atric Treatment of an Incarcerated Offender: A Case Study
5           The rationale for the use of videotape in the treatment of a commit-
ted mental patient is presented. The author also shows how legal red
tape can delay the treatment of such patients.   )
DIXIE MOORE, PH.D.
Changes in the Legal Status of Mental Patients as Waivers of a
Constitutional Right: The Problem of Consent
31           The change of status from involuntary to voluntary of committed
mental patients has often taken place without the patients' informed
consent. The author persuades us that often such changes are made
in order to avoid judicial hearings for these patients.
FREDERIC H. DECKER, PH.D.
Patient Rights and Patient Chronicity
59           The authors argue that physicians, and not the judiciary, are better
able to protect patients. They suggest that proliferation of patients'
rights may contribute to patients' chronicity.
