Up-to-date and comprehensive, this practical best-selling text now available with an online personalized study plan, helps students learn how to deal with and apply ethical standards. The authors provide readers with the basis for discovering their own guidelines within the broad limits of professional codes of ethics and divergent theoretical positions. They raise what they consider to be central issues, present a range of diverse views on these issues, discuss their position, and provide readers with many opportunities to refine their own thinking and to actively develop their own position. The authors explore such questions as: What role do the therapist's personal values play in the counseling relationship? What ethical responsibilities and rights do clients and therapists have? And, what considerations are involved in adapting counseling practice to diverse client populations?

Review quote

"The most significant contribution of this revised edition is its broad coverage and foundation it provides. It has additional appeal because it facilitates inter-disciplinary understandings and considerations. Its broad coverage also allows the opportunity to expand the content to special requirements of our training program. The book gives students the big picture of the essential things they need to consider as they prepare to become people helpers. I have served on the Board of Psychology, on an ethics committee, and have been teaching ethics and law for over 20 years. This 7th edition is a superb addition and gift to the field." "This is the best and most comprehensive ethics book available. Important issues are not just superficially mentioned. They are thoroughly and sensitively discussed, with all sides presented. The book is fair, thorough, sensitive, and well written. Documentation for further research, exploration of the issues and intensified discussion is replete in the book. The authors have kept up with changes in our profession, such as online counseling, managed care transmission of new diseases. They are sincerely devoted and dedicated to the training of excellent counselors. It shows in the issues included in the book and the way they approach the topics and issues. Simply put, I use the book because there is no other book about counseling ethics that approaches the usefulness of this book." "The main reason I think this book is so valuable is the comprehensive coverage of all the most important ethical issues in practice. I consider this textbook to be the most useful, readable text for both undergraduate and graduate students on ethics currently on the market. This book is an outstanding example of an exemplary text on ethics in the helping professions. The authors know how to teach this subject matter in a way that students can remember the material, utilize the information in practice and get excited about ethical and value-laden issues with which they will be confronted in practice. My students told me that this course should be mandatory for every social work student earning a Master's degree."
