This book demonstrates how critical thinking skills can impact and improve the process of ethical decision-making.

Ethical decision-making is required in many of the difficult situations faced by addiction professionals. In this guide, Michael Taleff describes how to integrate critical thinking with ethical decision-making. This is a guide not on "what to do" when confronted with difficult ethical dilemmas, but on how to think about what to do.
The author presents common ethical dilemmas that addiction professionals face in their daily work--such as boundary issues, confidentiality, dual relationships, and more--and asks readers to consider their own responses to these dilemmas. The book then shows readers how to apply new models of ethical thinking to practice.
