Ethics and Psychiatry: Toward Professional Definition

By Allen R. Dyer (NHC Fellow, 1981–82)

Washington, D.C.: American Psychiatric Press, 1988

From the publisher’s description:

Ethical questions lie at the heart of all psychiatric dilemmas. Ethics and Psychiatry examines the day-to-day issues affecting medical ethics, such as confidentiality, informed con-sent and moral perfection. The book focuses on the ethics of professional advertising; examines the importance of privacy of the doctor-patient relationship, and illustrates some of the many threats to that privacy; looks closely at the ever-present tension between the mind and body of modem medicine; and explores the meaning of medical responsibility.
