The prostitution of the German psychiatric profession into a Nazi inquisitional tool was a major factor producing the total degradation of German medicine and moral ity. Its low point was its psychiatrists killing the patients they were sworn to care for, and its other physicians performing inhuman experiments on patients they were pledged to treat. In America also, psychiatry has been performing some of the functions of an In quisition: injuring innocents, both patients and dissenters, and exculpating crimi nals, terrorists especially. Innocents are being injured both in and out of psychiatric hospitals. The in creased fragmentation of care, the augmentation of its discontinuities, and assign ing the responsibility for organizing it to non-medical managers are some of the fac tors worsening the treatment results of our hospitals. Wrongful deaths, due largely to the specialty's intoxication with drugs while ignoring the importance of common human decency, have become a national scandal.

The fields of psychiatry and child psychiatry are encumbered by numerous and complex relational, medicolegal, and ethical dilemmas. This practical and clinically relevant book attempts to bring clarity to complex clinical presentations through the integration of psychodynamic, family systems, medicolegal, and ethical perspectives. It recognizes that the intimate and often difficult work with such complex cases requires consultation with multidimensional experts to address psychodynamic, family, ethical, and therapeutic issues. In the process, the author aims to foster the comfort and skill in dealing with these cases that is essential to the personal and professional growth of the psychiatrist. It is further anticipated that the book will assist in developing best practice standards for assessment and intervention in cases of this nature.
