Description of the book "In Two Minds: A Casebook of Psychiatric Ethics":
In Two Minds is a practical casebook of problem solving in psychiatric ethics.

Topics include risk, dangerousness and confidentiality- judgements of responsibility- involuntary treatment and mental health legislation- consent to genetic screening- dual role issues in child and adolescent psychiatry- needs assessment- cross-cultural and gender issues- rational and irrational suicide- shared decision making in multi-agency teams, and the growing role of the user's voice PDF in psychiatry. Key ethical concepts are carefully introduced and explained. The text is richly supported by detailed guides for further reading. There are separate chapters on teaching psychiatric ethics, including a sample seminar, and on writing a research ethics application. Each case history and discussion is followed by a critical commentary from a practitioner with relevant experience. Jim Birley adds a comparative international perspective on psychiatric ethics. Cartoons by Johnny Cowee provide punchy counterpoint! In Two Minds is the sister volume to the third edition of Sidney, Paul Chodoff and Steven Green's highly successful Psychiatric PDF Ethics.
