Posted October 17, 2000
The Portable Ethicist for Mental Health Professionals should be in every psychologist, counselor, and therapist¿s library. It¿s strengths are many but I particularly like it¿s Flash Points sections which offer a discussion point for helping understand when a person can be liable for certain actions. It then relates these to the Professional Code of Conduct for different disciplines. It¿s concrete and practical. The book is easily readable, but well researched. Anyone who has heard either Bart Bernstein or Thomas Hartsell, Jr. Speak, knows these guys have ¿been there and know this stuff.¿ It¿s one of my favorite books for anyone who counsels or helps others. If read and followed, it should keep us out of the courthouse and in the counseling field helping those in need. Joel Blaylock, Allen, TXWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
