Providing a unique insight into the decision making processes of Mental Health Review Tribunals and of the motivations and aspiriations of the patients and psychiatrists appearing before them, this book assesses the process of decision making from the initial application by a patient, through descriptions of tribunal hearings, to an examination of their deliberations. It uses empirical data from individual cases to explain the inherent limitations of legal safeguards functioning in therapeutic contexts.
