Law

The group has recently authored a book about stalking, and a book about the legal cases which have changed the face of mental health treatment. The group is currently working on a book about family violence and murder. Current committee on Psychiatry and the Law members include: Jacob Appel; Peter Ash; Susan Hatters Friedman (chair); Richard Frierson; Debbie Giorgi-Guarnieri; Jacqueline Landess (Ginsberg fellow); Richard Martinez; Debra Pinals; Phillip Resnick; and Sandy Simpson.
