Legal Issues in Counselling and Psychotherapy is a much needed source of advice and reference, which examines the rapidly growing range of situations in which therapists find themselves in contact with the law - in their everyday practice, in specialist work or when facing a legal case against them. The first part covers the current legal context of therapeutic work including confidentiality, contracts, data protection and court reports. Chapters include defining work by leading writers from the therapeutic and legal worlds, as well as an illuminating account by a client who brought a successful case against her therapist.
