Editorial Reviews

Review

“A very clear and well written book highlighting many of the important aspects of ethics. Crucially, it covers aspects of ethics often ignored by other texts and explains less well understood aspects very clearly (for example, authors' credit).” (Dr Peter Hills )

“Excellent book, perfect for this course.” (Professor Debra Glaser )

“Excellent material, updated for introduction to ethical practice.” (Dr Kenneth Hapke )

“Comprehensive and well formatted with essential practical applications imbedded in the text.” (Professor Sandra Miller )

“The author presents a nice overview of the ethics code, but does it in an engaging manner. I really liked the case studies presented along with the ethical codes. The case studies help students identify more with the ethical codes by providing situations my students may encounter when they start working in the field.” (Heidi Hillman )

"Consistent with early editions of this book, the present updated edition is an excellent contribution to the literature on the APA Ethics code and is sure to have utility for professors, students, and practicing psychologists. I would strongly recommend the book for use in graduate classrooms focusing on the APA Ethics code. I would also strongly recommend the book to new and experienced clinicians in practice settings. This specific update for this edition of the book is likely to be of particular benefit to those working in military or forensic settings as notable updates have been included focusing on the changes to the APA Ethics Code as a function of human rights issues. The greatest strengths of the book include it’s brevity, organization, and clarity of content. In line with its name, it is especially capable of helping students or those with minimal experience with the ethics code to understand the heart of the APA standards and aspirational statements."

(Caleb Siefert )

Decoding the Ethics Code is must reading for psychotherapists from all the mental health guilds. Celia Fisher was a member of the APA committee that drafted the 2002 revision of the Ethical Code, and there is nothing like going to the source. The book is readable and informative, and helps to make sense of the new HIPAA regulations No ethical practitioner can afford to be without this resource.

This book is amazing! It helps the reader understand what is required of psychologists in simple but comprehensive terms. It also provides invaluable information about HIPAA laws that I found very helpful.
