Ethical Issues

Ethical issues in forensic psychiatry are more complex than ethics in the practice of general psychiatry. Many professional responsibilities and activities of forensic psychiatry are unique to the field, a subspecialty of psychiatry. Forensic psychiatrists serve in both treating and evaluating clinicians and the latter role has drawn the most concern from an ethics perspective, given the adversarial context in which such evaluations typically occur. Ethical issues should keep confidentially.

All psychologists are guided by the Ethical Principles and Code. The ethical practice of forensic psychology is also informed by the Specialty Guidelines for Forensic Psychologists published in 1991. Psychologists practicing forensic psychology can use these two documents to help clarify ethical questions. Nevertheless, the possibility of ethical dilemmas should be a constant concern for forensic psychologists. The very nature of the practice of psychology within the legal arena can lead to ethical conflicts.
