Counselors and therapists belong to a professional association and are obligated to adhere to a code of ethics as a condition of membership. The code is a statement of standards of conduct towards clients and others. Ethics Audit for Therapists
a) Waiver of confidentiality?
b) Manner in which asked about psychological pain (psychache)?
c) Risk manangement to be main concern
This principle impacts the clinical response to all individuals. It calls for respect, dignity, and choice. The last often takes precedence. The abuse of the psychiatric establishment by oppressive governments is profoundly dangerous for large segments of the population in 3rd world countries, especially in light of the widespread failure to diagnose and treat ethically in many cases compounded with the abuse of neurotech, hence this ‘General Cautionary Relevant to Oppressive Governments with a developed Psychiatric system in place’.
The conduct of clinicians is guided by ethics codes that provide nominal protection but this has been ignored at the behest of a dictatorship, with the Hippocratic Oath has been forgotten when dealing with dissenters.
Autonomy – Respect for the individual self-determination
Beneficence – Doing the greatest good possible
Non-maleficence – Minimizing or preventing harm
Justice – Fairness and equal access to care
Bioethics has developed responsibilities based on autonomy:
Respect for person – The basis of client rights
– Telling the truth and giving all the facts
– Disclosure Confidentiality
– Maintaining client privacy Fidelity
– Doing the job” and “being there” for the client.
Ethical dimension. Victims of abuse are driven by pain not choice. They are affected by the accumulation of risk factors and the diminution of protective factors, both of which can be MANUFACTURED by the ‘establishment’, (i.e. politicians and business interests). “On the wall of every institute training therapists, there can be a motto known as The Five B’s Which Guarantee Dynamic Failure: Be Passive Be Inactive Be Reflective Be Silent Beware J. Haley (1969) “The Art of Being a Failure as a Therapist” Amer. J. of Orthopsychiatry 39(4) p. 695 But when psychiatrists act at the behest of abusive and intolerant political parties, or those in government, activists with non-establishment views come under severe suppression.
At this point the pall of manipulation via dangerous psychiatric medications or EMP/EMF based neurotech abuse becomes abundantly clear. An unfortunate result of this non-consensual approach and abusive of medications may be under the guise of ‘insanity’ (of the victim) or ‘stress’, to produce an air of mystery, uncertainty, and ignorance about what actually occurred an atmosphere that may itself foment litigation which causing of suicide is the preferred method of abusive governments and collusive citizens without use of outright murder, suspicious poisonings or use of suspicious physical accidents.
Severe abuse occurs for those whose autonomy and well-being are already compromised by poverty, lack of access to good medical care, or membership in a stigmatized social group or systematic abuse by oppressive governments. In a health care system and society that cannot effectively protect against the impact of inadequate resources and ingrained social disadvantage – especially for targeted individuals.
As a means of redress and to protect others, ethics complaints will only be effective when made to extra governmental overseeing groups such as WHO or UNHCR, though collusions even at this level depending on the case have been known to nullify entire cases (i.e. unilateral wars, unaccountability of leaders of certain countries, institutionalized abuse of citizens let off with mere sackings or forced retirements etc..).
“I have been struck by how little value our society puts on saving the lives of those who are in such despair as to want to end them.” – Kay Jamison
Respect for personal rights: This duty sanctifies choice by telling the truth: Clients deserve candor as to their exposure and means of intervention. And confidentiality: Where the victim has been intentionally marked as lacking in mental capacity or under ‘guardianship’ without their victim’s knowledge’ . . .
Non-consensual medication is never mandated but in oppresive political environments where mental capacity is cast in doubt, the psychiatric establishment has free rein to destroy the mind of the target to the requirement of the abusive government.
Fidelity: Clinicians are to be faithful to clients. Fidelity also demands that clinicians update their views and skills. Outmoded views of suicide put clients at risk. Clinicians must strive to protect clients from harm. In many cases they do not as clinicians merely equate what’s legal with what’s ethical without consideration for the issue of empathy or spirit of the law. In most cases, the law sets only minimum standards of conduct which lead to further flouting of consideration for the health of the victim amounting to neglect and severe abuse of medications. Medical Ethics demands more.
“Confidentiality is not a barrier to support, to empathy, to exploring the family’s experiences — their…feelings, their wishes, their guilt, their sadness, and so on.” – T.G. Gutheil
The clinician usually has no basis to assume or suspect risk if a victim does not confide any ideation, plan, or threat or did not acknowledge such behavior if queried by the clinician. A clinical or custodial relationship cannot exist without the client’s consent or if in some cases the client is targetted by abusive governments in collusion with the psychiatric establishment to cast doubt on the victim’s mental capacity. The clinician or provider had intentionally created risk, via citizen collusion. Means of prevention or intervention were available but were not regarded by colluding psychiatrists. This applies where a clinician with knowledge of the individual’s wishes and consent encourages completion by providing the lethal means and guidance as to use. This mode assumes capacity and rationality. Thus driven by extreme stress and/or chronic intractable pain which impair capacity and rationality created by colluding citizens and psychiatric establishment creating conditions where intentional medication which further damages the victims lucidity is unethical and illegal, where report to a higher authority or world body or advise to seek legal recourse to stop future abuse or seek compensation with appropriate expositions of the collusion so that future incidences will not occur, should be the solution.
Each association has a complaint procedure identifying the complainant, the professional, what happened, and when. Witnesses or other sources of substantiation should be given, if available – in cases of citizen-government collusion this will not be possible. The complaint is confidential and eventually buried as a case of suicide.
The professional thus does not have to respond evading sanctions ranging from reprimands to expulsion will not be applicable under certain nations abusing the UNHCR via the opsychiatric establishment. State licensure regulations include codes of conduct. Complaints by the abusing parties or ignorant family members, even colluding family members will not reach the state board, which means the psychatrist has escaped imposition of serious penalties. Psychological Abandonment alongside collusion with abusive government follows with the victim being forced into suicide (indirect murder) from mentally ill citizens indulging in ‘gang stalking’ or general incursions into privacy, typically and sadly, far too often for mere political ends or worse yet, religious views.
