Overview

Ethics for Psychotherapists and counselors is the first ethics book designed to engage students and psychotherapists in the process of developing a professional identity that integrates their personal values with the ethics and traditions of their discipline. Anderson and Handelsman present positive discussions accompanied by a variety of thought-provoking exercises, case scenarios, and writing assignments to introduce readers to all the major ethical issues in psychotherapy.

The authors are psychologists, trainers of psychotherapists, researchers in the field, and former clients. They appreciate that the professional journey is challenging, ongoing, and sometimes counterintuitive. In this book, they help readers achieve excellence as counselors and psychotherapists by integrating the ethics of psychotherapy with readers' own backgrounds, values, and ideals.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sohow can ethics educators overcome this defensive and rule-orientedculture? Sharon Anderson and Mitchell Handelsman offer an excellentsolution for students in undergraduate or beginning master's levelgraduate programs...Perhaps the most striking thing about this bookis the way that Anderson and Handelsman manage to make the processof ethical acculturation, even the very process of learning tounderstand and internalize mental health ethics, fun...The authorsclearly understand the need to foster an active learning processthat includes self-awareness, self-reflection, discovery, andapplication. Thus, this book goes far beyond the provision ofdidactic material-something all too rare in ethics texts. It isclear that Anderson and Handelsman are accomplished teachers inthat their writing style is lighthearted, good-humored, engaging,and, most important, deeply empathic." (American Journal ofPsychology, 1 March 2011)

“Itis useful in stressing those aspects of immersion into the ethicsaffective side of one’s professional development that is notalways present in more didactic texts.” (PsycCRITIQUES,May2010)
