Description

Since it first appeared in 1993, this highly acclaimed text has been the leading guide to counselling ethics. Developed in line with the BACP's own guidelines, its discussion of a wide range of ethical problems and advice on identifying and resolving these dilemmas has made it an invaluable resource. In this fully revised and updated edition, the author takes account of the changing legal, professional and cultural context of counselling and considers recent developments in law concerning the implementation of the Human Rights Act and child protection that impact on counselling.

Review quote

"This is a very thought-provoking and valuable resource for anybody undertaking counselling, either as practitioner and even as a client. The book is not only very easy to read but also extremely interesting. It should form the basis of all counselling and psychotherapy training and be a well-thumbed resident on everyone's bookshelf" Grainne Griffin, Head of the Professional Conduct Department, BACP
