Critical Reflections on the Ethical and Professional Considerations in Writing about Clients
Sink, Christopher A.
Counseling and Values, v54 n2 p157-161 Apr 2010
From the standpoint of a journal editor and researcher, this commentary critically reflects on some of the primary notions addressed in the 4 featured articles of the special section, discussing areas of agreement and divergence. As a way of further exploring these ethical and professional concerns, the contentious issue of using school children as case studies in publications and in graduate counseling courses is briefly examined.
