Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Rita (counseling and women's studies) and John (counseling), both affiliated with the U. of Montana, present a textbook on ethics in the helping professions for people considering a career as a counselor, therapist, mental health professional, or helper. The gap between theories of right and wrong and the application of helping skills has grown dangerously wide, they say, and they challenge professionals to take the time and endure the discomfort of putting into practice the multi-cultural skills and awareness they espouse. The accompanying video disk contains interviews and a group discussion. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
