Remley, Theodore P., Jr., Ed.; Hermann, Mary A., Ed.; Huey, Wayne C., Ed.
School counselors face ethical and legal challenges every day. This new edition of "Ethical and Legal Issues in School Counseling" provides valuable information and guidelines to help school counselors meet these challenges head-on. Edited and compiled by three experts in the field, including two who are counselor educators as well as attorneys and one who has extensive field experience, this book is a compilation of some of the most informative journal articles previously published. The never-before published introductory sections contain guidelines and added perspective to these issues. This publication provides concrete and practical suggestions for addressing complicated ethical and legal situations, including "how-to's" on some of the following key issues: making ethical decisions, managing suicidal or potentially violent students, maintaining confidentiality, respecting parents' rights, dealing with special education, and addressing alleged sexual harassment.
