Description:

The paper discusses how medical professionals have the role of protecting human rights, as do psychologists, who see that mental health has to be preserved in order to assure human rights and who are also able to see ways in which those with no respect for human rights may manipulate people and curtail their rights. The paper explains that some observers see psychologists as offering ways of coping with these issues, while others see them as developing theories that contribute to the curtailment of human rights.

From the Paper:

"Arguably, everyone has a stake in protecting human rights, but some groups in society have a more direct connection to the issue and a greater responsibility to help assure that human rights are protected. Medical professionals have that role, as do psychologists, who see that mental health has to be preserved in order to assure human rights and who are also able to see ways in which those with no respect for human rights may manipulate people and curtail their rights. Some observers see psychologists as offering ways of coping with these issues, while others see them as developing theories that contribute to the curtailment of human rights."
