In this second edition the author emphasizes what people in the helping professions need to know about the law, so they can avoid, as he puts it, the ""land mines"" and understand how their treatment decisions are likely to have legal consequences. This book provides some coverage of criminal law, for instance how it relates to the criminally insane, but its primary focus is on how civil law, and particularly family law, influences clinical settings in the mental health profession.
