Overview

Law & Mental Health Professionals®: Pennsylvania provides a thorough review of the laws in the state of Pennsylvania as they relate to the mental health profession. Identifying legal topics affecting mental health practices, this resource addresses rulings about licensing; forms of business practice; insurance reimbursements and deductions for services; privacy of professional information; practice laws related to families, juveniles, civil matters, and criminal matters; and limitations on and liability for practice.

The authors present and integrate information from the Pennsylvania Constitution, state statutes, regulations of administrative agencies, appellate court decisions, and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to complete this volume. The laws taken from these sources are expressed with minimal legal jargon, making this reference maximally accessible to those outside of the legal profession.
