Summary

Up-to-date, challenging, and provocative, this best-selling book, the acknowledged standard in the field, is a practical manual for dealing with the ethical issues that all professionals confront at the various stages in their development. The authors engage readers in a thoughtful, caring dialogue about crucial matters in the helping professions, such as:

How do the therapist's values and life experiences affect the therapeutic process?
What are the rights and responsibilities of client and helper? How can helping professionals determine their own level of competence?
How can therapists provide quality services for culturally diverse populations?
What are some major ethical issues facing practitioners in marital and family therapy? in group work? in community agencies? in private practice?

Emphasizing that ethical decision making is an ongoing process with no easy answers, the book offers a paradigm for decision-making and provides readers with the knowledge and understanding they need to effectively think through issues.
