The authors bring amazing clarity to the purpose of ethical codes, the origins of ethical dilemmas, and their guidance in resolving those dilemmas. The examples that they give are not black & white, right/wrong prescriptions, but illustrate the infinite shades of gray that exist in the complex real world.
The authors also explain and illustrate basic psychological concepts, such as the therapeutic relationship, defense mechanisms, psychological boundaries, and dual relationships, all of which aren't well understood by the average person. The chapter on communication gives a great background and then offers specific skills that can be mastered. The powerful chapter on Sex, Touch & Intimacy wonderfully distinguish these three often misunderstood concepts.
I highly recommend this book.
