Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Both the format and content of this book are designed to remove the mystery and anxiety that many clinicians associate with lawyers, courts, and judges. As the authors state in their introduction, 'At the heart of this book is our belief that good patient care and knowledge of the law go hand in hand. . . . Far from restricting or inhibiting clinical practice, knowing the essentials of Florida mental health law will free treaters from much undue - and unwarranted - anxiety about their legal rights and duties. . . . Such freedom will allow clinicians to concentrate on what they do best and enjoy most - treat patients.

Synopsis:

An indispensable book for both student and practicing clinicians, as well as for lawyers who want a better understanding of this interesting and ever-changing field, explains in a straightforward and user-friendly manner the laws most relevant to mental health practice in Florida.
