A Survey of Australian Psychiatrists' Attitudes and Practices Regarding Physical Contact With Patients
Australian and New Zealand Journal of Psychiatry. 1994 Sep; 28(3): 488-497.
A brief review of the ethics of psychiatrists' and psychotherapists' physical contact with patients is followed by a more detailed review of the major North American studies using self report surveys to measure attitudes and behaviour regarding physical contact with patients. The methodology and results of a recent sample survey of Australian psychiatrists' attitudes and behaviour regarding such physical contact are presented and discussed by comparison with the North American literature. Issues pertaining to both "erotic" and "non-erotic" contact are explored.
