Ethical Issues In Forensic Psychiatry. Minimizing Harm

6 992 р.

Ethical medical practice and treatment in psychiatry are based on the concept of first do no harm

Cases illustrating the difficulties involved punctuate the presentation

Despite the fact that we cannot always adhere to the doctrine of «primum non nocere,» we can minimize the harm caused inherently by the adversarial system in which we participate

Gutheil, MD, Professor of Psychiatry and Co-Founder, Program in Psychiatry and the Law, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School

He is not advocating that the harm can be totally eliminated, because that is impossible in the adversarial system in which forensic psychiatrists work

However, there are means by which harm may be minimized if care is taken during the assessment, the report writing, and the testimony phase of the proceedings

However, this cannot, and does not, apply to forensic cases where there is no doctor-patient relationship and the forensic psychiatrist may indeed cause harm to the examinee

Immigrants are covered in a chapter by Solange Margery Bertoglia

In both sage advice to practitioners and in many revealing case examples, Dr

In summary, this book illustrates the ethical and practical issues that affect forensic psychiatric practice

In this book, Robert Sadoff analyzes the ethical issues affecting forensic psychiatric practice, especially those promulgated by the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law

Instead, this compendium serves multiple purposes: it is a valuable primer on forensic techniques of examination and testimony, a model of best forensic practices, and an instruction on the most appropriately civilized way in which to conduct oneself as a forensic psychiatrist

It has been written with an international audience in mind and features chapters reviewing the European and UK perspectives, by Emanuele Valenti and John Baird, respectively

It presents the practical issues involved in conducting forensic psychiatric assessments under various conditions plus special considerations, such as bias, minimizing harm, developing a therapeutic approach, and elaborating on various vulnerable individuals who are frequently examined in forensic cases

Praise for Ethical Issues in Forensic Psychiatry «One of the founding giants of the forensic psychiatric field has written here far more than a «mere» ethics textbook

Robert Sadoff addresses the long-term harm that can be either avoided or minimized through careful planning and application of ethical principles

Sadoff displays the tact, good manners and sensitivity of a consummate gentleman — a term not always associated with the hurly-burly of courtroom work

The book closes with a fascinating account of the legal perspective by Donna Vanderpool

The book develops the scope of forensic psychiatry from the standpoint of administrative, civil and criminal cases

The book discusses each of the procedures of the forensic expert separately with respect to minimizing harm

The book’s primary focus on avoiding harm to all the parties involved in the work places it on the moral high ground of the legal system in which participating clinicians must find a place." Thomas G

The ethical issues in conducting forensic psychiatric examinations and presenting psychiatric testimony in court are examined and discussed

The question is not what we do, but how we do it, and which standards, ethical guidelines and personal values contribute to the total picture

The success of these multiple accomplishments clearly derives from characteristics of the author

These include juveniles, mentally retarded, autistic, sexual assault victims, the elderly, the organically damaged, the psychotic, and mentally disabled prisoners

Within those guidelines, he looks at individual bias, vulnerability of the examinee, and potential harm to the mental health professional
