DESCRIPTION

As practical patterns change, it is inevitable that new ethical issues, conflicts and dilemmas arise. In this book, some members of the mental health profession were asked to address such questions as: what are the new emotional, financial and ethical conflicts that professionals face?; and what are the new ethical dilemmas experienced by professionals functioning as clinicians, reviewers, entrepreneurs and managed care executives? The authors address these questions from multiple perspectives, and thus provide mental health professionals with moral, ethical and legal tools to guide their own contacts with clients and institutions. By insisting on high ethical standards they effectively challenge institutions, businesses and other professionals who may push unrealistic or inappropriate expectations on providers and consumers.
