Example text

Lessard is not simply an isolated example, but is instead reflective of a more general concern for protection even in a therapeutic environment. Legislative enactments and proposals are following a surprisingly similar course. 1 14 But the most encouraging development of all, perhaps, is that the question of the necessity for procedural protections is no longer one that is almost automatically answered along polarized lines, with the legal profession urging protection and the medical and allied professions urging the abandonment of legal apparatus.

Moreover, even if all concerned supposedly have "the best interests" of the deviant at heart, therapeutic proceedings cannot afford to dispense altogether with an adversary framework. The sciences of behavior, particularly but not exclusively psychiatry, are sufficiently inexact to allow for considerable room in f scruti'nizing the evaluations of the testifying experts through skillful cross-examination by counsel and by the presentation of independent experts. 107 It is well known, for example, that psychiatric predictions of dangerousness are notoriously inaccurate and are decidedly in the direction of overpredicting future dangerous conduct.
