9780199957699: Ethics in Psychology and the Mental Health Professions: Standards and Cases

Most mental health professionals and behavioral scientists enter the field with a strong desire to help others, but clinical practice and research endeavors often involve decision-making in the context of ethical ambiguity. Good intentions are important, but unfortunately, they do not always protect the practitioner and client from breaches in ethical conduct. Academics, researchers, and students also face a range of ethical challenges from the classroom to the laboratory.

The completely updated fourth edition of Ethics in Psychology and the Mental Health Professions considers many of the ethical questions and dilemmas that mental health professionals encounter in their everyday practice, research, and teaching. This classic text takes a practical approach to ethics, offering constructive means for preventing problems and recognizing, approaching, and resolving ethical predicaments. Written in a highly readable and accessible style, this new edition retains the key features which have contributed to its popularity, now with over 700 case studies that provide illustrative guidance on a wide variety of topics. New material has been added relating to evolving ethical challenges posed by new case law, electronic records, social media, changes in psychological assessment practice, complex work settings, and ethical issues in addressing human differences and diversity. This edition has been re-framed to include substantial content that extends beyond psychology, including counseling, marriage and family therapy, and social work. The case studies now address professionals in each of these fields, supporting interprofessional education and making the material even more applicable and accessible to a wide range of mental health providers and students-in-training.

Review:


"This premier resource is the finest ethics textbook covering the broad scope of mental health practice, including professions other than psychology. It is chock-full of engaging case examples and valuable guidance. Ethics in Psychology and the Mental Health Professions impresses all and improves with every edition." --John C. Norcross, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of Scranton, and Co-author, Psychotherapy Relationships that Work and Self-Help That Works


"From their trailblazing first edition in 1985 to the new fourth edition, Gerry Koocher and Tricia Keith-Spiegel always give us a wonderful resource for expanding our ethical awareness and making better decisions. Their new volume is the best yet-thoughtful, engaging, and up-to-date. This book should be in the hands of every psychologist and mental health professional, from the newest student to the most senior expert." --Kenneth S. Pope, PhD, ABPP, Diplomate in Clinical Psychology and Co-author (with Melba J.T. Vasquez, PhD, ABPP), Ethics in Psychotherapy and Counseling, 5th Edition (January 2016)


"Ethical practice, whether in teaching or clinical work, or as a researcher or an administrator, is far more than memorizing and being able to cite the codes of various professional organizations. The 4th Edition of Ethics in Psychology and the Mental Health Professions by Koocher and Keith-Spiegel is a comprehensive, compelling, and interesting approach outlining the decision-making process required to make complex decisions in many of those grey areas that characterize much of professional practice. Updated to include current advances in technology, practice, and changing ethical codes, this volume is a valuable contribution to improving psychological practices through thoughtful and ethical decision-making." --Thomas L. Sexton, PhD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus, Indiana University, and Editor, Couple and Family Psychology: Research and Practice
