From the Back Cover:

An engaging text that covers ethical choices in a variety of counseling settings

Helping professionals assist people with complex and sometimes highly personal problems. This often means delving into many aspects of human behavior spanning a wide spectrum of relationships, organizational settings, and other interwoven circumstances and situations. Doing this in a professional manner requires an ethical awareness that is both well informed and effectively practiced.

Becoming an Ethical Helping Professional takes mental health professionals on a wide-ranging tour of ethics—covering both the theoretical as well as practical aspects of providing sound, ethical care. Coverage goes beyond a laundry-list approach to rules of conduct, and plumbs the philosophical roots embedded in today's professional codes. Engaging case studies explore how ethical rules and principles apply in various real-world settings and specialties.

After covering ethical philosophies, codes, and standards, Becoming an Ethical Helping Professional further discusses:

  • The helping relationship from beginning to end
  • Confidentiality and trust
  • Boundaries, roles, and limits
  • Assessment: peering through the right lens
  • Research, efficacy, and competence

In addition, this reader-friendly guide includes the specifics of counseling in settings such as:

  • Agencies
  • Private practice
  • Schools
  • Rehabilitation counseling
  • Couples and family counseling
  • Addictions counseling
  • Teaching, mentoring, and supervision
  • Multicultural settings and situations

A unique and comprehensive resource, Becoming an Ethical Helping Professional challenges students and professionals to consider both the process and the content of making ethical choices as a helping professional.
