A Review of Clinical Psychiatry and the Law
Many mental health practitioners are frightened by the confusing and restrictive legal requirements imposed upon their practices. This book is for them. The purpose of this book is to guide the mental health clinician in conducting his practice according to the requirements of the legal system without fear. While other books scare clinicians away from practice, and promote defensive modes of practice, this book seeks to provide familiarity with the legal requirements in order to diminish fears and defensive practices.
