Item description for Christian Counseling Ethics: A Handbook for Therapists, Pastors, & Counselors by Randolph K. Sanders...

Can a Christian social worker share her faith with clients? Are pastors spiritually obligated to prevent divorce? These are just two of the complex issues addressed in Christian Counseling Ethics: A Handbook for Therapists, Pastors & Counselors. State and federal codes, professional guidelines, and much more are interpreted in the light of Christianity.

Publishers Description
A client raises spiritual questions. Can a Christian therapist working in a government agency talk with a client about faith? A young couple with two children asks a Christian counselor to help them negotiate an end to their marriage. What responsibility does the counselor have to try to repair the relationship? A youth group member confidentially reveals to the pastor that he is taking drugs. Should the pastor tell the boy's parents? A counselor who teaches a college course has a client show up for class. What should she do? These are just a few of the complex dilemmas that therapists, counselors and pastors face nearly every day. Handling these situations appropriately is critical for both the client's progress and the professional's personal credibility and protection from liability. State and federal codes, professional association statements and denominational guidelines have been drawn up to address ethical issues like competence, confidentiality, multiple relationships, public statements, third parties and documentation. In this book you'll find them all compiled and interpreted in light of Christian faith and practice. Written by qualified professional counselors and respected academic instructors, this book is an indispensable resource for understanding and applying ethics in Christian counseling today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Counseling Ethics: A Handbook for Therapists, Pastors, & Counselors?

Excellent Introduction  Jul 5, 2006
As the title implies, "Christian Counseling Ethics" offers an exellent overview of legal, moral, ethical, and Christian behavior in the counseling relationship. Edited by R. K. Sanders and written by a team of leading practitioners and professors, this handbook serves well counselors, pastors, and lay helpers. An updated edition would be welcomed, as this first edition is now edging past a decade old. In that edition, issues could be further explored regarding "dual relationships" especially with the growth in the past decade of spiritual direction, spiritual friendship, and pastoral care all overlapping increasingly with "modern counseling."

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," and the forthcoming "Sacred Friendships: Listening to the Voices of Women Soul Care-Givers and Spiritual Directors."

Excellent overview of major ethics issues in counseling  Feb 27, 1999
Dr. Sanders and contributing authors give a realistic picture of the ethical issues that face Christian and secular counselors. The issues are well illustrated by examples and evaluation of the right or wrong responses. Not just a book for professionals, strong chapters are devoted to pastoral and lay counseling. Appendices feature Codes of Ethics from major associations in counseling and psychology. This is a fine addition to any professional's library, a must-read for counseling students, and a great gift for a pastor or church counseling ministry director. I'm using this as a primary text for my graduate students in Ethics and Law for Christian Counselors. Thank you, Dr. Sanders, well done! Dr. Kathie Erwin
