Review:

"Becoming an Ethical Helping Professional is a usable text that is hands–on, reader friendly, and accessible.This unique contribution by two seasoned helping professionals bridges the gap between the philosophical foundations and the practice of helping." ( PsycCRITIQUES, November 7, 2007)

From the Back Cover:

An engaging text that covers ethical choices in a variety of counseling settings

Helping professionals assist people with complex and sometimes highly personal problems. This often means delving into many aspects of human behavior spanning a wide spectrum of relationships, organizational settings, and other interwoven circumstances and situations. Doing this in a professional manner requires an ethical awareness that is both well informed and effectively practiced.

Becoming an Ethical Helping Professional takes mental health professionals on a wide–ranging tour of ethics covering both the theoretical as well as practical aspects of providing sound, ethical care. Coverage goes beyond a laundry–list approach to rules of conduct, and plumbs the philosophical roots embedded in today′s professional codes. Engaging case studies explore how ethical rules and principles apply in various real–world settings and specialties.

After covering ethical philosophies, codes, and standards, Becoming an Ethical Helping Professional further discusses:

  • The helping relationship from beginning to end
  • Confidentiality and trust
  • Boundaries, roles, and limits
  • Assessment: peering through the right lens
  • Research, efficacy, and competence

In addition, this reader–friendly guide includes the specifics of counseling in settings such as:

  • Agencies
  • Private practice
  • Schools
  • Rehabilitation counseling
  • Couples and family counseling
  • Addictions counseling
  • Teaching, mentoring, and supervision
  • Multicultural settings and situations

A unique and comprehensive resource, Becoming an Ethical Helping Professional challenges students and professionals to consider both the process and the content of making ethical choices as a helping professional.
