Product Description


Ethical Maturity in the Helping Professions is an interesting and accessible read which is ideal for counselling, coaching, and psychotherapy students and graduates alike. I know that supervisors will ask me about getting copies of the book. --Professor Maria Gilbert, Joint Head of Integrative Department, Metanoia Institute, London

I love this book. It provides an excellent summary of the issues and takes the discussion about ethics to a new level of maturity. I have made it required reading for our students. --Professor David Lane, Middlesex University, UK, and Director of the Professional Development Foundation

The authors bring a refreshing approach to this complex and challenging area of enquiry. Each chapter provides a wealth of carefully selected theory and helpful case examples to assist the reader to explore and understand the basis of their own and other's ethical positions and actions. The book is of interest to all those who aspire to making the world a 'better' place for all of its citizens and I would recommend it to all students training to work in the helping professions. --Sheila Furness, Senior Lecturer in Social Work, University of Bradford, UK

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A wonderfully rich exploration of the origins and components of ethical maturity, based on the authors' lifetime reflection on the complex dynamics operating within and between individuals.

A really welcome addition to the literature available to facilitate the ethical education and personal reflection of counsellors, therapists and other helpers.

I feel that I shall be dipping in and out of this comprehensive, thoughtful and entertaining volume throughout my career.
