PROMOCOPY

Over the past twenty-five years almost every aspect of psychiatry has been shaped by burgeoning legal and administrative procedures. American Psychiatric Press Review of Clinical Psychiatry and the Law, Volume 2, addresses four major areas of pressing concern to clinical psychiatrists. In Section I on psychotherapy and malpractice, the author defines treatment boundaries according to Freud's principle of abstinence. The duty to neutrality and other aspects of fiduciary relationship between patient and therapists are examined.

Section II presents a comprehensive analysis of involuntary civil commitment. This section is essential reading for psychiatrists who have responsibility for the care of patients, either directly or indirectly. Section III provides the psychiatrist with a valuable literature review and a clinically based discussion of the assessment and management of the violent patient. Specific methods for assessment of the risk of violence are presented. Section IV tackles an area of ever-increasing concern and complexity for psychiatrists: the psychiatrist's relationship with nonmedical professionals.

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