Additional Book Details

Ethics in Counseling and Therapy develops ethical competence through an understanding of theory. Using a multidisciplinary theoretical framework that draws on theories from disciplines such as philosophy, sociology, and moral psychology, Houser and Thoma help readers to develop their own ethical identity and judgment, and to reflect on personal values. Focusing on the ethical theories upon which decision making is based, this text gives students and practitioners the tools and confidence they need to be able to make the best decision possible when confronted with real-life ethical situations. The authors also emphasize the importance of professional ethical identity development as a dynamic, ongoing process to be continuously enhanced. Self-reflection activities are suggested to promote the development of a professional ethical identity.
