Appelbaum.   Psychiatric Intensive Care by M. Dominic Beer, User and Carer Issues, Legal Issues and National Standards and Good Practice in Psychiatric Intensive Care. This book should be read by all mental health team members working with disturbed psychiatric patients on an inpatient basis, as well as by management staff responsible for establishing 5/5(1). Forensic psychiatrists are invaluable contributors to the functioning of the legal system in civil and criminal cases alike. As skilled as the court will be in interpreting laws, conducting trials, and ensuring appropriate verdicts or settlements, it has no real way to determine the presence or absence of required mental capacity, the degree of mental suffering, or the requirements for future.   1. Nature of civil vs. criminal commitment. 2. Balancing ethical consdierations vs. legal considerations. 3. Role of psychologists in legal matters.

    Current Legal Issues, like its sister volume Current Legal Problems, is based upon an annual colloquium held at University College London. Each year, leading scholars from around the world gather to discuss the relationship between law and another discipline of thought.
