      Decision-Making Capacity and Informed Consent: A Role for Emotions

      Decision-Making Capacity and Informed Consent: A Role for Emotions

      Theories of informed consent, and in particular the element of decision-making capacity in informed consent, tend to be framed in cognitive terms. When emotions are considered, they are only recognized in terms of their negative contribution to consent and capacity: how they interfere, compromise, or impair consent. However, this negative portrayal of emotions as ‘enemies of reason’ and impairments of cognition can be argued to be clinically inaccurate as emotions also figure positively in human decision-making and deliberation. What positive role then could emotions play in consent and could emotion even be necessary for valid consent?

    Bochum

    In Men in White Coats (OUP, 2018), George Szmukler discusses a wide array of ethical problems related to involuntary medical treatment in psychiatry, arguing that mental health laws warranting involuntary treatment based on the presence of a ‘mental disorder’ and a ‘risk to self or others’ discriminate against persons with mental disorders. As a solution to this problem, Szmukler develops a ‘Fusion Law Proposal,’ which bases involuntary treatment squarely on a lack of decision-making capability and ensures that involuntary treatment respects the rights, will and preferences of the person under treatment.
