Providing an exploration of some of the major ethical issues affecting mental-health workers, this book focuses particularly on issues which have attracted most concern in recent years. These include the relative autonomy of people with mental-health problems, the influence of different therapeutic ideologies, the aims and value systems inherent in "treatment and therapy", and the "scientific" status of care and treatment in general. The topics are addressed in relation to people with mental illness, learning difficulties, and the problems of ageing. The illustrations are drawn from health and social-services settings, and reflect the professional worlds of doctors, nurses, psychologists and social workers, as well as voluntary agencies involved in mental-health care.
