This chapter focuses on ethical standards for psychosocial rehabilitation. Rehabilitation criteria require health care providers not only to meet ethical standards when reducing symptoms with clients but also to meet ethical standards when providing procedures that improve functioning between each person and his or her environment. Using psychosocial rehabilitation interventions opens up many new challenges that providers will confront as they improve their practices to meet their clients’ needs. Toward this end, this chapter focuses on ethical domains for psychosocial rehabilitation, including shared decision-making between those providing and those receiving services: ethics in business, management, everyday workplace, governmental agencies, research, resource allocation, and end-of-life care. This chapter informs clinicians about ethics as practices add psychosocial rehabilitation to improve functioning as well as reduce symptoms. The chapter also discusses the ethical implications of the “Hoffman Report” on the American Psychological Association and the subsequent reactions to this report.
