Civil Commitment

Examine the criteria for civil commitment in your state, then complete the following: Describe the state criteria for civil commitment. Does your state have inpatient or outpatient civil commitment options? Identify two facilities in your region that could provide these services. Based on your knowledge of psychopathology, how would you recommend criteria for civil commitment in your state be improved? Or, if you believe they are adequate, explain why you believe so in the context of current thinking of psychopathology. Response Guidelines Respond to the post of one other learner. Your responses should be substantive, including references to the assigned readings and other theoretical, empirical, or professional literature to support your views. Replying to your respondents also provides you opportunities to present analysis and new insights, promoting dialogue among your fellow learners.
