Therapy and Treatment Discussion
In what situations or circumstances should someone with severe mental illness be forced to undergo treatment? How does someone’s civil rights weigh against involuntary treatment that is in his or her best interests? Is being forced to take psychotropic medication worse, in terms of violating the individual’s right to refuse treatment, than being forced to undergo psychotherapy? Explain your position on all of these issues with relevant information from the textbook.
