Symposium of the Association of European Psychiatrists. Strasbourg, FRA, 1997/10/17.
The increasing demand for judicial coerced treatment of sexual abusers constitutes a new challenge for mental health professionals.
The discussed controversial ethical issues are the influence of coercion on the treatment, the motivation of patient as well as therapist, confidentiality and hormonal treatment.
Social control is not the primary concern of therapists and any treatment must be beneficial to the individual patient.
The coerced treatment of sexual abusers requests an agreement between psychiatric and judicial authorities with respect for their respective professional ethics.
