Informed Consent to Psychoanalysis

The Law, the Theory, and the Data

Elyn R. Saks and Shahrokh Golshan

A Fordham University Press Publication

Psychoanalytic Interventions

The goal of this book is to shed psychoanalytic light on a concept--informed consent--that has transformed the delivery of health care in this country.

Examining the concept of informed consent in the context of psychoanalysis, the book first summarizes the law and literature on this topic. Is informed consent required as a matter of positive law? Apart from statutes and cases, what do the professional organizations say about this?

The book should appeal above all to therapists interested in the ethical dimensions of their practice.
