Missing Pieces in the Sex-Offender Debate
David Barry, clinical associate professor of psychiatry, discusses a sex-offender
law being debated in Albany that would permit the state to hold many sex
offenders in psychiatric hospitals after they've served their prison sentence.
Treatment for the mentally ill is not the same as treatment for sex offenders,
says Barry. And, he adds, it's risky to confine sex offenders with mentally
ill patients. "We have been concerned," he says, "because
some could harm a very vulnerable group of people in these facilities."

dentist only when they are in pain—and recurring pain means a problem
has already developed," writes Gerald Rosen, clinical assistant professor
of pediatric dentistry, in a guest essay.
