Cases on Mental Health Law in Texas
($35.50 + shipping and tax at checkout)

J. Ray Hays, JD, PhD, Carl N. Edwards, JD, PhD, Ollie J. Seay, PhD


This is a casebook of judicial decisions that have interpreted the work done by mental health professionals, primarily from Texas, but also from other jurisdictions that have application to practice in our state.  The book is targeted to students and practitioners.  Students enrolled in a training program in mental health, by reading these cases, will develop a better understanding of the issues courts find important in our practices.  Practitioners can obtain guidance on decisions in critical treatment points with patients and their families by reading how other professionals have proceeded with similar situations and how the courts interpret their actions.  These cases were selected to provide not only information about how the courts direct practice, but also for their reasoning in their legal holdings that will inform students and practitioners, and help them to appreciate the issues that courts consider in guiding public policy through their decisions.
