Is the Sociopath Treatable? The Contribution of Psychiatry to a Legal Dilemma
Washington University Law Quarterly
This study endeavors to present for the judge, lawyer, legislator and doctor a relevant review of studies of treatment techniques to ascertain whether scientific and medical knowledge can provide treatment which will fulfill the mandate of the judicially created right to treatment. The study is particularly oriented toward reaching an interdisciplinary definition of “adequate treatment” and discusses the necessity for proper methodological procedures in relevant mental health research.
