Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is the best and most comprehensive ethics book available. Important issues are not just superficially mentioned. They are thoroughly and sensitively discussed, with all sides presented. The book is fair, thorough, sensitive, and well written. Documentation for further research, exploration of the issues and intensified discussion is replete in the book. The authors have kept up with changes in our profession, such as online counseling, managed care transmission of new diseases. They are sincerely devoted and dedicated to the training of excellent counselors. It shows in the issues included in the book and the way they approach the topics and issues. Simply put, I use the book because there is no other book about counseling ethics that approaches the usefulness of this book."

"The main reason I think this book is so valuable is the comprehensive coverage of all the most important ethical issues in practice. I consider this textbook to be the most useful, readable text for both undergraduate and graduate students on ethics currently on the market. This book is an outstanding example of an exemplary text on ethics in the helping professions. The authors know how to teach this subject matter in a way that students can remember the material, utilize the information in practice and get excited about ethical and value-laden issues with which they will be confronted in practice. My students told me that this course should be mandatory for every social work student earning a Master?s degree."

"The most significant contribution of this revised edition is its broad coverage and foundation it provides. It has additional appeal because it facilitates inter-disciplinary understandings and considerations. Its broad coverage also allows the opportunity to expand the content to special requirements of our training program. The book gives students the big picture of the essential things they need to consider as they prepare to become people helpers. I have served on the Board of Psychology, on an ethics committee, and have been teaching ethics and law for over 20 years. This 7th edition is a superb addition and gift to the field."

This textbook easy to read and understand. It gives many examples and thoughtful exercises. I did check out the website, hoping for more helpful study guides or resources and found it greatly lacking. Overall, I think this textbook is good for any Human Services or Social Work ethics course.

This book is great! I use it for a graduate-level class in Professional Issues (Ethics). The text breaks up the topics and does a great job of providing many examples.

As a textbook, this one is a great example. It's written in a way that is easy to understand, yet since it is a textbook, it's kind of got "boring" built into it. Seriously, if I get a good grade in the class, I'll come back & give it another star. ; )

this book is a great resource in understanding the professional and ethical issues within the helping profession. i really enjoyed the many case studies within the book to better understand the issues. each chapter started with an exam that questioned your own values, morals, and ethics. highly suggest this book if looking to get into the field.

As my title suggests, this book is an excellent resource. It frequently references most of the major professional organizations for therapy (APA, NASW, AAMFT, etc.). However, the chapters can seem redundant they are so thorough.

This text was assigned reading for a master's counseling course. It was thorough, reader friendly, and full of case studies that applied text material appropriately. I appreciated the thought-prompting questions that encourage the inexperienced reader to think like a counselor. The authors include a wealth of ethical and legal facts and information and then explore potential outcomes, sharing their own views while encouraging the reader to come to their own conclusions concerning personal values.

Some of the information is very beneficial...having been uncomfortably placed in the situation to deal with the issue of dual relationships. That's just one issue. Sometimes this book is hard to read, because some topics are a little boring, but overall, it's one of the better books I have purchased this semester
