About the eBook

Culturally Relevant Ethical Decision-Making in Counseling presents a hermeneutic orientation and framework to address contextual issues in ethical decision-making in counseling and psychotherapy. Authors Rick Houser, Felicia L. Wilczenski, and Mary Anna Ham incorporate broad perspectives of ethical theories which are grounded in various worldviews and sensitive to cultural issues.  

Key Features:
  • Introduces a wide range of ethical theories: Important to the foundation of ethical decision-making is an in-depth understanding of general culturally relevant ethical theories that represent most world philosophical views. In addition to covering mainstream theories, this book introduces a wide range of ethical theories from Western, Eastern, Middle Eastern, Pan African, Native American, and Latino ethical perspectives.
  • Offers numerous examples: Case studies are provided throughout the text to show how to apply diverse ethical theories to clinical practice. The authors also discuss how to negotiate between an enhanced ethical perspective based on diversity and professional standards codified and mandated in this country.
  • Provides a systematic ethical decision-making model: Ethical decision-making has become a critical part of the training and practice of professional counselors and they can benefit immensely from systematic training in this area. The model in this book provides practitioners with a broad based approach to ethical decision-making, and ultimately improves the ethical decision-making process for counselors.

Intended Audience: This is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on professional standards and ethics in the fields of Counseling, Psychotherapy, and Psychology.
