Product description


"I believe that this book is well worth reading by psychiatrists, ethics committee and licensing board member, psychiatric residents, and all those whose work impinges on the inormation it contains."- "The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease"

"The editors are to be congratulated on selecting an outstanding group of experts whose contributions are unusually even and excellent. Many chapters include vivid case vignettes. References are well selected and timely... the book's organization makes it 'user friendly' as a reference. This well-crafted volume should be basic reading for training directors, physicians responsible for impaired doctors, and forensic psychiatrists. Physician Sexual Misconduct is an ideal resource to start research on any aspect of the topic and, therefore, belongs in all medical school and residency libraries. In addition, "Physician Sexual Misconduct" is a well-written, informative, and stimulating read for any psychiatrist who has thought about this psychiatric occupational hazard, so damaging to patient, doctor, and our professional image."-- "David W. Preven, M.D., American Journal of Psychotherapy"

" "Physician Sexual Misconduct" is an excellent collection of articles that examines sexual abuse by medical and mental health professionals. The articles, grouped by subject matter, cover virtually all the relevant issues.... This collection synthesizes the insights, experience and research of a diverse group of professionals and victims/survivors into a highly useful and readable work on a complicated subject."-- "Psychiatric Times"

"In "Physician Sexual Misconduct", Bloom, Nadelson, and Notman give a clear-eyed and nuanced account of physician sexual exploitation. Ethical, legal, educational, and therapeutic quandaries brought on by erotic boundary violations are dissected with unflinching objectivity and uncompromising commitment to patient well-being. It is hard to imagine a person in a position of medical authority who does not need to read--and heed--this remarkable book."-- "John Monahan, Ph.D., Doherty Professor of Law and Professor of Psychology and Law, School of Law, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia"

"I believe that this book is well worth reading by psychiatrists, ethics committee and licensing board member, psychiatric residents, and all those whose work impinges on the inormation it contains."-- "The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease"

From the Inside Flap

At long last, a book devoted exclusively to the dilemma of physician sexual misconduct. Until recently, this was a topic not openly addressed by the medical profession. In fact, patients who brought complaints were often accused of lying or of inviting the misconduct.

Physician Sexual Misconduct results from years of work with physicians guilty of sexual misconduct and the patients they mistreated. It examines all of the dimensions associated with this terrible occurrence: legal, ethical, administrative, educational, and rehabilitative. It provides thorough, candid coverage crucial for psychiatrists and other medical professionals, social workers, lawyers, medical board administrators, and residents in ethics and forensics seminars.

To give the full picture of the medical profession's dealings with sexual misconduct, the book includes the perspectives of professional organizations, medical boards, forensic experts, the insurance industry, and patients. It addresses all of the pivotal issues associated with sexual misconduct in medicine: its legal handling, why insurance companies don't want to provide coverage for it, and how this affects victims.

This book presents the American Medical Association's and American Psychiatric Association's ethical policies against sexual misconduct and discusses how medical boards regulate this problem. Stressing that education is the key to prevention, it even offers a possible course outline for teaching medical students.

With this resource available, no health professional need feel uninformed about the problem of sexually abusive practitioners.
