Not just welfare over justice: Ethics in forensic consultation Journal Article

Edited by: Philip J. Candilis, Tess M. S. Neal

  • DOI: 10.1111/lcrp.12038
  • Published Date: December 28, 2013

The ethics of forensic professionalism is often couched in terms of competing individual and societal values. Indeed, the welfare of individuals is often secondary to the requirements of society, especially given the public nature of courts of law, forensic hospitals, jails, and prisons. We explore the weaknesses of this dichotomous approach to forensic ethics, offering an analysis of Psychology's historical narrative especially relevant...

Three faces of justice: Competing ethical paradigms in forensic psychiatry Journal Article

Edited by: Gwen Adshead

  • DOI: 10.1111/lcrp.12021
  • Published Date: July 3, 2013

Respect for justice has traditionally been an essential principle of health care ethics. However, many bioethical accounts of justice focus only on distributive justice, and how resources for health care should be allocated.

Doing justice to justice Journal Article

Edited by: Jennifer Radden

  • DOI: 10.1111/lcrp.12023
  • Published Date: June 26, 2013

Adshead's recognition that only when taken together can the many different conceptions of justice accommodate what is called for in the particularly demanding setting of forensic mental health care, is to be applauded. Each must be honoured and built into the systems of assessment and treatment that are the tasks of the forensic psychiatrist, she demonstrates. Adshead's far‐reaching revisions could resolve much that is troubling about the...

In her paper Gwen Adshead (2013) identifies the principle of respect for justice as the foundation for ethical practice in forensic psychiatry. This commentary discusses how forensic psychologists have approached a key aspect of the justice principle, the ethical imperative to promote the welfare of the individual client. The approaches of the psychiatric and psychological professions are compared and the role of psychologists as allied...
