Summary

This practical workbook provides current and future helping professionals with step-by-step guidelines for examining and resolving professional ethical dilemmas. It's the authors' belief that most serious ethical problems can be avoided by practitioners who have a strong sense of ethical self-awareness and an ability to stay out of "ethical traps" that result from their own experiences and preconceptions. Forty-nine "ethical dilemmas" are included for classroom discussion and resolution, along with the authors' suggestions for resolving them based on a process of analysis unique to this book.

Features:

  • This book discusses ethical principles compiled from many professional organizations, including: the American Association for Counseling and Development, the American Psychological Association, the Association of Guidance and School Counselors, the Association of Marriage and Family Counselors, the National Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors, and more.
  • With an emphasis on personal responsibility, the authors devote an entire chapter to the topic of self-assessment. Practical techniques, coupled with a self-assessment evaluation tool, motivate readers to assess their responses to ethical issues in practice continually.
