This is the first comprehensive book to approach professional issues in counseling from an ethical perspective and legal viewpoint. It addresses difficult subjects in a direct manner, and offers practical, realistic advice for practicing counselors. A clear explanation of the necessary credentials for counseling is also provided--including licensing, state certification, and national certification. Substantial sections are devoted to crucial areas--such as ensuring client confidentiality, keeping appropriate records, responding to subpoenas, dealing with clients who are a danger to themselves or others, counseling minors, and maintaining proper boundaries with clients and students. Coverage of cutting edge issues includes ensuring a diversity-sensitive practice, dealing with managed care problems, utilizing technology, and supervising properly. Model agreements that counselors can use and adapt for practice are supplied in all of the following areas: private practice, schools, agencies that serve mandated clients, evaluation situations, and community mental health agencies. For counselors in training and for counseling practitioners.
