Practicing in the New Mental Health Marketplace: Ethical, Legal, and Moral Issues
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
In the new mental health marketplace, professionals are pressured to play by new rules, and the bottom line seems too often to be money. Corporations have largely taken over what has previously been considered a private interaction between practitioner and client. These marketplace changes are having profound effects on professionals and clients, as well as on the nature of clinical practice itself.
Practicing in the New Mental Health Marketplace focuses on the ethical, legal, and moral questions that these changes have provoked. By reading the varying perspectives of the contributors to this book, clinicians will succeed in practicing effectively, knowledgeably, and ethically in the new mental health marketplace.
