This article attempts to develop a better understanding of coercion on psychiatric treatment by studying patient perceptions of coercion and of two closely related constructs - patient perceptions of negative pressures in the hospital admission process, and patients' perceptions of fair procedures in the attempts to have them hospitalized. It also examines how these constructs are influenced by sociodemographic and clinical factors. This analysis uses baseline data in 331 subjects in a larger study of the effectiveness of outpatient commitment. The authors' analysis confirms findings of previous studies that considerable variation exists in patient perceptions of coercion. (Authors)
