After reading the case between Tarasoff v. The Regents of the University of California I truly understand how the case turned into law. Although, in the second hearing of Tarasoff II, the ruling was changed do to the liability of the therapist. The responsibility of the therapist to determine the mental status of his patient/client, was based on some key factors that were factored into the Tarasoff doctrine to aid in legal and ethical responsibilities of mental health professionals included: fiduciary relationship, prediction of dangerousness, forceability, identifiable victim, duty to protect, and reasonable care. (Simone and Fulero, 2005).
As part of the fascist conquest to create an ideal race during the World War II, Jewish people struggled to survive by evading their Nazi hunters and persecution. In Art Spielberg’s Maus he depicts his dad’s, Vladek, Holocaust experience through comics as his dad informs him of his WWII experience. In the novel Jewish people are drawn as mice and German’s cats to show how there is a constant conflict of pursuit, near captures, and repeated escapes. Vladek and other Jew are forced to hide, evade, and trick the Nazi soldiers in a similar fashion to the game to survive the persecution of his people.

The Supreme Court stated, in Mathews v. Eldridge, that the right to be heard in a meaningful way “before being condemned to suffer a grievous loss” is a basic principle of our society. See Mathews v. Eldridge, 424 U.S. 319; 333 (1976) (citing Joint Anti-Fascist Comm. v. McGrath, 341 U.S. 123, 168 (1951)). However, they proceeded to counter this by saying that due process was flexible and its procedures should be tailored to the particular situation. See Mathews v. Eldridge, 424 U.S. 319; 333 (1976).
For a court to determine that negligence has occurred, there are four requirements that must be proven. A duty of care must be owed, next, a breach of that duty of care has occurred through the defendant’s actions, this breach of duty has caused damage to the claimant and the damage caused was not too remote. The original test for whether a duty of care has been breached was famously set out in the case of Bolam , which involved, a plaintiff, who was suffering from a mental illness and being treated with electroconvulsive therapy. The treatment was known to induce convulsions or fits.
Involuntary admission and medication have been administered to the mentally ill and disabled for centuries; this course began in the 1800s when the first insane asylum opened in Britain after the 1808 County Asylum Act. While many organizations are aimed at equal rights for all who are not a direct danger to themselves or others, there is still large injustice for the mentally handicapped when his/her rights are violated by being pushed into unnecessary hospitalization. Countless innocent, mentally ill people are impacted by having treatments they are involuntarily given; fortunately, organizations such as Mental Disability Rights International are attempting to make a difference by fighting against the treatment the mentally disabled receive

Earthski 1. Is coaching a teenager-patient on anxiety-related issues in context of skate boarding lessons definitively a dual relationship? The dilemma for the therapist in this case is to decide if it is a dual relationship if the therapist coaches the teenager, whom is also a patient dealing with anxiety.
