Having spent some time perusing a variety of clips and articles and completing the questionnaires, I felt very satisfied. This was firstly due to successfully accessing the the various resources, and secondly because the learning element of this approach exceeded my expectations. As with the book itself, the interactive eBook is ideal for therapists at all levels of training and experience. The biggest challenge for some may be the apprehension about working online in this way, but take a deep breath and go for it. It really will be worth it! -- Angela Cooper, counsellor and supervisor Tim has managed to further enhance what was already an excellent text. The three new chapters add contemporaneous issues as well as, by embracing modern techniques and means of delivery, it has made it a very accessible text. This book continues to be the leading text for applied standards and ethics for counsellors, psychotherapists as well as for counselling students. -- Peter Cardew The revisions and additional online materials accompanying the current edition of this seminal text on ethics ensure that this book continues to make a valuable contribution to the dissemination and understanding of ethics within the profession. It provides a great teaching resource, making ethics accessible to everyone. -- Dr Hazel James Tim Bond's book has been a staple of teaching ethics in counselling psychology for many years. This new edition promises to be even better with the web-based video material that students like so much to bring topics alive. The new chapters too on for example the Digital Age and Working with Social Diversity ensure it brings ethics into the forefront of modern psychological practice. The chapter that endures in relevance for most people I think is the one on Ethical Problem-solving; students learn the framework by heart and it is something that then equips them throughout their clinical practice. -- Nicola Gale The fourth edition of Standards and Ethics for Counselling in Action is a valuable resource for people undertaking training in Counselling Psychology or Counselling. The book takes the concept of ethics and brings it to life, with ethical scenarios and dilemmas throughout the various chapters.
The book is full of up-to-date and relevant information. The chapter on `Counselling in a Digital Age' is particularly relevant and current, and it helps to answer many of the questions asked by trainees and qualified practitioners alike.
The author presents the subject of counselling ethics and standards of practice in an accessible, interactive and engaging format. A comprehensive yet easy to read resource that will complement teaching of ethics within Counselling and Counselling Psychology, highly recommended. -- Dr Jessica McCarrick Tim Bond's Standards and Ethics for Counselling in Action, now in its 4th edition and with an interactive eBook, brings the theory and practice of counselling ethics into the 21st century. Reflecting changes in counselling terminology (e.g. people vs individuals), and with additional chapters on counselling in the digital age, working with social diversity and evidence-based practice, Bond reflects on the challenges of contemporary counselling practice while continuing to maintain core principles and practices to guide ethical decision making. Standards and Ethics for Counselling in Action has reliably been prescribed reading in our Ethics and Professional Practice subjects; updated and with the accompanying counselling scenario videos it is both an invaluable and timely resource for counselling training programs, students and practitioners alike. -- Kathleen Gregory PhD This book clearly lays out the range of areas that all reflective practitioners need to consider as we move towards the professionalisation of psychological therapies.
An excellent source of reference for both experienced practitioners and those in training, this book defines the ethical responsibilities that require a depth of consideration throughout the practitioner's career.
The Psychological Therapies course team at Leeds Beckett University will definitely introduce this latest edition to the 'must read' list, from Cert through Dip PG/HE, BSc and Masters courses. -- Brian Charlesworthshow more
