Book Description

1 Dec 2006 0415953227 978-0415953221 New Ed

The professional practice of counseling and mental health can often be complex and litigious. While there are many professional ethics textbooks, there are few, if any, supporting resources to assist in mastering basic terminology, or to offer easy access to important legal opinions in everyday practice.

The Dictionary of Ethical and Legal Terms and Issues is an invaluable resource for students and practitioners alike who need to navigate that complexity. The book blends ethical, legal, and professional issues along with a dictionary for the mental health professional in one handy volume.

An essential resource in any professional library, this book will be of interest to anyone who needs a ready guide to the myriad ethical and legal terms and issues encountered in both training and practice.

Product Description


“This is one of those few books that every licensed mental health professional should have in their office (as well as students wishing to become licensed mental health professionals). Dr. Sperry has done an excellent service to the profession by putting this book together.”  - Thomas G. Plante, Ph.D., ABPP, Professor and Chair of Psychology and Scholar-in-Residence of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University, USA

“In this meritorious book by Len Sperry, the key terms in ethics are defined and their special relevance to clinical ethical decision-making is detailed. This text will be particularly valuable for professionals and students who discern and seek to resolve knotty ethical problems that naturally arise in mental health care.”  - Laura Roberts, M.D., Chairman and the Charles E. Kubly Professor of Psychiatry at the Medical College of Wisconsin, USA; co-author, Ethics in Mental Health Care

“This book presents the practitioner, student, and educator with a broad and accessible array of terms and issues crucial for mental health professionals. It is written in a concise, comprehensive, and accessible style. As such, it is indispensable for its breadth and depth in succinctly and clearly describing the legal and ethical issues and elements of contemporary mental health professions.” —Ronald Bullis, Ph.D., J.D., author of Sacred Calling, Secular Accountability: Law and Ethics in Complementary and Spiritual Counseling

"This book would be an excellent adjunct to any course or training program on ethical and legal issues in the counseling profession."- E.H. Mike Robinson, III Ph.D. N.C.C., Heintzelman Eminent Scholar Chair, University of Central Florida, USA
