Overview

The work of every school of psychotherapy and every therapist is inevitably structured by a value system and requires codes of ethics and practice. This book addresses the conscious and unconscious aspects of the value system in which therapists are situated. Values and Ethics in the Practice of Psychotherapy and Counselling explores the central issues through the experience of the contributors, each of whom is well known in this field. Each chapter will raise questions for the reader which will stimulate individual thinking about practice or can form a basis for discussion and debate for training or graduate groups. The book is firmly rooted in practice. Each chapter deals with a different aspect of the psychotherapist's work beginning with the general underlying principles, continuing through matters of technique and on to contextual issues. Finally the book moves to the outer world, politics and spirituality as ways of connecting inner and outer, social and individual. The arrangement of chapters allows for flexibility and creativity while providing a coherent structure.

Values and Ethics in the Practice of Psychotherapy and Counselling is recommended reading for psychotherapists, psychoanalysts and counsellors in training and practice.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
A baker's dozen of "conversations" by UK-based psychotherapists of mostly psychoanalytic orientation explore the conscious and unconscious aspects of their professional value systems. Barnes, a UK Jungian training analyst with a private practice, and Murdin, who taught at the Open U. and has been involved in psychoanalytic training, introduce issues involved in clinical practice with patients of diverse needs and backgrounds while adhering to personal principles, professional philosophy, and legal requirements. Issues discussed include responsibility for colleagues' behavior, confidentiality, erotic transference, and transformative politics. Distributed in the US by Francis & Taylor. Annotation c.
