Psychiatry in Law/Law in Psychiatry is a sweeping, up-to-date examination of the infiltration of psychiatry into law and the growing intervention of law into psychiatry. Unmatched in breadth and coverage, and thoroughly updated from the first edition, this comprehensive text and reference is an essential resource for psychiatry residents, law students, and practitioners alike.
Building upon his landmark work, Psychiatry and Law (1973), which received the American Psychiatric Association's prestigious Manfred Guttmacher Award, Slovenko provides a critical exposition of the various practices and basic premises of the interplay between the two professions while also discussing topics such as:
evidence in the judicial process
psychiatric expert testimony
competency to stand trial
hospitalization of the mentally ill
undue familiarity, and
the regulation of psychotherapy.
Unmatched in breadth and coverage, this comprehensive book and reference is an essential resource for current practitioners, psychiatry residents, law students, and physicians alike.
"...provides a very thorough overview. The reference notes at the end of each chapter provide insight into the legal, professional and personal points that are made, frequently making the book read more like an interesting novel." -- American Journal of Forensic Psychiatry
"A book that anyone serious about law and psychiatry should have...it should be read cover to cover." -- American Journal of Psychiatry
"Ralph Slovenko has written a dynamic textbook that will not collect dust on your bookshelf. If you are a practicing forensic psychiatrist, read it and reference it. If you are a forensic resident, add it to your reading list. If you are a general psychiatrist or general psychiatry resident, the malpractice chapters speak to the heart of your everyday work." - Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law Volume 31, 2003
