Summary

Focused on the real-world ethical challenges professionals face, it provides clear rationales for ethical behavior, encourages introspection, conversation, critical thinking, and problem solving, and promotes meaningful conversation about ethical concepts and dilemmas. Maintaining a clear focus on the health and welfare of the healing arts profession and those it touches, it covers boundaries, relationships with clients and colleagues, legal requirements, sexual conduct, confidentiality, business practices, and more. It concludes with a full chapter on practical applications that go "beyond the textbook."
