PROMOCOPY

Over the past twenty five years almost every aspect of psychiatry has been shaped by burgeoning legal and administrative procedures. Commitment, the right to treatment, the right to refuse treatment, monitoring drug therapy, hospital discharge, suicide assessment, confidentiality, the duty to warn, electroconvulsive therapy, malpractice suits, and standard of care are just some of the areas undergoing intense legal scrutiny. American Psychiatric Press Review of Clinical Psychiatry and Law series presents a comprehensive review of these important issues in clinical psychiatry and the law.

Written in response to the clinician's need for more knowledge and understanding of the fundamental interaction between psychiatry and the law, this volume is focused on promoting a collaborative spirit between psychiatry and the law in order to provide the best possible clinical care for patients
