This Comment will highlight the issues of the therapist's duty to warn potential victims and the duty to confine dangerous patients. A more detailed emphasis is placed on confidentiality and privilege in the therapist-patient relationship and on the predictability of violence. These issues provide a background for an analysis of the potential effects of Tarasoff on the psychiatric profession and the practical problems arising from the decision.
