This volume equips psychiatrists, psychiatric residents and other mental health care professionals with a thorough overview of the clinical management of legal issues in psychiatry. The author encourages psychiatrists to transform the law from adversary to working partners, a partnership that can be turned to clinical account for the benefit of patients.;Beginning with an overview of clinical psychiatry and the law, this pocket guide covers every essential aspect of how law affects the practise of contemporary psychiatry: the doctor-patient relationship, confidentiality and testimonial privilege, informed consent and the right to refuse treatment, psychiatric treatment, seclusion and restraint, involuntary hospitalization, the suicidal patient, the potentially violent patient, and therapist-patient sex.
