Overview

"For the clients who see us in counseling . . . theological purity will make little difference if we do not practice with ethical integrity."
Randolph K. Sanders, from chapter one

The work of psychotherapy and counseling is full of ethical challenges and dilemmas. Responding to these situations with wisdom is critical, not only for the professional's credibility, but also for good therapeutic relationships and positive treatment outcomes. Since its first publication, Christian Counseling Ethics has become a standard reference work for Christian psychologists, counselors and pastors and a key text at Christian universities and seminaries. This thoroughly revised edition retains core material on counseling ethics that has made it so valuable in a variety of settings. Now fully updated, it weighs and assesses new and emerging ethical issues in the field. For example, the current volume explores ethical issues involved in:
multiple relationshipsconfidentialitydocumentationtherapist competence and characteraddressing spiritual and value issues in therapyteletherapyindividual and couples therapycounseling with minorspsychological first aid after disasterscounseling crossculturally

In addition, the book considers dilemmas Christian therapists face in specific settings such as:
church-based counseling centersgovernment and military institutionsmissions organizationscollege counseling centers

Psychologist Randolph Sanders has assembled a distinguished team of clinicians and academicians to address the issues. They include W. Brad Johnson, Alan Tjeltveit, Everett Worthington, Sally Schwer Canning, Siang-Yang Tan, Tamara Anderson, Stanton Jones, Jennifer Ripley, Angela Sabates, Mark Yarhouse, Richard Butman and Cynthia Eriksson.

Editorial Reviews

Joyce Wagner
"Overall, I feel the book is one that can be used by students just entering the world of mental health (or pastoral counseling) along with seasoned therapists—it is an accessible, practical and enjoyable read. It is also a work I believe educators and researchers of mental health will find valuable as a resource—it is both comprehensive, but concisely written."
