Develop a practical and comprehensive view of professional ethics

In the newly updated Second Edition of Positive Ethics for Mental Health Professionals: A Proactive Approach, distinguished psychologists Drs. Sharon K. Anderson and Mitchell M Handelsman deliver an insightful guide for mental health professionals and trainees to stregthen and/or develop their professional and ethical identities.

Utilizing the same informal and inviting tone of the first edition, Anderson and Handelsman share the literature and provide positive discussions, exercises, case scenarios, and writing assignments, to help you explore and develop your ethical core. You'll also develop your self-reflective skills to learn how to make excellent ethical choices regarding psychotherapy and couseling.

This edition of the book also offers:
* An introduction of the idea of "tripping points", or predictable pitfalls, when making ethical choices.
* Discussions of nonrational factors in ethical decision-making, including biases, heuristics, and emotional influences.
* A renewed focus on ethical acculturation, which emphasizes the importance of your own background in the development of your ethical identity.

Perfect for undergraduate and graduate students studying psychotherapy and mental health counseling, Positive Ethics for Mental Health Professionals, will also earn a place in the libraries of mental health practitioners seeking a primer on the complicated ethical issues that inevitably arise in their practices- and how to prepare for them and navigate them.

From a Master's Student in Counseling Psychology- "I thought ethics would be arduous and full of technical terms and rules...This book was transformative in the way I look at ethics. It was so easy to read/understand and the layout made it so readable. i really appreciate the Journal Entry prompts and the Food for Thought prompts as well! Who knew I would find an ethics book I couldn't put down?!"
