The Philosophy of Psychiatry
Jennifer Radden

This chapter focuses on the philosophical and ethical issues that arise in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry. The chapter is divided into four main sections. The first covers ethical concerns about recent trends in the treatment of child and adolescent psychiatric disorders; the second covers more general approaches to understanding the duties of physicians in diagnosing and treating the mental health problems of children and youth; the third discusses some of the debate over theories of the psychological development and the nature of the child's mind; and the fourth and final section briefly addresses how some issues in the debates over the definition of mental disorder and the foundation of nosology play out in the case of disorders of children and youth.

Keywords:   child psychiatry, mental disorders, adolescents, children, psychological development
