From Courtroom to Clinic

Paperback edition released 28/02/2019

by Peter (Emory University, Atlanta) Ash

From Courtroom to Clinic Synopsis

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.
