Clinical Supervision: Legal, Ethical. and Risk Management Issues - Clinical supervision is an increasingly important area in mental health, medicine and the helping professions in general. Formal professional classroom instruction in mental health and social services is typically followed by mandatory hours or even years of supervised clinical placements and, in some cases, even post licensure. It is typically under the tutelage and supervision of an experienced practitioner that professionals, regardless of their discipline, learn the skills necessary to become competent, ethical and effective members of the helping professions. Clinical Supervision will attempt to identify and review many of the common problems and challenges of clinical supervision that occur in mental health and social service settings. Ethical, legal and risk-management issues will be identified and reviewed, along with potential solutions. The roles and responsibilities of the supervisor and supervisee will be examined and techniques to define goals and objectives of supervision reviewed. Common difficulties and specific problem situations that may occur in supervision are reviewed and discussed. This book assists in making distinctions between administrative and clinical supervision, areas of potential overlap or conflict, and potential difficulties with boundary issues. Specific supervisor competencies and the qualities and characteristics of effective supervisors will be reviewed. Clinical Supervision: Legal, Ethical, and Risk Management Issues is a must for any mental health and social service professional with staff reporting to them.

The recognition of positive rights and the growing impact of human rights principles has recently orchestrated a number of reforms in mental health law, bringing increasing entitlement to an array of health services. In this book, Penelope Weller considers the relationship between human rights and mental health law, and the changing attitudes which have led to the recognition of a right to demand treatment internationally. Weller discusses the ability of those with mental health problems to use advance directives to make a choice about what treatment they receive in the future, should they still be unable to decide for themselves. Focusing on new perspectives offered by the Conventions on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), Weller explores mental health law from a variety of international perspectives including: Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, where policies differ depending on whether you are in England and Wales, or Scotland. These case studies indicate how human rights perspectives are shifting mental health law from a constricted focus upon treatment refusal, towards a recognition of positive rights. The book covers topics including: refusing treatment new approaches in human rights international perspectives in mental health law the right to demand treatment. The text will appeal to legal and mental health professionals as well as academics studying mental health law, and policy makers.
