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.

Depression is amorphous. It defies easy generalization, and eludes medical and legal categories. Is it part of the self, or its predator? Can a sufferer be held responsible for their actions? This edited collection provides a holistic study of a protean illness. If the law is to regulate the lives of those who suffer from depression, it is vital that lawyers understand the condition. Drawing upon a wide-ranging expertise, this volume looks at depression from four viewpoints: that of the sufferer, the clinician, the ethicist, and the lawyer. Topics covered include the cultural history of depression; causes, epidemiology, and diagnosis; the autonomy debate; criminal responsibility; public health law; depression in the workplace; depression and children; and assisted suicide. First-hand accounts from sufferers are followed by contributions from clinicians who say what depression is, outline its demography and therapeutic options, and indicate the legal and ethical problems that trouble them the most. The essays then go on to explore legal and ethical questions in depth. This collection is essential reading for lawyers seeking a broader understanding of depression, and non-lawyers seeking an insight into the difficulty law has engaging with the condition.
