Wheeler, Anne Marie; Bertram, Burt
American Counseling Association
This eighth edition provides a current and comprehensive discussion of counselors' legal and ethical responsibilities, an examination of state and federal laws as they relate to practice, and helpful risk management strategies. Attorney Nancy Wheeler and Burt Bertram, a private practitioner and counselor educator, offer real-world practical tips to help navigate professional risks while providing competent clinical care. New or updated topics include matters surrounding informed consent, current case law on duty to warn/protect and issues surrounding suicide in college/university settings, electronic records and ransomware concerns, and updates on state licensure board data regarding boundary violations. The authors' legal and ethical decision-making model will assist counselors and students with processing their own legal and ethical dilemmas, and the "ACA Code of Ethics" is included as a handy reference.
