Summary:
"Laws Affecting Clinical Practice is a comprehensive, concise, readily understandable resource outlining the legal obligations and responsibilities of mental health professionals (MHPs). Identifying legal topics affecting mental health practices and services, Sales, Miller, and Hall address a wide range of legal topics, including licensing; privacy of professional information; practice laws related to families, juveniles, civil matters, and criminal matters; and limitations on and liability for practice. The laws surveyed are expressed with minimal legal jargon, making this volume maximally accessible to those outside of the legal profession. Laws Affecting Clinical Practice is an essential introduction to clinically relevant laws for MHPs, as well as graduate students training to become MHPs. It will guide readers to become intelligent consumers of legal services. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)"--Jacket.
