This fourth book in the authoritative BACP Legal Resources for Counsellors a Psychotherapists series provides practical examples and applications of the law as it applies to therapists in the many different contexts of their work. Helping practitioners move between different practice settings, the book explores how the legal framework within which they work varies across contexts. It introduces practitioners to the statutory structure and obligations of different types of counseling and psychotherapy services, setting out implications for practice such as liability and accountability. Work settings covered range from private practice and commercial organizations to social services. For each setting, the book considers the statutory basis, how the legal framework impacts on services to clients, systemic issues such as bullying or prejudicial discrimination, responsibility for decision making, and the restrictions and empowerment of therapists and clients within the context of that setting. This book is an essential reference for counseling practitioners working across a range of practice settings, including those with portfolio careers. It is also important reading for all those studying counseling, psychotherapy or clinical psychology.A Guide for Practice Barbara Mitchels, Tim Bond ...
