Ethical Helping Professional This guide will take readers on a wide-ranging tour of ethics—covering both the theoretical and practical aspects of providing sound, ethical care. In addition to invaluable information, this book provides access to chapter objectives, candid case studies, stories from both students and counselors, questions for reflection, and student discussion activities. The Video Resource Center features thoughtful experts discussing the cultural dynamics, life experiences, and philosophical positions that inform ethics in counseling and psychotherapy. The videos include a group discussion of moral philosophy, and interviews with a Buddhist monk, an Islamic scholar, and a counselor.

After covering ethical philosophies, codes, and standards, Becoming an Ethical Helping Professional further discusses:

  • The helping relationship from beginning to end

  • Confidentiality and trust

  • Boundaries, roles, and limits

  • Assessment: peering through the right lens

  • Research, efficacy, and competence
