ON YOUR SIDE: PROTECTING YOUR MENTAL HEALTH PRACTICE FROM LITIGATION is essential reading for all psychologists, psychiatrists, and other people-helpers. It explains how to avoid — or, if worst comes to worst, endure and triumph over — malpractice suits, license board accusations and professional association ethics cases. Favorably reviewed in The National Psychologist, The Independent Practitioner, and J. Forensic Psychology, and recommended by attorneys and practitioners alike, this one volume gives the inside story not available anywhere else. It’s replete with case histories and insider information.
