About the Author:

Dr. Roberts serves as Chairman and the Katharine Dexter McCormick and Stanley McCormick Memorial Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine.   

She is an internationally recognized scholar in bioethics, psychiatry, medicine, and medical education, and is identified as a foremost psychiatric ethicist in the United States.  Dr. Roberts has received extensive scientific peer-reviewed funding from the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Energy, and private foundations to perform empirical studies of modern ethical issues in research, clinical care, and health policy, with a particular focus on vulnerable and special populations.  Her work has led to advances in understanding of ethical aspects of physical and mental illness research, societal implications for genetic innovation, the role of stigma in health disparities, the impact of medical student and physician health issues, and optimal approaches to fostering professionalism in medicine. 
 
Dr. Roberts has been the Editor-in-Chief for the journal Academic Psychiatry since 2002 and serves as an editorial board member and peer reviewer for many scientific and education journals.   Dr. Roberts was the first woman to be elected President of the American Association of Chairs of Departments of Psychiatry.  Dr. Roberts has received numerous awards for leadership, teaching, and science.

Review:

"I don't know where I've faced more ethical dilemmas--as an institutional review board chairman, an alcohol and drug clinical researcher, or a primary care physician--but I was relieved to find a book that can help us all systematically find the best solutions in areas where there often seem to be no right answers."
--Richard Saitz, MD, Boston Medical Center

"This book delivers on its promise: expert, eminently useable guidance on ethical issues regarding therapeutic relationships; harm reduction; co-occurring disorders; cultural and spiritual considerations; forensics; chronic pain; and issues with women, children, and teens."
--Howard A. Liddle, Ed.D., Director of the Center for Treatment Research on Adolescent Drug Abuse

"A judicious, compassionate consideration of ethical challenges."
--Robert L. DuPont, MD, First Director, National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)

"The Book of Ethics will fill the gaps between the wide range of perspectives and practices that divide many who treat addictions."
--David Mee-Lee, MD, Psychiatrist Certified in Addiction Medicine
