Psychiatrists have written much about the explosive expansion of scientific knowledge of the brain which developed over the late 20th century and the early 21st century. Comparatively little has been written within the field of psychiatry about the changes in society and world culture over this same period, and even less on the scope of psychiatric ethics that would account for these changes. Yet psychiatric ethics is an excellent framework in which to examine social changes in the field over the past 25 years, changes which are dramatic in nature and profound in impact. Some of these social changes include multiculturalism and its associated diversity of values; the transition to the digital era with its new demands on confidentiality, clinical boundaries, and privacy; the empowerment of psychiatric service users as full participants and co-producers of care; the development of new technologies of assessment and treatment, varying in their invasiveness and risk; the recognition of expanded social roles for psychiatrists, and the associated virtues of psychiatric citizenship; and the development of new practice models, settings, participants, and oversight, all of which represent profound challenges and opportunities for the ethical practice of psychiatry. The Oxford Handbook of Psychiatric Ethics is the most comprehensive treatment of the field in history. The volume is organized into ten sections which survey the scope of the text: (1) Introduction, (2) People Come First, (3) Specific Populations, (4) Philosophy and Psychiatric Ethics, (5) Religious Contexts of Psychiatric Ethics, (6) Social Contexts of Psychiatric Ethics, (7) Ethics in Psychiatric Citizenship and the Law, (8) Ethics of Psychiatric Research, (9) Ethics and Values in Psychiatric Assessment and Diagnosis, (10) Ethics and Values in Psychiatric Treatment. Written and edited by an international team of experts, this landmark book provides a powerful and important review of psychiatric ethics in the 21st Century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The OHPE functions best as an encyclopedia of topics in psychiatric ethics and will serve as a valuable reference tool for scholars and practitioners... The OHPEs chapter on Ethics and Values in Diagnosing and Classifying Psychopathology renders a timeless ethical issue in a new light with a thought-provoking discourse that includes the social consequences of receiving a diagnosis, and the unique self-illness ambiguity of mental disorders that sets them apart from other medical afflictions. * Dr. Cheung, Psychiatric Times *
This book is broad-ranging, timely and relevant, and covers an important subject in great depth. * Martin Guha, Reference Reviews, Vo. 30, No. 3, 2016 *
If you think of ethics as something stodgy, the new Oxford Handbook of Psychiatric Ethics will be an eye-opener. Changes in treatment, science, and society have produced a slew of new ethical challenges for psychiatrists. These range from the uses of deep brain stimulation and the impact of evolving concepts of psychiatric genetics, to the role of peer support in treatment. Embracing all this and much more, this comprehensive treatment of ethics in psychiatry will be an irreplaceable resource for psychiatric clinicians and researchers trying to find secure ethical footing in a rapidly changing world. * Paul S. Appelbaum, MD Dollard Professor of Psychiatry, Medicine & Law, Columbia University USA *
Clinicians practicing psychiatry and other mental health fields confront numerous ethical and values issues daily. In this extremely comprehensive Handbook Sadler, Van Staden and Fulford provide 94 welcome chapters authored by some of todays foremost philosophers, academic physicians, and clinicians who focus on the many points at which clinical care and ethical matters interface. This authoritative volume deserves widespread reading and pondering by those concerned that ethical issues are well considered in psychiatric assessment, treatment, and research, aiming for and that patients treated by psychiatrists and other mental health clinicians receive the highest levels of ethically-informed care scholarship and values-based practice possible. * Joel Yager, MD Professor, University of Colorado School of Medicine and Chair, Council on Quality Care, American Psychiatric Association *
This comprehensive treatment of ethics in psychiatry covers the whole gamut from the philosophical to the pragmatic; from traditional, ethnic, religious value systems to modern citizenship; from the doctors to the patients perspectives, and more. It is a must have that can serve multiple purposes as a practice guide, a reference book, and a life time companion in our endeavors to think more deeply about ethics and practice. * Louise Sundararajan, Ph.D. Ed.D. Past President, Society for Humanistic Psychology *
Despite the impressive advances in neuroscience, psychiatry, more than any branch of medicine, is embedded in and constantly shaped by culture. This comprehensive two-volume book provides a scholarly approach to understanding the multifaceted interaction between medical science and society as they both evolve. It will stand as an indispensable resource for many years. * Stuart J. Youngner, MD, Professor of Bioethics and Psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University *
