Each chapter in The Counselor and the Law 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.

This edition contains a thoroughly updated chapter on distance counseling, technology, and social media; regulatory updates to the HIPAA and the HITECH Act; and recent case law developments regarding legal risks for counselor educators. 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 also addressed in detail.
