Makes you think Excellent book to get you thinking about various aspects of the law and mental health. Since this is not written to any specific state you will have to do some work and look up the laws in your state and the ethical guidelines for your specific area of practice.This had some excellent information regarding informed consent. I developed a better idea of steps I need to take to protect myself and the client.
