Absolutely required reading for all counselors, clinicians, and counselors-in-training, the seventh edition of this fully updated, top-selling text provides a detailed examination of the newly revised ACA Code of Ethics. Find out what is new in the 2014 Code and which sections have undergone the most significant revision to ensure your understanding of and compliance with the most current ethical standards in the field. In this casebook, each individual standard of the new Code is provided with an illustrative case vignette, and a Study and Discussion Guide is presented at the beginning of each major section of the Code. Primary ethical issues commonly encountered by counselors in their work are then presented in individual chapters, with accompanying case studies. Topics addressed include client rights and informed consent, social justice and advocacy, confidentiality, counselor competence, working with multiple clients, boundary issues, client danger to self or others, counselor training and supervision, and the relationship between law and ethics. Chapters new to this edition explore value conflicts and the issues surrounding social media and new technology. In addition, a new section on putting ethics into practice contains detailed, complex case studies that are representative of real-world practice, as well as small group activities to facilitate learning and discussion.
