Rethinking risk assessment : the MacArthur study of mental disorder and violence by John Monahan( )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The presumed link between mental disorder and violence has been the driving force behind mental health law and policy for centuries. Legislature, courts, and the public have come to expect that mental health professionals will protect them from violent acts by persons with mental disorders. Yet for three decades research has shown that clinicians unaided assessments of "dangerousness" are barely better than chance. Rethinking Risk Assessment: The MacArthur Study of Mental Disorder and Violence tells the story of a pioneering investigation that challenges preconceptions about the frequency and nature of violence among persons with mental disorders - and suggests an innovative approach to predicting its occurrence. The authors of this massive project - the largest ever undertaken on the topic - demonstrate how clinicians can use a "decision tree" to identify groups of patients at very low and very high risk for violence. This dramatic new finding, and its implications for the everyday clinical practice of risk assessment and risk management, is thoroughly described in this remarkable and long-anticipated volume. Taken to heart, its message will change the way clinicians, judges, and others who must deal with persons who are mentally ill and may be violent will do their work."--Jacket

"[This book offers an] overview of how American courts use research and testimony from the social sciences in reaching their decisions. It is organized around Daubert v. Merrill Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the United States Supreme Court's landmark decision on scientific evidence. New Daubert-based cases are integrated throughout the text. The ninth edition offers a completely revised and up-to-date treatment of the increasingly critical role social science research plays in both federal and state judicial opinions."--

Mental disorder, work disability, and the law( Book )

5 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A barrage of "handbooks" and "resource manuals" aimed at employers and legal practitioners on the employment rights of people with disabilities has begun to appear. Until now, however, there has been no serious book-length scholarly treatment of how mental disorder can affect work, how work can affect mental disorder, and the role of law in addressing employment discrimination based on mental rather than physical disability. In Mental Disorder, Work Disability and the Law, the editors bring together original work by leading scholars who have studied mental disorder and work disability from the fields of sociology, psychology, psychiatry, law, and economics. The authors' contributions build upon one another to create the first integrated account of the important policy issues at stake when law deals with the rights of mentally disordered citizens to work when they can, and to receive benefits when they are unable. This book will be of great value to scholars in law and the mental health professions, and to policy makers and the administrators of disability programs
Coercion and aggressive community treatment : a new frontier in mental health law by Deborah L Dennis( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forced hospitalization of people with mental disorders has long been a critical issue in the mental health services. Coercion and Aggressive Community Treatment is the first sustained description and analysis of what happens when `aggressive' treatment becomes `coerced' treatment. Mental health professionals poignantly discuss the tension they feel between wanting to do everything to treat desperately ill people and the need to respect the rights of these same people who want to make their own decisions, even if this means forgoing treatment

Adjudicative competence : the MacArthur studies by Norman Godfrey Poythress( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adjudicative competence remains an important topic of research and practice in psychology and law. In the five sections of Adjudicative Competence: The MacArthur Studies, the authors present not only a summary of the research of the MacArthur studies on competence but also an examination of the underlying theoretical work of Professor Richard Bonnie. It is the first publication to encapsulate the scope and significance of both the studies themselves and Bonnie's contributions. There is no other source available that addresses this range of topics. Given its breadth and scope, this book will be a "must have" for forensic mental health professionals, an important volume for lawyers, and a vital academic reference work

Violence risk assessment and risk communication, 1996-1998( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This data collection is designed to examine factors influencing the validity of violence risk assessment and risk communication, and it covers three surveys: (1) 1996 Clinical Judgements Survey, (2) 1997 Dangerousness Survey, and (3) 1998 Survey. In all three surveys, forensic psychologists and psychiatrists were shown case summaries of patients hospitalized with mental disorders and were asked to judge the likelihood that the patient would harm someone within six months after discharge from the hospital. The respondents also judged whether the patients posed a high risk, medium risk, or low risk of harming someone after discharge, how closely the mental health center is recommended to monitor the patient's condition, and the likelihood of rehospitalization. Other background information were collected regarding the respondents' assessments distribution, average number of patients per week, and opinions on survey formats. Demographic on respondents includes age, gender, year receiving the doctor's degree, and whether they work for forensic facility full-time or consult for courts
