A Lawyer's Guide to Understanding Psychiatry

By John S. Carbone, MD

A Lawyer's Guide to Understanding Psychiatry focuses on providing a basic understanding of, and working familiarity with, the situations and terminology lawyers encounter in dealing with patients and clinicians. This information enables lawyers to frame better questions and more precisely identify facts pertinent to the case.

The book begins with an overview of both Western Psychiatry and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. Subsequent chapters cover:

  • Pursuing the diagnosis
  • Neuroses and psychoses
  • Personality disorders
  • Psychotropic medications and other treatment options
  • Divination of future dangerousness
