In their latest collaboration, Clinical Manual of Psychiatry and Law, noted forensic psychiatrist Dr. Robert Simon and legal scholar Daniel Shuman, both recipients of the Guttmacher Award, have created a unique, practical reference to enable psychiatrists to transform the impact of the law on their clinical practices from an adversary to a working partner. In lieu of scare tactics or horror stories, Dr. Simon and Professor Shuman clearly explain not only what the law requires and why but how best to integrate its requirements to enhance clinical practice and reduce the risk of successful tort claims. They have written a clear, comprehensible, and accessible volume that will guide practitioners through the thickets of the law and benefit their clinical practices. This volume covers a wide range of topics, from confidentiality, privilege, informed consent and the right to refuse treatment to treatment boundaries, involuntary hospitalization, seclusion and restraint, management of violent as well as suicidal patients, and the additional requirements which apply to the treatment and evaluation of minors or persons with mental disabilities. It also includes the tort (i.e., negligence, intentional harm) claims that arise from a breach of the law's expectations. The content reflects the latest legal precedents concerning such topics as: Establishment of the doctor-patient relationship and liability for damages caused by its breach, including new rulings governing confidentiality and testimonial privileges Case law regarding informed consent -- especially the issue of competency when dealing with minors or persons with mental disabilities New rules and regulations restricting the use of seclusion and restraint Guides to the most recent laws regarding involuntary hospitalization and emergency commitment Insights into recent state court decisions concerning disclosures by therapists of threats of harm by patients against others, including such issues as conflicts between the duty to maintain confidentiality and the duty to protect Reviews of recent legislation proscribing sexual misconduct or prosecuting sexual exploitation of patients under existing rape or sexual assault laws Clinicians will find this wealth of knowledge immediately practical and lawyers will appreciate its in-depth treatment of complex psychiatric issues. With extensive references and a glossary of legal terms, Clinical Manual of Psychiatry and Law deserves a place among the top legal references for mental health professionals.

It was not until the mid-twentieth century that childhood achieved recognition as a developmental stage separate from adulthood. Despite the legal protections (e.g., child labor laws) for children that have been established since then, we're still relatively early in the process of discovering childhood's legal and forensic contexts.Taking us a quantum leap forward is this practical textbook, a step-by-step guide that walks clinicians through the often-confusing world of depositions and courtroom testimony. The editors--pioneers in child and adolescent forensic psychiatry--have dramatically expanded their earlier textbook ( Clinical Handbook of Child Psychiatry and the Law), bringing clarity and coherence to these complex and often highly charged clinical and legal issues by emphasizing evidence-based research within an easy-to-read outline format. Structured around clinical case examples, countertransference pitfalls, and guidelines for action, Part 1, Basics reviews the history and principles of law (forensic ethics, psychological testing, and testifying in court) of forensic psychiatry and provides a framework for approaching forensic evaluations (including vicarious traumatization). Part II, Child Custody talks about how to approach child custody disputes (including current social dilemmas that pose ethical and clinical questions for the forensic examiner), evaluations and assessments, foster care and adoption, termination of parental rights, and transracial/transcultural adoption in the United States. Part III, Child Abuse presents new information on the developmental aspects of memory in children, the reliability and suggestibility of children's statements, interview techniques, Munchausen syndrome by proxy, sexual harassment in school-age children, and child pornography. Part IV, Youth Violence details how violence affects the child's developing brain (setting the stage for conduct disorders, dissociative disorders, and posttraumatic stress disorder), assesses the risks of carrying weapons, and summarizes youth risk factors, common evaluation pitfalls, and prevention and intervention programs. Part V, Juvenile Offenders highlights the differences between the content and application of juvenile and adult law, addressing the waiver of juveniles to adult court, effective early detection and intervention programs, and techniques for helping the especially problematic sexually aggressive youth. Part VI, Legal Issues reviews the treatment of minors, the current state (including recent court decisions) of psychiatric commitment of minors, special issues for mentally retarded children, and psychic trauma and civil litigation. Even clinicians who plan never to set foot in court will want to have this reference on hand. Rich in both historical detail and practical guidance, this remarkable collection by top authors and clinicians in the field is the definitive reference (and preparation guide for board certification in forensic psychiatry) for practitioners, forensic examiners, attorneys and judges, and trainees in child and adolescent psychiatry and psychology.

As President of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law (AAPL), it is a pleasure to write this foreword. Dr. Richard Rosner deserves full credit for helping AAPL pursue its educational goals by publishing a series of books. Consumerism and the civil rights movement have dramatically changed the practice of American psychiatry over the last 2 decades. Extensive legal regulation now makes it necessary for both general and forensic psychiatrists to keep abreast of changing laws. The contents of Volume II of Critical Issues in American Psychiatry and the Law demonstrate Dr. Rosner's gift for selecting and editing important theoretical and practical articles. This volume addresses a broad range of forensic issues. The pen dulum-like swings of laws regarding civil commitment and insanity are clearly illuminated by Dr. Quen's contribution, "Violence, Psychiatry, and the Law." A review of historical psychiatric testimony supporting insanity defenses on the bases of homicidal mania, moral insanity, and phrenological evidence should make modern forensic psychiatrists hum ble. However, some of our colleagues continue to testify that defendants were unable to refrain from criminal conduct because of CT evidence of schizophrenia, pathological gambling, or the effects of junk food. Excellent theoretical discussions are presented by Dr. Macklin ("A Philosophical Perspective on Ethics and Forensic Psychiatry") and Mr. Hughes ("Legal Aspects of Predicting Dangerousness"). These chapters present thorough, up-to-date, scholarly analyses of complex issues from the vantage point of non psychiatrists.

The prevalence of psychiatry in popular culture has coincided with the rise of amateur "armchair" psychiatrists -- and this often serves to muddy the waters about what, exactly, the field entails. For all the misconceptions, though, psychiatry is an endlessly fascinating field, charged with defining and recognizing mental illnesses, identifying methods for treating them, and discovering their causes and developing measures to prevent them. Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry dispels common misunderstandings and delves into what makes this such an exciting discipline. Now in its seventh edition, this bestselling guide is organized along the lines of DSM-5® and has been updated to reflect changes to the manual, including new medications and therapies. Rigorous in scope, Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry is nevertheless accessible and conversational in tone. It employs fascinating case vignettes, clinical pearls, self-assessment questions, and tables and figures as it offers a summary of: The DSM-5® diagnostic system The neurobiological basis of psychiatry Interviewing and assessment -- including specific questions that patients can be asked The various psychiatric disorders Legal issues Psychiatric emergencies Treatment Initially developed for medical students and beginning residents, this guide is also a valuable reference for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, social workers, and psychologists. And because it has been edited to align with the Pocket Guide to Psychiatric Practice, it makes an excellent companion piece to that volume, as well.
