Summary

In this Second Edition of his comprehensive, well-respected text, Psychology and Law for the Helping Professions, Loyola Marymount University's Leland C. Swenson examines the difficulties that helping professionals sometimes encounter when trying to strike a balance between protecting their clients' interests and complying with the law. Swenson seeks to empower practitioners - primarily counselors and psychologists - so that they understand when and why their treatment decisions may have legal consequences. He emphasizes what helping professionals need to know about the law to avoid the "land mines. " Psychology and Law for the Helping Professions delves into many controversial subjects, such as: a mother's versus a father's rights in child custody cases; child support and visitation; inter-racial adoption; parental kidnaping; professional handling of abuse; and suppressed-recovered memories by incest survivors. This edition also includes significant recent changes in the law; updated references to the American Psychological Association's ethical principles that were revised in 1994; new coverage of confidentiality issues in dealing with insurance carriers and HMOs; and coverage of the new profession of post divorce co-parenting education.
