"The most significant contribution of this revised edition is its
broad coverage and foundation it provides. It has additional appeal
because it facilitates inter-disciplinary understandings and
considerations. Its broad coverage also allows the opportunity to
expand the content to special requirements of our training program.
The book gives students the big picture of the essential things
they need to consider as they prepare to become people helpers. I
have served on the Board of Psychology, on an ethics committee, and
have been teaching ethics and law for over 20 years. This 7th
edition is a superb addition and gift to the field."
"This is the best and most comprehensive ethics book available. Important issues are not just superficially mentioned. They are thoroughly and sensitively discussed, with all sides presented. The book is fair, thorough, sensitive, and well written. Documentation for further research, exploration of the issues and intensified discussion is replete in the book. The authors have kept up with changes in our profession, such as online counseling, managed care transmission of new diseases. They are sincerely devoted and dedicated to the training of excellent counselors. It shows in the issues included in the book and the way they approach the topics and issues. Simply put, I use the book because there is no other book about counseling ethics that approaches the usefulness of this book."
"The main reason I think this book is so valuable is the comprehensive coverage of all the most important ethical issues in practice. I consider this textbook to be the most useful, readable text for both undergraduate and graduate students on ethics currently on the market. This book is an outstanding example of an exemplary text on ethics in the helping professions. The authors know how to teach this subject matter in a way that students can remember the material, utilize the information in practice and get excited about ethical and value-laden issues with which they will be confronted in practice. My students told me that this course should be mandatory for every social work student earning a Master's degree."
