About the Course:
Ethics in Psychotherapy and Counseling: A Practical Guide is a comprehensive and practical guide for practitioners who strive to have an ethical, competent and caring practice. It will stand as a premier reference source for ethics codes, practice guidelines, and leading edge topics of expanding practice. The authors do a masterful job of blending rational aspects of practice (e.g., power, trust, cultural and contextual differences, self-care and boundaries) with areas of continuing competency development (e.g., practice in electronic services, evolving skills in assessment and evaluation, and procedures for responding to complaints). This book is a practical resource for those who aspire to be excellent psychotherapists and counselors.
