The Mental Health Professional in Court: A Survival Guide is designed to help mental health professionals become more knowledgeable about the settings, assumptions, personnel, issues, and techniques involved in going to court, with the aim of demystifying the legal process and reducing anxiety about this inherently stressful experience. A revised and expanded version of The Psychiatrist in Court: A Survival Guide, published more than 10 years ago, this volume was written with three goals in mind: to soothe, support, and educate through use of an informal and at times even lighthearted tone; to offer a consistent focus on practical rather than theoretical issues; and to present the necessary material succinctly and efficiently so that readers can assimilate it quickly and under pressure of an impending court appearance. The book puts the topic in context by presenting the basics of the legal process and roles, then follows the chronology of responding to a subpoena, determining the kind of witness the reader may be asked to be, working with an attorney, preparing for a courtroom appearance, and identifying specific strategies for testifying. Well-written, astute, and supportive, this is the book mental health professionals should rely on when facing this potentially unnerving challenge.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then it's a good bet that at least half of those words relate to the picture's copyright status. Art historians, artists, and anyone who wants to use the images of others will find themselves awash in byzantine legal terms, constantly evolving copyright law, varying interpretations by museums and estates, and despair over the complexity of the whole situation. Here, on a white—not a high—horse, Susan Bielstein offers her decades of experience as an editor working with illustrated books. In doing so, she unsnarls the threads of permissions that have ensnared scholars, critics, and artists for years. Organized as a series of “takes” that range from short sidebars to extended discussions, Permissions, A Survival Guide explores intellectual property law as it pertains to visual imagery. How can you determine whether an artwork is copyrighted? How do you procure a high-quality reproduction of an image? What does “fair use” really mean? Is it ever legitimate to use the work of an artist without permission? Bielstein discusses the many uncertainties that plague writers who work with images in this highly visual age, and she does so based on her years navigating precisely these issues. As an editor who has hired a photographer to shoot an incredibly obscure work in the Italian mountains (a plan that backfired hilariously), who has tried to reason with artists' estates in languages she doesn't speak, and who has spent her time in the archival trenches, she offers a snappy and humane guide to this difficult terrain. Filled with anecdotes, asides, and real courage, Permissions, A Survival Guide is a unique handbook that anyone working in the visual arts will find invaluable, if not indispensable.
