This text provides a comprehensive treatment of the legal issues surrounding the right to refuse mental health treatment. Professor Winick lays the groundwork by examining six different mental health treatment techniques. Presented according to the concept of ""intrusiveness"", from least intrusive to most intrusive, Winick describes the following interventions: psychotherapy; behaviour therapy; psychotropic medication; electroconvulsive therapy; electronic stimulation of the brain; and psychosurgery. To this intervention spectrum, Winick then offers a legal analysis of the issues surrounding the right to refuse mental health treatment. Drawing from various sources of law - and primarily from constitutional law - he explores his topic from an exacting and mulitfaceted legal perspective.
