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.
