About the Course:
The authors Drs Pope and Vasquez draw on their professional experience, empirical studies, and case examples to examine the ethical responsibilities that confront psychotherapists and counselors in their day-to-day practice. They offer insights into contending with the sometimes competing demands of clients’ needs, formal ethical principles, personal values, and evloving legal standards in a range of areas—including fees, informed consent, sexual concerns, confidentiality, documentation, and supervision. Please Note: There are other editions, but this exam is based upon the 1998 2nd edition.
This course is based on the book, Ethics in Psychotherapy and Counseling: A Practical Guide created by Pope, Kenneth S., Ph.D. & Vasquez, Melba J.T., Ph.D.
Publication Date:1998 Second Edition
