This edited volume comprehensively examines the critical ethical challenges that arise in the practice of counselling and psychotherapy. It translates philosophical positions and professional ethical guidelines in a way that can be applied to practice. The various chapters focus on specific ethical issues that emerge in working with a range of different client groups; for example, children, couples and families. While some ethical imperatives are common across the board, others could be more closely associated with certain client groups. Practitioners might experience uncertainty in working with vulnerable client groups; for example, lesbian/gay/transgender/intersex (LGBT) clients, or persons who report intimate partner violence. Several chapters raise questions, provide information and additional resources to enhance ethically informed practice. Chapter contributions also highlight the ethical dilemmas that might be unique to certain contexts; for example, private practice, schools and consultation-liaison settings. This volume also addresses contemporary and relatively less understood playing fields like ‘digital ethics’ related to therapist-client interface in the internet space and the navigation of ethical dilemmas in the newly emerging field of employee assistance programmes which address mental health needs in the corporate sector. Written by experienced practitioners of psychotherapy, and culturally contextualized, this is a valuable resource for academics and practitioners interested in psychotherapy and counselling.

And, it includes a number of critical topics that counselors and therapists face or will face in daily practice.

Ernest Lash, ein junger Psychoanalytiker aus San Francisco, glaubt an die Wirksamkeit seines Tuns, ist aber andererseits davon überzeugt, daß die klassischen Therapien dringend einer Erneuerung bedürfen. Eines Tages beauftragt ihn die Ethikkommission seines Fachbereichs mit der Untersuchung eines prekären Falls: Er soll die Arbeitsweise eines älteren, sehr berühmten Kollegen namens Seymour Trotter überprüfen, der angeklagt ist, ein Verhältnis mit einer vierzig Jahre jüngeren Patientin gehabt zu haben. Trotter beharrt darauf, daß Sex das einzige Mittel gewesen sei, um die junge Frau vor ihrem selbstzerstörerischen Verhalten zu retten. Zunächst ist Ernest entrüstet. Doch je mehr er sich mit der Sache beschäftigt, desto mehr fasziniert ihn die Idee, jedem Patienten bzw. jeder Patientin eine fallspezifische Behandlung zuteil werden zu lassen.
