From Reviews of the Book:
"[A]ligns very well with CACREP standards associated with teaching ethics . . . . [T]he writing . . . is excellent . . . . Remley and Herlihy provide students with a comprehensive guide for navigating ethical and legal dilemmas in counseling. I appreciate that Remley and Herlihy create new editions that are accurately updated to current issues in counseling and counselor education. I know when a new edition is released that it will be the most up-to-date resource available to counselors."
Elizabeth A Prosek, University of North Texas
"[T]he text provides thorough coverage of professional issues in counselling. Students are able to understand historic and legal aspects of their profession and ethical obligations so that they are empowered to be competent decision makers on behalf of themselves and their clients . . . . [T]his is an excellent book that covers professional identity and ethical and legal issues to sufficient depth for training counsellors to be competent, pass their necessary exams for licensure and certifications, and fulfill their professional obligations."
Keith Mobley, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
"Its written in a way that is relatable for both students who have no context or experience in the field and also for those who have been practicing for a while . . . . [Key strengths include a] focus on counseling as a separate profession, inclusion of current legal cases, [and a] focus on diversity considerations."
Claudia Lingertat-Putnam, The College of Saint Rose
"[The text] is engaging and clear while remaining appropriately professional in covering the essential topics of ethical and legal information and behavior . . . . I feel the case examples, and subsequent questions help students bring a practical application to [the] material."
Edward A. Wierzalis, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
