In keeping with previous volumes in this series, this latest edited collection addresses emerging legal pressure points in clinical psychiatric practice.

Supported by recent references to case law, case vignettes, and useful assessment tools, this volume offers guidelines to clinicians on such issues as establishing an appropriate standard of disclosure in informed consent, dealing with the problem of dual loyalties, assessing patient suicide risk, and following proper procedure in the event a patient does commit suicide.

"Dr. Simon is performing an outstanding service in the area of psychiatry and the law. This book�like the previous two in the series�is a work of wide-ranging scope, thoroughly covering the topics undertaken. It is a good book. Accolades to Dr. Simon."�American Journal of Psychiatry
"Overall, this informative book (and series of volumes edited by Simon) will provide a good, broad-spectrum education and add to the sophistication of the psychiatric reader concerning the trends in the law and its oft-dubious rationale."�Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
"Throughout, these articles are well written, thoroughly researched, and carefully edited. I would recommend these volumes to every forensic psychiatrist who wants to keep up with the field and to every general psychiatrist who would like to be on the cutting edge and obtain an expert perspective on the major issues in forensic psychiatry as they effect daily practice. These volumes are surely of value in educating practitioners not toward becoming defensive in their practice, but to enable them to be reasonable and thoughtful in their care of their patients."�Bulletin of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law
