In this fourth edition of Ethical, Legal and Professional Issues in Counseling, revered authors and scholars Theodore P. Remley, Jr. and Barbara Herlihy have maintained the qualities that have set this text apart from others in the field, however, made the necessary updates and changes appropriate for the current time. Each professional issue in counseling is approached from both an ethical and a legal point of view, offering readers a complete, integrated exploration of all facets, and the difficult issues are addressed in a straightforward manner. Practical, realistic advice is proffered through vignettes that showcase typical situations and dilemmas faced by practicing counselors. This edition delves into the most recent federal court cases that pose the most ethical and legal matters in counseling today, such as a termination from employment by refusing to counsel a gay client. Positive changes in the field and the increase in employment and reimbursement services, such as the Affordable Health Care Act of 2010, and others are properly discussed. Additional revisions include: recent thoughts of multiculturalism in practice, types of advocacy and social justice in the field, new technologies in practice, plagiarism in counselor education programs and in scholarship, setting and maintaining boundaries with clients, thoughts and perspectives on making professional ethical decisions, new insights on professional identity, and additional case studies throughout this enlightening revised text for the professional counselor in training. Ethical, Legal, and Professional Issues in Counseling, Fourth Edition, will be a mainstay text and guided resource for counselors preparing for their own practice, a trusted volume that they will likely keep on their professional bookshelf to reference and revisit for years to come.
