Overview

This authoritative resource, written by two counseling professors—one an attorney and the other an expert in ethics—explores the most difficult ethical, legal, and professional challenges in counseling in an easy-to-understand manner. Ideal for instructors who do not specialize in the topics presented, and for students who are learning about the counseling profession, Ethical, Legal, and Professional Issues in Counseling includes numerous case studies throughout not only to highlight difficult situations faced by counselors, but also to give readers the benefit of the authors’ best thinking on how to resolve the dilemmas. The complex legal, ethical, and professional counseling issues are analyzed and discussed in a manner that allows counselors to resolve challenging situations as they arise in their practice. Included is practical advice on how to manage ethical and legal issues such as using technology and social media, counseling minors and vulnerable adults, counseling clients who may be suicidal or violent, responding to subpoenas; setting boundaries with clients, students, and supervisees serving as gatekeepers for the counseling profession; developing a private practice, responding to complaints, and practicing in a diversity-sensitive manner. The topics are relevant for school counselors, clinical mental health counselors, college counselors, rehabilitation counselors, marriage and family counselors, substance abuse counselors, and counselors who practice in other specialties. As a text it is appropriate for undergraduate, master’s level, and doctoral level human services and counseling.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From Reviews of the Book:

“[A]ligns very well with CACREP standards associated with teaching ethics . . . . [T]he writing . . . is excellent . . . . Remley and Herlihy provide students with a comprehensive guide for navigating ethical and legal dilemmas in counseling. I appreciate that Remley and Herlihy create new editions that are accurately updated to current issues in counseling and counselor education. I know when a new edition is released that it will be the most up-to-date resource available to counselors.”

–Elizabeth A Prosek, University of North Texas

“[T]he text provides thorough coverage of professional issues in counselling. Students are able to understand historic and legal aspects of their profession and ethical obligations so that they are empowered to be competent decision makers on behalf of themselves and their clients . . . . [T]his is an excellent book that covers professional identity and ethical and legal issues to sufficient depth for training counsellors to be competent, pass their necessary exams for licensure and certifications, and fulfill their professional obligations.”

–Keith Mobley, University of North Carolina at Greensboro

“It’s written in a way that is relatable for both students who have no context or experience in the field and also for those who have been practicing for a while . . . . [Key strengths include a] focus on counseling as a separate profession, inclusion of current legal cases, [and a] focus on diversity considerations.”

–Claudia Lingertat-Putnam, The College of Saint Rose

“[The text] is engaging and clear while remaining appropriately professional in covering the essential topics of ethical and legal information and behavior . . . . I feel the case examples, and subsequent questions help students bring a practical application to [the] material.”

–Edward A. Wierzalis, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
