Welcome to the Companion Site!

This site is intended to enhance your use of Ethical Practice in the Human Services, First Edition, by Richard Parsons and Karen Dickinson. Please note that all the materials on this site are especially geared toward maximizing your understanding of the material. 

Ethical Practice in the Human Services moves beyond addressing ethical issues and principles to helping readers actually practice ethical behavior through awareness of their personal morals, values, and choices. With coverage of ethical standards from six different associations, the text addresses ethical issues and principles in social work, counseling, psychology, and marriage and family therapy. Robust pedagogy includes case illustrations and guided exercises to give readers a deeper understanding of the underlying moral principles and values that serve as a foundation for the various ethical codes.


We gratefully acknowledge Richard Parsons and Karen Dickinson for writing an excellent text and creating the materials on this site.
