About the Author:

G. Andrew H. Benjamin, J.D., Ph.D. is Affiliate Professor of law at the University of Washington and Director of the Parenting Evaluation/Training Program. While working with families engaged in high-conflict litigation and lawyers/law students suffering from various mental health and drug abuse problems, he was named "Professional of the Year" by the Washington State Bar Association's Family Law Section. He was elected President of the Washington State Psychological Association and later his WSPA colleagues created an award named after him for "outstanding and tireless contributions." He was honored by the Puyallup Indian Nation's Health Authority for serving as a "modern day warrior fighting the mental illnesses, drug-alcohol addictions" of the people served by the Nation's program. The APA gave him the Heiser Award in recognition of his record of public service and advocacy. He has 41 peer reviewed articles in psychology, law, and psychiatry journals. He also is the author of two other books published by APA: Law and Mental Health Professionals: Washington (1995,1998) and Family Evaluation in Custody Litigation: Reducing Risks of Ethical Infractions and Malpractice (2003).

Elizabeth Reynolds Welfel is Co-Director of Training in Counseling Psychology and Professor at Cleveland State University where she has been teaching graduate students in counseling and counseling psychology for 20 years. Prior to her appointment at Cleveland State, she was on the counseling psychology faculty at Boston College. She has authored numerous articles on the ethics of professional practice and her book, Ethics in Counseling and Psychotherapy: Standards, Research and Emerging Issues, is in its third edition. Her current research projects focus on ethical issues in the use of technology in professional practice and psychologists' understanding of their legal responsibilities with violent clients. Along with Dr. Elliott Ingersoll, she has co-edited the Mental Health Desk Reference. Her third book, The Counseling Process, co-authored with Lewis Patterson, is in its 6th edition. She has conducted numerous continuing education programs on professional ethics across the nation. Dr. Welfel received her doctorate in Counseling Psychology from the University of Minnesota in 1979 and has been a licensed psychologist in Ohio since 1986.

James L. Werth, Jr. currently is Professor of Psychology and Director of the Psy.D. Program in Counseling Psychology at Radford University and is a licensed psychologist in Virginia, although the first part of this book was completed while he was an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at The University of Akron. In additional to ethical and legal matters, his primary areas of research and practice are HIV disease and end-of-life issues. He has written/edited/co-edited several books and special journal issues on the latter topic. He served on the American Psychological Association's Ad Hoc Committee on Legal Issues and Ad Hoc Committee on End-of-Life Issues and currently serves as the federal Advocacy Coordinator for the Society of Counseling Psychology (Division 17 of the APA). He received his doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Auburn University in 1995, a Master of Legal Studies from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln in 1999, and served as the APA's HIV Policy Congressional Fellow in the office of Senator Ron Wyden (D - OR) from 1999-2000.

Book Description American Psychological Association, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Psychologists and other mental health professionals rightfully experience significant anxiety regarding their duty to protect when working with potentially dangerous individuals who are at risk of harming others or themselves. In fact, a recent study suggests that 75 per cent are misinformed about their legal duties to such clients. The Duty to Protect dispels myths and provides clinicians, supervisors, and trainers with a comprehensive resource addressing the situations where a duty to protect may apply. The duty itself is defined and described, as are risk assessment steps and interventions to reduce risk.The chapters are written by leading scientist - practitioners to promote best practices in some of the most ethically and legally challenging areas encountered by practitioners. They discuss the legal and ethical foundations of the duty to protect and the duty to warn; professional ethics codes in the U.S. and internationally; and, risk assessment to others in cases involving threats of homicide, intimate partner violence, stalking, the transfer of communicable diseases, and impairment while operating heavy machinery or motor vehicles. Threats of harm to the self are also discussed in chapters that address suicide, self-injury, and end-of-life issues.This book is a comprehensive resource that will assist readers in understanding their options and obligations and therefore improve the care they provide in some of the most stressful and potentially dangerous situations faced by mental health providers.
