Format: Paperback
Knapp and VandeCreek achieved something almost impossible in the field of ethics instruction. They wrote a book that was informative and interesting to read! Ethics has long been a fascinating intellectual topic; however, it has rarely been a good read. With an informal and clear style and great examples it is enjoyable as well as an important book. I was pleased at the orientation- "A Positive Approach." Unfortunately too many use "ethics" with a punitive super ego. This book however shows us how we can stay out of trouble, not harm and be better at what we do. It is valuable for all in the helping professions.

I am using this book in a graduate Ethics course, and it is great. It provides an in depth overview of the APA Ethics Code but is also an impetus for discussion. From a student's point of view it has really helped me learn the code.

Dr. VandeCreek is one of my former professors, and Dr. Knapp is well know in Pennsylvania for his knowledge and willingness to assist his fellow psychologists with any ethics questions. Knowledgeable authors, and materials presented in easy to digest fashion. Very fine work.

This was for a class and it came in great condition! It's a great book to have for people in mental health because it approaches ethics in a positive way and sparks a new way of applying critical thinking related to ethics in psychology. Great info!
