Nonvoluntary Treatment

I’ve been meaning to share this for a week or so.  Dom Sisti is an Assistant Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania and Director of the Scattergood Program for the Applied Ethics of Behavioral Health. In a recent article in JAMA, Dom writes about the distinction between involuntary and nonvoluntary treatment.  It is a really good article that effectively reframes how we should talk about involuntary or mandated treatment, a topic to which I constantly return.
