9780761954811: Legal Issues in Counselling & Psychotherapy (Ethics in Practice Series)

`This is an excellent book. It builds well on Peter Jenkins′ admirable earlier contribution to our knowledge of the many legal matters that are of vital concern to counsellors (Counselling, Psychotherapy and the Law, SAGE 1997) It is mY intention, as a counsellor and lecturer to make Peter Jenkins′ new book required reading for all our students. Indeed I would go as far to say that all counsellors, not matter how experienced they consider themselves, should consider this book as essential reading. As the advert says, "don′t leave home without one!" - Norman Claringbull, Counselling at Work

`This is good value for trainees and experienced practitioners alike, provoking reflection and providing a useful reference source′ - Sally Scott, Healthcare Counselling and Psychotherapy Journal

Counsellors and psychotherapists are increasingly seeing the impact of legal issues on their practice and yet many feel under-prepared for the challenges they have to face. Legal Issues in Counselling & Psychotherapy is a much-needed source of advice and reference which examines the rapidly growing range of situations in which therapists find themselves in contact with the law - in their everyday practice, in specialist work, or when facing a legal case against them.

The first part covers the current legal context of therapeutic work including confidentiality, contracts, data protection and court reports. Chapters include: defining work by leading writers from the therapeutic and legal worlds, as well as an illuminating account by a client who brought a successful case against her therapist.

Some areas of therapeutic work are particularly circumscribed by legal issues and the second part examines the specific implications for therapists in relation to:

- working with survivors of sexual abuse

-working in legal settings

-false memory

-the Human Rights Act.

Looking to the future, the book also examines the implications of professional regulation for all counsellors and psychotherapists.

The need for counsellors and psychotherapists to be well informed about the law is rapidly growing. Legal Issues in Counselling & Psychotherapy therefore provides access to essential information which will be of great value to trainees, practitioners and supervisors.

About the Author:

Peter Jenkins is a counsellor, trainer, supervisor and researcher. He has worked as a student and staff counsellor in college and university settings for the past thirty years. During this time, he has developed a particular interest in exploring ethical, professional and legal issues in counselling practice. He has run over two hundred workshops on these topics, aimed at addressing the current concerns of practitioners. He has been a member of both the BACP Professional Conduct Committee and the UKCP Ethics Committee, and has published around one hundred articles on law and ethics in the professional counselling press. His publications include Therapy with Children, as co-author with Dr Debbie Daniels (Second edition, Sage, 2010), Counselling, Psychotherapy and the Law (Second edition, Sage 2007), online modules for Counselling Mind-Ed and other training material, such as Counselling Confidentiality and the Law (2013, Counselling DVDs).
