Preview

Michael Dudley and Fran Gale use the background of contemporary human rights abuses by mental health professionals, and the enduring legacies of the Holocaust, to examine the actions of Nazi doctors and psychiatrists, and the lasting outcomes of the Nuremberg medical and other trials for human rights and mental health. The main focus of the chapter, however, concerns motives for harming, bystanding, and helping that these events highlighted, the understanding of which underpins human rights abuses and also their remediation.
