This book guides helping professionals, using the theme of decision-making as an anchor for the discussion of ethics in professional practice. Providing a thorough presentation of ethical principles and standards, the authors conscientiously examine ethical issues as they manifest themselves within several specialty areas (couple and family, school, mental health, career, group, rehab, additions, etc.) and use compelling case studies to illustrate the connection between ethical decision-making models and ethical practice. This revision includes additional coverage of multicultural issues, references the new 2005 American Counseling Association (ACA) Code of Ethics, and includes the highly-praised compendium of ethical codes.
