Brief Description of Work: I am working on a book, “Values-Based Psychiatric Ethics”, which will be a how-to manual for psychiatrists and mental health clinicians in addressing the ethical and values-based conflicts encountered in clinical practice. I authored a chapter on this topic for the recent Oxford Handbook of Psychiatric Ethics (2015). I am also working on a book on the confounds of moral and criminal concepts in mental disorders. Finally, my past work has focused on values issues in psychiatric diagnosis and classification.
