Robert I. Simon, a prolific author in the field of forensic psychiatry, once again teams up with attorney Daniel W. Shuman, this time to create a manual that addresses the most common legal issues in treating individuals with emotional and behavioral problems. The Clinical Manual of Psychiatry and Law is an excellent resource for any clinician—not just the mental health professional—who finds himself or herself with questions regarding legal issues surrounding the care of patients. This volume will help clinicians develop a collaborative, rather than an adversarial, relationship with the law.
