Introduction to Counseling

Author: Michael Scott Nystul
Publisher: SAGE Publications
ISBN: 9781483316628
Release Date: 2015-07-09
Genre: Social Science

Introduction to Counseling by Michael Scott Nystul provides an overview of counseling and the helping professions from the perspective of art and science—the science of counseling that generates a knowledge base proven to promote competency and efficacy in the practitioner, and the art of using this knowledge base to build skills that can be applied sensitively to clients in a multicultural society. The Fifth Edition has been organized into three sections: (1) an overview of counseling and the counseling process, (2) multicultural counseling and counseling theories, and (3) special approaches and settings. It continues to address key topics and issues, including gender, culture, and sexual orientation, and offers ways to integrate multiculturalism into all aspects of counseling, rather than view it as a separate entity. Highlighting emerging trends and changes in ethical codes, as well as reflecting the latest updates to the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-5), the book successfully illustrates the importance of art and science to modern-day counseling.

ETHICAL ISSUES IN ART THERAPY

Author: Bruce L. Moon
Publisher: Charles C Thomas Publisher
ISBN: 9780398090708
Release Date: 2015-05-01
Genre: Art

This new edition has been revised to incorporate the significant changes that were made to the AATA Ethics Document in 2013. Several chapters refer to the Ethical Principles for Art Therapists and Code of Professional Practice of the Art Therapy Credentials Board. These ethics documents are extremely helpful resources for practitioners dealing with ethical dilemmas, but they are ultimately inadequate to address every circumstance. Each art therapist must decide how the principles in the ethics documents apply to the particular problem he or she is facing. Throughout the text there are examples of ethical dilemmas that will provide opportunities for discussion and debate in the classroom or supervisory group and which will stimulate thought for individual reflection. There are four primary goals of this book: (1) to raise questions and provide information related to the many ethical dilemmas art therapists face; (2) to present models of how to think through and resolve the difficult ethical problems art therapists encounter during their professional lives; (3) to be a useful, creative tool for course instructors and art therapy supervisors as a basis for engagement with students and supervisees exploring ethical problems; and (4) to offer suggestions for artistic activities that will serve as a creative means to confront ethical dilemmas. Compelling illustrations throughout the text are provided as examples of creative responses to the artistic tasks. For the sake of comparison, the appendices contain the ethics documents of the British Association of Art Therapists and the Australian and New Zealand Arts Therapy Association. Written for art thera­py students, art therapists, and expressive arts therapy professionals, readers will find it very useful as a textbook for art therapy courses dealing with professional ethics and art therapy supervision. It will also be useful as a supplemental text in art therapy theory and practice courses.
