This trusted, authoritative reference for mental health clinicians and students is now in a thoroughly revised third edition. Using vivid case scenarios, Allan Edward Barsky explains when and why clinicians may be called to participate in legal proceedings. He describes and illustrates best practices for record keeping, responding to subpoenas, preparing reports, giving testimony as a fact witness or expert witness, managing ethical dilemmas, and reducing malpractice risks. Appendices feature reproducible agreements and other sample documentation. Readers can download and print these materials at the companion website, which also offers additional case examples, learning activities, and resources.
