An authoritative exploration of the most difficult ethical, legal, and professional challenges in counseling, presented in an easy-to-understand manner
Written by two counseling professors — one an attorney and the other an expert in ethics — Ethical, Legal, and Professional Issues in Counseling walks readers through professional challenges they will encounter in their counseling careers from both an ethical perspective and a legal standpoint. It includes numerous case studies to highlight difficult ethical and legal situations faced by counselors, as well as the authors’ expertise and practical advice on how to resolve these dilemmas.

The 6th Edition features new case studies with discussion and integrated discussion of multiculturalism, values, social justice, and advocacy. It also includes updated and new coverage of current topics such as the issues surrounding values-based referrals (Ch. 7); the types of lawsuits and licensure board complaints brought against counselors and guidelines for avoiding these actions (Ch. 8); current literature on client self-injury and corresponding treatment suggestions (Ch. 8); and information that addresses new developments in technology that affect the practice of counseling (Ch. 10).
