Abstract

Using as a guide Pellegrino and Thomasma's “end-oriented beneficence model” of the virtues in medical practice, the author derives from the cardinal forms of psychiatric treatment a set of virtues particular to this field. Prior work from Jung, Havens and Menzer-Benaron helps to clarify the analysis.
