Leon VandeCreek, Samuel Knapp
The original edition of this work quickly became required reading for all clinicians and graduate students because it clearly explained the important "duty to warn" implications of the court's landmark 1976 Tarasoff court case and provided practical recommendations for dealing with patients who might harm others.This revised third edition adds information on recent court rulings and statutory regulations and offers recommendations for dealing with the increasingly complex ethical, legal, and clinical issues that have arisen since the original decision. Although the primary focus is on the management of homicidal patients, the authors extend their discussion to the management of HIV-positive patients, suicidal patients, child abusing parents, impaired drivers, patient disclosures of past crimes, and psychotherapist liability for wrongful civil commitments and releases. Discusses clinical interventions and considerations to minimize liability risks while still providing quality treatment. References the most recent research findings and court cases.Leon VandeCreek is the author of 'Tarasoff and Beyond: Legal and Clinical Considerations in the Treatment of Life-Endangering Patients (Practitioner's Resource Series)', published 2001 under ISBN 9781568870700 and ISBN 1568870701.
