Ethical Decision Making - It's not an exact science!, 26 Feb. 2010
Bond's book on Standards & Ethics in Counselling is an excellent overview of current & potentially future ethical thinking & decision making. A fantastic guide for Counselling Students (like myself) and any practising Counsellors & Psychotherapists - a definite MUST READ!
Ethical Dilemma's can occur more often than one may expect & without some idea of best courses of action to take, one could find themselves in very difficult to handle situations. There's no such thing as right or wrong, and no simple black & white answers - Bond enables the reader to think & act with ethical mindfullness, with a deep understanding of personal values & beliefs, while still taking heed of any relevant legislatory implications.
His writing style is clear & concise, open-minded, as objective as possible & leaves the reader with a greater, more indepth understanding of how ethics & values can/would affect their work as a counsellor.
