Description

Slobogin, Hafemeister, and Mossman's Law and the Mental Health System, Civil and Criminal Aspects, 6th offers a wide-ranging, in-depth coverage of how the legal system responds to challenges posed by persons with mental disorders. It features a sophisticated interdisciplinary treatment of the law and literature relating to regulation of the mental health professions, the government’s authority to deprive people with mental disorders of their liberty and property and its obligation to provide support for people with mental disorders and protect them from discrimination. The new edition is enhanced by the addition of two new authors, Thomas L. Hafemeister, J.D., Ph.D., and Douglas Mossman, M.D. They join Christopher Slobogin, J.D., LL.M, and Ralph Reisner.
