Professor Walter has published over 300 articles and has won a number of key research awards. His major research interests are in mood disorders in young people, physical treatments in psychiatry, genocide and severe trauma, psychiatric stigma, use and abuse of media, publishing processes and ethics. His PhD was on the use of electroconvulsive therapy in the young. In 2012, Professor Walter was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia for services to medicine.


"Robertson and Walter's book does not disappoint the reader. It is set out and written in a clear and educative style. We, the readers, are gradually and considerately initiated into the language and concepts of moral philosophy, and the particular dilemmas facing the psychiatrist and the profession. ... The main issues of the past, present and immediate future of psychiatry are addressed. The authors offer a grounded and practical model for approaching them. ... The moral philosophy of psychiatry and Robertson and Walter's book are essential considerations for all of us."
- Nick O'Connor, St Leonards, Sydney, Australasian Psychiatry, 2013

"Chapters end with extensive references and some have a summary of important points. Additionally, there are some diagrams, tables, and a few black-and-white photographs."
-Steven T. Herron, MD, University of Arizona Health Sciences Center for Doody's Review Service
