TOPTHREEREVIEWS

"Drs. Simon and Sadoff have come to the rescue of those still siting on the fence trying to decide whether blurring the boundaries of the therapeutic relationship can survive a risk/benefit analysis. Their book points out clearly, through significant legal case analyses, that the joy of the moment is nothing compared to the incredible pain and suffering resulting from exposure as a predatory practitioner. . . . Although Psychiatric Malpractice is not intended specifically to be a legal treatise, it is refreshing to note that Drs. Simon and Sadof exude a sophistication about the law that is not commonly found among members of the medical profession unless they have attended or completed formal legal training. . . . The therapists� PDR has just been published. It is Psychiatric Malpractice."�Journal of Legal Medicine
"This book offers the practicing psychotherapist just about everything he or she would want to know about professional liability, such as how to recognize it and how to avoid it."�Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
"This is a clear, lucid, intelligent, practical, and comprehensive text that should be required reading for all mental health professionals. Drs. Simon and Sadoff clarify some of the most complicated, controversial, and anxiety-provoking issues that practitioners face, and place them in an understandable context."�Michael L. Perlin, Professor of Law, New York Law School, from the Foreword
