"The textbook provides counselor trainees with a no-nonsense analysis of the relevant ethical issues they will face in their clinical work. It is written in clear and concise language and provides its readers with wonderful opportunities for self-exploration and professional development. The authors have done a great job of providing supportive research and of integrating this research into relevant practice issues. The book utilizes a strengths-based approach to addressing ethical and legal issues faced by professional counselors and highlights the importance of self-awareness, discernment, and respect for diversity when addressing these issues in the workplace." "[This book is] an effective exploration of the complexity of ethical codes and standards for counselors, with effective experiential activities, including inventories for students, related activities, and CD case profiles."
