Treatment and Research Ethics

The Philosophy of Psychiatry
Jennifer Radden
Oxford University Press

This chapter analyzes the various ethical issues that arise in psychiatric treatment and research settings. These range from enduring concerns over compulsory treatment and the questions of consent that occur in treatment and research settings alike, to recently encountered dilemmas over drug treatment and psychiatric genetics. The chapter also explores broader questions, including the appropriate ethical framework for treatment and research ethics, the relationship between psychiatric and other biomedical ethics, and the current dominance of the autonomy principle.
