Focusing on the clinical and legal issues at the interface of the mental health and criminal justice systems, this monograph examines the identification of mentally disordered offenders by the criminal justice system, the legal theories that justify the diversion of offenders from standard disposition; the practical, ethical and theoretical issues that are of special concern to the clinicians who must diagnose, treat and care for the class; and the emerging legal issues. The book closes with an appraisal of the possibilities for reform.
