Summary

A core text for ethical/legal issues courses or a supplement to marriage and family courses.

The Third Edition of this comprehensive text on ethical, legal, and professional issues in marriage and family therapy offers a wealth of updated coverage, geared to the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy standards. There are numerous case studies, and discussions of the differences between MFT as a distinct profession and MFT as a professional subspecialty. In addition, a completely new chapter explores contemporary ethical issues for which no formal precedent has yet been established. With its practical focus and planned, concise coverage, the book ensures students to gain both a theoretical background and an applications orientation. In each of the three major sections, chapters address ''general'' issues, as well as issues specific to marriage and family therapy. A concluding chapter in each section offers case illustrations that expand upon the material covered in the previous chapter. This two-step presentation helps students attain a greater understanding of how information is used in actual practice...and helps them more effectively internalize instruction.

  • NEW--An updated legal section--Includes (1) A more detailed discussion of legal responsibilities of marriage and family therapists, (2) An update on legal issues such as counseling minors and gay and lesbian marriage, and (3) Advice on how to distinguish ethical from legal problems and how to find legal advice.
  • NEW--Single source for information on all topics commonly treated in the professional issues course--The critical ''on-therapy'' issues necessary to supplement students' therapeutic training.
  • Case studies which can serve the purpose of a separate casebook--Address questions in the ethical, legal and professional domains and include recommendations based on author experience.

Provide a springboard to students' own decision-making.

  • Case studies in Ch. 4--Focus on the AAMFT Code of Ethics and include insightful critiques.

Helps students understand the rationale for the association's standards.

  • Pedagogical features--Include chapter summaries and lists of readings, as well as an end-of-text bibliography.
  • Case studies in each text section--Highlight contemporary situations students are likely to encounter in practice.
  • The chapter Contemporary Ethical Concerns--Addresses ethical issues that have surfaced in recent years, and for which no formal precedent has yet been established. Examples include AIDS counseling and confidentiality, and issues involved in working within Managed Mental Health Care programs.
  • Coverage of MFT as a professional specialization--Discusses family psychology and marriage and family counseling, thus expanding the text's applicability beyond MFT programs to courses in general counseling and psychology programs.
