In this seventh edition of The Counselor and the Law, each chapter has been
updated to reflect changes in the 2014 ACA Code of Ethics, findings of recent
court cases, and new federal and state legislation. Attorney Nancy Wheeler
and Burt Bertram, a private practitioner and counselor educator, provide a
comprehensive overview of the law as it pertains to counseling practice; an
in-depth look at counselors legal and ethical responsibilities; and an array
of risk management strategies. Written in a clear and engaging style, this text
is not only a widely used and respected resource for students, it also
provides real answers for clinicians who are challenged daily to act in the
best interest of their clients while minimizing the chances of becoming
involved in an ethical or legal complaint. The issues surrounding civil
malpractice liability, licensure board complaints, confidentiality, duty to warn,
suicide and threats of harm to self, professional boundaries, records and
documentation, and managing a counseling practice are addressed in detail.
