"This premier resource is the finest ethics textbook covering the broad scope of mental health practice, including professions other than psychology. It is chock-full of engaging case examples and valuable guidance. Ethics in Psychology and the Mental Health Professions impresses all and improves with every edition." --John C. Norcross, PhD, ABPP, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, University of Scranton, and Co-author, Psychotherapy Relationships that Work and Self-Help That Works "From their trailblazing first edition in 1985 to the new fourth edition, Gerry Koocher and Tricia Keith-Spiegel always give us a wonderful resource for expanding our ethical awareness and making better decisions. Their new volume is the best yet-thoughtful, engaging, and up-to-date. This book should be in the hands of every psychologist and mental health professional, from the newest student to the most senior expert." --Kenneth S. Pope, PhD, ABPP, Diplomate in Clinical Psychology and Co-author (with Melba J.T. Vasquez, PhD, ABPP), Ethics in Psychotherapy and Counseling, 5th Edition (January 2016) "Ethical practice, whether in teaching or clinical work, or as a researcher or an administrator, is far more than memorizing and being able to cite the codes of various professional organizations. The 4th Edition of Ethics in Psychology and the Mental Health Professions by Koocher and Keith-Spiegel is a comprehensive, compelling, and interesting approach outlining the decision-making process required to make complex decisions in many of those grey areas that characterize much of professional practice. Updated to include current advances in technology, practice, and changing ethical codes, this volume is a valuable contribution to improving psychological practices through thoughtful and ethical decision-making." --Thomas L. Sexton, PhD, ABPP, Professor Emeritus, Indiana University, and Editor, Couple and Family Psychology: Research and Practice
