Format: Hardcover
Although Bruce J. Winick does not include a preface in THE RIGHT TO REFUSE MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT, it is obvious that the appropriate audience for this book includes judges, lawyers (both defense and plaintiff), psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, and counselors. THE RIGHT TO REFUSE MENTAL HEALTH TREATMENT can be best described as a comprehensive assessment of the decision making process regarding involuntary clients, patients and, of course, prisoners. With 20 chapters divided into three sections, it offers a significant contribution both to law and to clinical mental health intervention. The sections include:
* Mental Health Treatment Techniques (seven chapters) * Constitutional Limitations on Involuntary Mental Health and Correctional Treatment (eight chapters) * Evaluating and Implementing the Right to Refuse Treatment (four chapters)
Winick is an excellent writer! Regardless of one's discipline (law or mental health), one will find this book a worthwhile asset in one's library.
When Winick initially introduces a complex legal concept in one chapter and the same concept must be introduced later, he employs one of two effective strategies. He either writes a summary of his earlier work or he cites where the reader can find more details of the legal concept. This strategy is critically important and useful for this type of book. For example, many people will not read this monograph from cover to cover, but rather read sections that are needed to achieve a necessary goal for a client. Winick's artful style is particularly beneficial for this type of reader. In addition, the index is excellent! It includes both a "table of authority" (cases) and a subject index.

The Yin Yang theory of the universe is derived from brains stoned on drugs, probably opium.

western civilization preferred alcohol until recently.

alcohol depletes the body of magnesium which is needed for proper immune function.
