Closer regulation of psychological counselling means that an awareness of the professional, legal and ethical considerations is vital.

The Handbook of Professional and Ethical Practice brings together leading therapists and psychologists who have a wealth of knowledge and experience of their subjects. Each chapter places particular emphasis on the current codes of practice and ethical principles underpinning safe ethical practice and the implications for practitioners. Comprehensive coverage of the legal, clinical and ethical considerations involved in research and training is provided and the reflective questions at the end of every chapter serve to prompt further discussion of the issues. The following subjects are covered:

professional practice and ethical considerations
legal considerations and responsibilities
clinical considerations and responsibilities
working with diversity - professional practice and ethical considerations
research, supervision and training.

This innovative Handbook provides a supportive guide to the major professional, legal and ethical issues encountered by trainees on counselling, clinical psychology and psychotherapy courses, as well as providing an invaluable resource for more experienced therapists and other members of the helping professions.
