Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry - Committees - Social Issues


Social Issues

This committee has researched and debated a variety of emerging social issues resulting in reports such as “The Social Role of Psychiatrists”, “The Effects of Television on Children”, and a video entitled “The Psychological Aspects of the New Reproductive Technologies”. The committee believes that psychiatrists have a vital role to play in preparing themselves to be informed commentators on social circumstances and public policy.
