Research indicates that, in comparison to professionals and University students in other disciplines, lawyers and law students may be at greater risk of experiencing high levels of psychological distress. There is also a large body of literature supporting an association between stress, anxiety and depression and unhealthy eating. This article reports on the results of a study of Australian legal professionals and law students that evidence a positive association between psychological distress; disordered eating, weight and shape concerns; and maladaptive eating habits in lawyers and law students...

The French Mental Health Law of 5 July 2011 stipulates that psychiatric patients can be hospitalized in five different ways. Three types of admission for involuntary treatment are defined under "admission at the request of a third party". The first is "psychiatric care at the request of a third party", followed by two "exceptional" admission measures in the case of an emergency ("emergency psychiatric care at the request of a third party") and imminent danger ("psychiatric care in the case of imminent danger")...

Voula Marinos, Lisa Whittingham
It is generally recognized that persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are at greater risk than the general population when they encounter the criminal justice system due to vulnerabilities such as cognition, memory and language (Jones, 2007). To date, little evidence has been generated regarding best practice to support persons with IDD in the criminal justice system, specifically the courtroom. Various models of problem-solving courts have developed across Canada to divert cases composed of complex human social problems to more appropriate community-based treatment and supports...

India's new mental health legislation, the Mental Healthcare Act, 2017, was commenced on 29 May 2018 and seeks explicitly to comply with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. It grants a legally binding right to mental healthcare to over 1.3 billion people, one sixth of the planet's population. Key measures include (a) new definitions of 'mental illness' and 'mental health establishment'; (b) revised consideration of 'capacity' in relation to mental healthcare (c) 'advance directives' to permit persons with mental illness to direct future care; (d) 'nominated representatives', who need not be family members; (e) the right to mental healthcare and broad social rights for the mentally ill; (f) establishment of governmental authorities to oversee services; (g) Mental Health Review Boards to review admissions and other matters; (h) revised procedures for 'independent admission' (voluntary admission), 'supported admission' (admission and treatment without patient consent), and 'admission of minor'; (i) revised rules governing treatment, restraint and research; and (j) de facto decriminalization of suicide...

For over three decades, therapeutic jurisprudence (TJ) has produced rich scholarship highlighting the inseparable connection between law and personal wellbeing. Only recently, however, have TJ scholars begun to explore the influence that the law has on those practicing it. The current research aims to contribute to this developing area of study. It explores the "emotional map" of public prosecutors in relation to defendants and crime victims, their awareness to these emotions and the impact that these emotions have on their professional decisions...

Although therapeutic jurisprudence ("TJ") is increasingly well-established internationally, particularly within the United States of America ("US"), to date it remains relatively unacknowledged within the United Kingdom ("UK"). This article will explore the opportunities presented within contemporary UK society for the greater promotion, and eventual mainstreaming, of TJ. It will also consider the challenges faced during this process and how best to overcome these. Its first key area of focus will be upon the potential role of legal education in the UK in educating law students (and academics) about TJ, considering which approaches are likely to be most effective in incorporating TJ perspectives, at what stage this should occur and to what extent TJ is likely to impact on the existing curricula at a time when proposed changes relating to entry into the legal profession are heavily influencing the work of Law Schools...

Kathy L Cerminara
More than 25 years ago, Professors David Wexler and Bruce Winick envisioned broad application of therapeutic jurisprudence (TJ), an interdisciplinary theory of law suggesting that legislatures, regulators, and judges consider the extent to which their decisions impact the psychological well-being of those upon whom the law acts. TJ most obviously plays a significant role in mental health and criminal law, where it originated, but Wexler and Winick long ago opined that TJ could be useful in a wide variety of other disciplines as well...

David C Yamada
This article asserts that when policymaking processes, outcomes, and implementations stoke fear, anxiety, and trauma, they often lead to denials of human dignity. It cited as prime examples the recent actions of America's current federal government concerning immigration and health care. As a response, I urge that therapeutic jurisprudence should inform both the processes of policymaking and the design of public policy, trained on whether human dignity, psychological health, and well-being are advanced or diminished...

The relationship between the number of nurses in psychiatric wards and frequency of use of seclusion and restraint has been unclear. We aimed to clarify this relationship in Japanese general psychiatric wards while controlling for patient and ward-level characteristics. We hypothesized that seclusion and mechanical restraint are less likely to be used in a ward with more nurses. We used data for individual admissions from April 2015 to March 2017 in hospitals participating in the Psychiatric Electronic Clinical Observation (PECO) system, which extracted data from each hospital's electronic health record system...

The 2007 amendments to the Mental Health Act, 1983 in England and Wales enabled non-medics to take on the role of legally 'responsible clinician' for the overall care and treatment of service users detained under the Act, where previously this was the sole domain of the psychiatrist as Responsible Medical Officer. Following state sanction as an 'Approved Clinician', certain psychologists, nurses, social workers or occupational therapists may be allocated as a Responsible Clinician for specific service users...

BACKGROUND: Criminal recidivism within two years after discharge from secure Forensic Psychiatric Hospitals (FPHs) is high, that is, over 36% for short-term judicial measures. It is assumed that relational care during treatment and continued voluntary contact and informal care after discharge, are factors that contribute to the reduction of criminal recidivism. OBJECTIVE: To examine whether the provision of relational care and continued contact after treatment can be effective in reducing criminal recidivism two years after discharge (prevalence and time to re-offense) in patients who received treatment according to article 37 of the Dutch Penal Law (i...

In Big Data health research, concerns have risen about privacy and data protection. While the ethical and legal discussion about these issues is ongoing, so is research practice. The aim of this qualitative case study is to gain more insight into how these concerns are currently dealt with in practice. For this multiple-case study, the YOUth cohort, a longitudinal cohort focusing on psychosocial development, and Big Data Psychiatry, a pilot study in Big Data analytics on psychiatric health data, were selected...

In this article, we present key concepts regarding physician and resident resilience and burnout, the legal and educational context for these distinctions, and the effects of improved physician resilience through self-care on a reduction in medical errors and malpractice. Resilience here indicates the mental processes and behaviors that enable an individual to overcome the potential negative effects of stressors. In order to explore the multiple factors that contribute to physician resilience, the authors approached the topic from a variety of perspectives, including the current ways of thinking about medical malpractice in the United States, physician resilience and medical errors, and building resilience during postgraduate medical education...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: Police use of force (UoF) encounters include individuals with Excited Delirium Syndrome (ExDS) with some frequency. Situational factors and risks to officer safety associated with these encounters have not been well studied. We examined the likelihood that subjects displaying various concomitant features of ExDS were under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. We also examined the extent of subject violence, and the impact of this behaviour on the encounter (e.g., the odds of a struggle)...
