  1. Psychotropic Medications and Direct-to-Consumer Advertising: Informative or Irresponsible?Natalie Achamallah - 2011 - Journal of Ethics in Mental Health 6:1-5.
    In 1997 the FDA relaxed restrictions on the practice of direct-to-consumer pharmaceutical advertising . The subsequent increase in advertisements aimed at potential patients had a signifi cant impact on rates of drug prescription. This paper gives a brief history of visual representations of mental illness used by DTCA and examines ethical concerns raised by DTCA, specifi cally for psychotropic medications. Issues discussed include overestimation of symptoms and over-prescription of unnecessary drugs, modifi cation of social perception and the perpetuation of stigma, (...)

  4. Justifying Restraint-Use in Psychiatric Care.Christopher Herrera - 2011 - Journal of Ethics in Mental Health 6:1-5.
    Critics off er a number of objections against the use of physical restraints in psychiatric care. The objections typically cite the diffi culty in reconciling this treatment with trends towards increasing respect for patient autonomy and dignity. Critics also question whether the effi cacy of such treatments have been adequately studied, risks have been properly identifi ed, and so on. Although we should take these concerns seriously, they must be set against the sometimes ambiguous nature of the caregiver’s obligations, as (...)

  9. Self-Forgiveness, Trauma, and Community: An Ethical Perspective.Kelley Mayo - 2011 - Journal of Ethics in Mental Health 6:1-4.
    In recent years promoting forgiveness has become popular in mental health circles. Lending credence to its popularity is research suggesting that forgiveness improves mental health. Those who caution against universal forgiveness most often write from the vantage point of philosophy, where the emphasis is on forgiveness as an ethical issue, one concerning rights and duties, versus a psychological issue. In cases of trauma, issues of forgiveness are often of paramount concern – both forgiveness of others and self-forgiveness. Due to guilt (...)

  11. From Psychiatrist-Researcher to Psychiatrist and Researcher: Heinz Lehmann: Critics Off Er a Number of Objections Against the Use of Physical Restraints in Psychiatric Care. The Objections Typically Cite the Diffi Culty in Reconciling This Treatment with Trends Towards Increasing Respect for Patient Autonomy and Dignity. Critics Also Question Whether the Effi Cacy of Such Treatments Have Been Adequately Studied, Risks Have Been Properly Identifi Ed, and so On. Although We Should Take These Concerns Seriously, They Must Be Set Against the Sometimes Ambiguous Nature of the Caregiver’s Obligations, as Well as the Perceived Sophistication of Alternative Treatments. Restraint-Use Necessarily Involves Medical Paternalism, and There Are Institutional Safeguards That Should Continually Be Reexamined in Light of What We Learn About Patient Care. Still, Were We to Deny Caregivers the Authority to Restrain Their Patients We Might Create Ethical Problems at Least as Great as Those That Restraint-U.Maureen Muldoon - 2011 - Journal of Ethics in Mental Health 6:1-5.

  13. Neuropluralism.Alexandra Perry - 2011 - Journal of Ethics in Mental Health 6:1-4.
    Autism is currently one of the most pressing issues in healthcare. Scholarship on the topic is commonly found among psychologists, educators, and, to some extent, philosophers. Surprisingly little scholarship, however, has focused on the ethical issues relevant to autism. Bioethicists ought to give autism consideration, though this may prove to be more diffi cult than it seems at fi rst glance. The neurodiversity movement is likely to be credited with starting discussions on autism and related issues of justice and ethics, (...)

    Establishing the validity of information gathered from patients with antisocial tendencies can be challenging, particularly when no immediate corroborative sources of information are available, and a long-term history of criminal activity is suspected. With the advent of technology such as the internet, other means of gathering information is at the treating clinician’s disposal. The handling of information gathered from non-certifi ed sources of information is a delicate matter, and care should be taken in how this information is verifi ed, disseminated (...)
