About

Overview

Up-to-date and comprehensive, *including the ACA 2014 Code of Ethics,* this practical best-selling text provides students with the basis for discovering their own guidelines for helping within the broad limits of professional codes of ethics and divergent theoretical positions. Respected authors Gerald Corey, Marianne Corey, Cindy Corey, and Patrick Callanan raise what they consider to be central issues, present a range of diverse views on the issues, discuss their position, and provide opportunities for students to refine their thinking and actively develop an informed position. ISSUES AND ETHICS IN THE HELPING PROFESSIONS, 9th Edition, explores such questions as: What role do the therapist’s personal values play in the counseling relationship? What ethical responsibilities and rights do clients and therapists have? What considerations are involved in adapting counseling practice to diverse client populations? With new material in every chapter and an emphasis on critical thinking, the ninth edition is useful for students as well as practicing professionals. This edition is also accompanied by CourseMate, which brings course concepts to life with interactive learning, study, and exam preparation tools that support the printed textbook, as well as Engagement Tracker, a gradebook tool for instructors that monitors student engagement in the course.
