Clinical Handbook of Psychiatry and the Law, 4th ed

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

The Clinical Handbook of Psychiatry and the Law has become
a popular textbook and reference book for psychiatry residents,
forensic psychiatry fellows, and psychiatrists in clinical
practice. The authors have published 4 editions over 25 years,
which reflects the rather rapid growth of the importance of and
interest in this topic. Both Dr. Appelbaum and Dr. Gutheil are
prolific writers, and this book collects their experience and wisdom
into a handy volume that is densely packed with useful
information.
