Mental disability, violence, and future dangerousness : myths behind the presumption of guilt by John Parry( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 985 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Individuals with severe mental illness are greatly over-represented in the U.S. criminal justice system, and the need for policymakers to address this growing problem is paramount. In Mental Disability, Violence and Future Dangerousness: Myths Behind the Presumption of Guilt, Parry provides a multidisciplinary analysis of the laws and mental health policies that affect individuals with mental illness. As one of the foremost authorities on mental disability law, Parry provides comprehensive coverage of the relevant laws and social science research, and he offers his characteristically insightful and detailed analysis. This book will surely prove indispensable to legal professionals, mental health practitioners, and policymakers, and it should serve as a blueprint for change. -- David DeMatteo, JD, PhD, director, JD/PhD Program in Law & Psychology, associate professor of Psychology & Law, Drexel University This is an elegant, tightly-reasoned, provocative re-examination of the misleading ways that predictions of future dangerousness and biased 'expert testimony' have poisoned the criminal justice system. It exposes the reasons that undermine the fundamental fairness of what our system should be. It is the most important book to tackle these issues in years. -- Michael L. Perlin, professor, director of International Mental Disability Law Reform Project, and director, Online Mental Disability Law Program New York Law School Mental Disability, Violence and Future Dangerousness: Myths Behind the Presumption of Guilt is a passionate and articulate indictment of how America cares for its citizens who have serious mental disorders. John Weston Parry meticulously chronicles the serial debacles produced by decades of fear-driven mental health policy-making. Some will disagree with the boldness of Parry's remedial proposals, but all will benefit from engaging in the crucial conversations that this important book will unleash. -- John Monahan, Shannon Distinguished Professor of Law, Psychology, and Psychiatry, University of Virginia John Parry's new book is an ambitious and successful effort to integrate civil and criminal mental disability law. His review of the cases decided over the last four decades offers a valuable perspective on the case law, and is thoroughly grounded with a sensitivity to the realities of life for individuals who have (or are said to have) mental disabilities. -- James W. Ellis, Distinguished University Professor and Professor of Law, University of New Mexico

The athlete's dilemma : sacrificing health for wealth and fame by John Parry( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sports provide people around the world with unmatched entertainment, from the excitement of victory to the agony of defeat. Unfortunately, it also has become painfully clear that the agony of sports goes well beyond athletes losing games or competitions. Playing through concussions, the abuse of pain medicine, the use of performance-enhancing substances, and other health-related issues have become a constant reminder that being a professional athlete can be as dangerous as it is lucrative. In The Athlete's Dilemma: Sacrificing Health for Wealth and Fame, John Weston Parry examines the health-related transgressions and hot-topic issues in America's top spectator sports, particularly in football, baseball, hockey, soccer, cycling, tennis, and Olympic competitions. Parry delves into the unique health risks that pertain to each individual sport and scrutinizes how the various leagues and organizations have handled these issues. Controversies and scandals surrounding elite athletes are also included, highlighting the need for changes in how sports are governed and regulated in the United States and worldwide. From football and soccer players returning to the field too soon after concussions to Olympic athletes using performance-enhancing substances, The Athlete's Dilemma provides a broad perspective on the health risks prevalent in sports and what can be done to reduce these risks in the future. Accessibly written yet carefully researched, this book will be of interest to athletes of all levels, sports fans, academics, and health professionals."--

The report offers a detailed review of five major areas of the law: antidiscrimination, hiv testing and medical treatment, confidentiality and provider liability, isolation and involuntary civil commitment, and federal benefit and entitlement programs. These areas are discussed in relation to topics such as housing and residential facilities, health care, child welfare services, day care and education, vocational training, and employment.
