`This edition retains the same informative and accessible style and broadly the same order of contents as the First Edition, which makes it easy for readers to track down key changes. The author's extensive experience in the field of ethics in counselling and his experience as Chair of BACP underpin this updated, essential and authoritative Second Edition' - British Journal of Guidance & Counselling
'Tim Bond has done a great service to the counselling profession by writing, and now updating, this book… His particular strength must surely be his clarity in acquainting counsellors with the complexities of British law. After an introduction, he starts with an exploration of the origins and scope of counselling. He then exemplifies cases in which a counsellor's personal and professional values collide. He has collected together a host of ethical dilemmas that counsellors might have to face' - Naomi Stadlen, Journal of the Society for Existential Analysis

The second edition has usefully updated information which now provides one of the few comprehensive overviews of this emerging discipline.
With well illustrated cases, Tim Bond has provided an invaluable tool for counsellors and those who teach the subject. While covering all the main issues, Tim Bond has provided a comprehensive text book which also remains readable and therefore of practical use to the busy professional.
Tim Bond has illustarted the book with both UK and USA examples, from both the Legal and Professional perspectives.
Coverage includes material drawn from the largest UK counselling organisation - the British Association for Counselling (BACP), as well as the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
This second edition has developed the book in terms of updating material and offering a good overview of the topic.
From the UK perspective and in particular the BACP viewpoint, Tim Bond's work is hard to beat - as he has been central to the BACP development of Standards and Ethics, chairing the committe for many of it's most formative years.
It should be noted that Tim Bond has been commissioned by BACP to facilitate the development of new a Standards and Ethics Code for 2002, which speaks highly of his standing within this specialism within the counselling field.
This book or its equilivent is a must read for every counsellor.
