Counselling Ethics Casebook, 2000. Second Edition.
Schulz, William E.
There are many issues that cannot be handled completely in any code of ethics, and casebooks have been developed to help provide some clarification. The general intent of casebooks is to help educate counselors, counselor educators, and counseling researchers. Some specific objectives of this second edition include promoting the discussion of ethical issues in practice, demonstrating a willingness of the practice to regulate itself, and providing examples of each of the articles in the Canadian Counselling Association (CCA) Code of Ethics. Following the introductory chapter, the casebook is divided into six additional chapters, each dealing with one of the six sections of the CCA's Code of Ethics. Beginning with chapter 2, specific cases are presented, designed to illustrate, clarify, and analyze each of the 70 articles. This section deals with general issues of the professional behavior of counselors. Chapter 3 deals with important issues related to confidentiality, recordkeeping, informed consent, and many others. Chapter 4 discusses issues concerning consulting and private practice. Chapter 5 covers evaluation and assessment. The last two chapters deal with research and publication, and counselor education, training, and supervision. The chapters follow the same format, beginning with case presentations, followed by commentary, questions, and essays. (Contains 322 references.) (JDM)
