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. Authors Corey, Corey and Callanan 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 present many opportunities for readers to refine their own thinking and 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?

Features :

The authors draw upon their combined experiences to provide a realistic and challenging view of dealing with ethical issues.Throughout the text, the authors stress that ethical decision making is an ongoing process with no easy answers. However, the book gives readers the framework to think through the issues.

With an emphasis on critical thinking, the text involves readers in the learning process through self-inventories, case examples, open-ended questions, and discussion questions.

The ETHICS IN ACTION CD-ROM (available for packaging with the text) contains 60 minutes of video vignettes in which students role play ethical situations and responses, commentary from the Coreys, group interaction and discussion, and exercises through which students can explore and gain knowledge. Most chapters feature activities that correlate with the ETHICS IN ACTION CD-ROM.Highlight codes are integrated throughout the text to help students learn where and when these codes apply. (Complete lists of the codes of ethics for the ACA, NASW, NOHSE, APA, ASCA and AAMFT are included in the newly updated booklet CODES OF ETHICS FOR THE HELPING PROFESSIONS.

Painful June 9, 2014
It seems that a lot of these examples would be irrelevant if people would just follow the Golden rule

great and easy to understand March 15, 2011
I am a college student and I am using this textbook in a law and ethics class and really the information in this book is very helpful. I have found it to be relatively easy reading and to be very realistic to the problems presented to most modern therapists. This book gives a very clear and thought out way to deal with such issues.I strongly recommend it.
