Sommario/riassunto: Chronicles a relatively new field that has developed around the goals of protecting the rights and needs of people with disabilities, defining the proper sphere of individualization in criminal justice, and drawing boundaries between science and morality in decision making. Leading specialists from the field's many domains are brought together, including lawyers, health policy specialists, forensic psychologists, law professors, psychiatrists, and sociologists, who share the theoretical insights and empirical research of significant developments in mental health law and policy in the past 25 yrs. Particularly notable are chapters that examine shifts in attitudes toward the use of human participants in research; whether the statutory and regulatory framework of the increasingly privatized public mental health services system adequately protects patients' rights; how notions of therapeutic jurisprudence influence the behavior of judges and lawyers; and the means by which judges, lawyers, and clinicians can work from a more therapeutic frame of reference in the context of civil commitment proceedings. It is maintained that this volume will be useful to specialists in law, psychology, and psychiatry who are involved in mental health law and policy.
