"Clinical psychologists in the U.K. interested in ethical issues have no standard text and must glean information from various sources. . . . Tim Bond's book on standards and ethics is a useful additional source. . . . This text is useful to anyone involved with psychological therapy in the U.K." --Damian Gardner in Clinical Psychology Forum "The book is an excellent addition to the Counselling in Action series and deserves to reach a wider reading public than counsellors and therapists." --Migel Jayasinghe in Behaviour Research & Therapy A much-needed volume, Standards and Ethics for Counseling in Action delineates the major responsibilities that both trainee and practicing therapists must be aware of before they take on clients. Examining the issues fundamental to the process of counseling, this guidebook covers such topics as confidentiality, the legal aspects of the therapeutic setting, monitoring quality, the role of the complaints procedure, and the importance of adequate supervision. It outlines the values and ethical principles inherent in counseling and points out that the therapist is at the center of a series of responsibilities--to the client, to him or herself as a therapist, to other therapists and colleagues, and to the wider community. A wide range of ethical problems are discussed and a process for resolving these dilemmas is suggested. Full of practical information and procedural guidelines, and backed up by useful codes of ethics and practice, this volume is of vital importance to all practitioners. "Both an important and timely addition to the excellent Counseling in Action series. . . . This volume is written in a lucid style with a structure that enables the reader to dip in at leisure. I liked the use of example vignettes in the presentation of ethical dilemmas as they helped to illustrate the connection between abstract principles and real life problems. Furthermore the author successfully negotiates the line between giving informed opinion and moralistic dictates and there is a useful coverage of the legal perspective on counseling issues. Although primarily aimed at the trainee and practicing counselors, topics such as confidentiality and avoiding the exploitation of clients are relevant to all mental health clinicians, and I would not hesitate in recommending this book to them." --Andrew Higginbotham, review in The International Journal of Social Psychiatry "Different theoretical views are offered, with thought-provoking examples. . . . This book ought to be essential reading for therapists, counselors, supervisors, trainers, and health care workers. As with the others in this excellent series, it is sensibly constructed, accessible, and readable. . . . It is a book which will help us all to guard the high professional and ethical standards to which responsible workers aspire, and which all our clients are entitled to expect." --British Journal of Guidance and Counselling "It is a solid book, full of useful insights that will be thought-provoking but will also underpin the Samaritan principles and practices." --The Samaritan
