks of processing grief, it can differ significantly in the expression and ways of processing it. It is considered a greater challenge to talk to children and adolescents about dying and death and, moreover, to be a reliable support for them in their grief.
