From Courtroom to Clinic : Legal Cases that Changed Mental Health Treatment Hardback
Edited by Peter (Emory University, Atlanta) Ash
Why do present-day mental health professionals practice the way that they do?
Over the past fifty years, a number of landmark court holdings have changed such basic principles as what material is confidential, how civil commitment and involuntary treatment are conducted, and when a therapist has a duty to protect the public from a dangerous patient.
Unlike most legal texts, this volume explores these complex principles through the human stories of the litigants involved.
