Case law evidence shows that mental health professionals (MHPS) have lost cases in court because they based their professional action on the wrong definition of legal or ethical terminology. Many have also been sanctioned or their license revoked because of professional actions arising from a lack of clear understanding of these terminologies. This dictionary confronts this problem by providing MHPS with clear, concise, and functional definitions of many legal and ethical terminologies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Ahia...finds a niche with his dictionary...Summing Up: Essential. * CHOICE *
Only a scholar who is both a mental health professional and lawyer could have produced a reference book as clear and accurate as this one. Dr. Ahia has once again contributed a valuable resource to the literature on legal and ethical issues in mental health. This dictionary will be a useful resource for counselors, social workers, psychologists, and other mental health professionals as they struggle to balance their responsibilities to clients and to society. -- Theodore P. Remley, Jr., J.D., Ph.D., LPC, University of New Orleans
