An Anthology of Psychiatric Ethics by Stephen A. Green (Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Georgetown University School of Medicine, Washington DC, USA)

This Anthology of Psychiatric Ethics will serve as an invaluable companion volume, providing ready access to foundational writings concerning the ethical practice of psychiatry, previously published articles and excerpts of book chapters selected on the basis of their significance to psychiatric ethics. It is structured in nine sections: Philosophical Underpinnings; The Therapeutic Relationship and Social Context; Psychiatric Diagnosis; Confidentiality; Psychiatric Treatment and Services; Special Populations; Forensic Psychiatry; Resource Allocation; and Research. Each chapter is prefaced with an essay that presents an introductory overview designed to help guide the reader through the topic and the individual readings. Each chapter contains between six and twelve selected readings, and is extensively referenced for further investigation of the individual study areas.
