About

Overview

Up-to-date and comprehensive, this practical best-selling text (now available with an online personalized study plan) 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 and Patrick Callanan raise what they consider to be central issues, present a range of diverse views on these issues, discuss their position, and present many opportunities for students to refine their thinking and actively develop their own position. With new material throughout every chapter and an increased emphasis on critical thinking, the Eighth Edition is modern and useful for students as well as practicing professionals. ISSUES AND ETHICS IN THE HELPING PROFESSIONS, 8e, 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? And, what considerations are involved in adapting counseling practice to diverse client populations?

Features and Benefits

  • The authors draw upon their combined experiences to provide a realistic and challenging view of dealing with ethical issues.Throughout the text, the authors stress that ethical decision making is an ongoing process with no easy answers. However, the book gives readers the framework to think through the issues.
  • With an emphasis on critical thinking, the text involves readers in the learning process through self-inventories, case examples, open-ended questions, and discussion questions.
  • The ETHICS IN ACTION CD-ROM (available for packaging with the text) contains 60 minutes of video vignettes in which students role-play ethical situations and responses; commentary from the Coreys; group interaction and discussion, and exercises through which students can explore and gain knowledge. Most chapters feature activities that correlate with the ETHICS IN ACTION CD-ROM.Highlight codes are integrated throughout the text to help students learn where and when these codes apply. (Complete lists of the codes of ethics for the ACA, NASW, NOHSE, APA, ASCA and AAMFT are included in the newly updated booklet CODES OF ETHICS FOR THE HELPING PROFESSIONS, which is available for bundling with the text.)
