Publisher Comments:

Ethics of Psychiatry addresses the key ethical and legal issues in mental health care. With selections by Paul S. Applebaum, Christopher Boorse, Kerry Brace, Peter R. Breggin, Paula J. Caplan, Glen O. Gabbard, Donald H.J. Hermann, Lawrie Reznek, Thomas Szasz, Jerome Wakefield, Bruce J. Winick, and Robert M. Veatch, among others, this sourcebook offers the latest research in psychiatry, psychology, advocacy, mental health law, social services, and medical ethics relevant to the rational autonomy of psychiatric patients.

Book News Annotation:

Considers seven key ethical issues faced by mental-health professionals: the value dimension of mental illness, the medical model and psychiatric classification, duties and rights in the therapist-patient relationship, controversial behavior-control therapies, civil commitment, the legal side of mental illness, and custodial care versus de-institutionalization. The 31 recently published essays are accessible to lay readers and may be of interest to those whose relatives are under care as well as to professionals. No index.
