Summary
  • "The Right to Refuse Treatment" [analyzes] the legal issues raised by involuntary treatment. It provides a systematic analysis of the mental health treatment techniques and the constitutional issues implicated by involuntary treatment. The 1st part of the book constructs a continuum of the intrusiveness along which the various treatment techniques--psychotherapy, behavior therapy, psychotropic medication, electroconvulsive therapy, electronic stimulation of the brain, and psychosurgery--may be ranked. In Part II, the author discusses the constitutional and other legal limitations on governmentally imposed, involuntary mental health and correctional treatment including statutory, regulatory, and international and tort law limits. The governmental interests that might justify involuntary treatment are analyzed, and 2 . . . limitations on the means to achieve these interests are examined: the therapeutic appropriateness principle and the least restrictive alternative principle. In Part III, the author analyzes issues related to the evaluation and implementation of the right to refuse mental health treatment
  • The issues discussed in this book are [related to] psychiatry, clinical psychology, psychophamacology, bioethics and the law. Moreover, they reflect the traditionally different perspectives of the principal professional disciplines involved--law, psychiatry, and psychology.
