Product description


“Truscott writes in an accessible style, communicating ideas clearly and succinctly and giving examples that illuminate the concepts being presented.” -- Karin A.M. Coles, PhD, R.Psych, Associate Director and Teaching Faculty, CityUniversity

“Derek Truscott is an expert in the field of ethics and effectively integrates hard-won clinical experience with scholarly objectivity.” -- Jacqueline Linder, PhD, R.Psych, CCT

“Ethics for the Practice of Psychology in Canada is one of a kind in the Canadian market and fills a critical gap. The author brings extensive knowledge and experience in writing about and handling ethical issues. Brilliantly written and organized, the text offers clear and compact, yet comprehensive coverage of the ethical systems of thought that underpin the CPA’s ethical code and our collective approach to core ethical issues in the profession of psychology.” -- Edward Johnson, Professor of Psychology, University of Manitoba

"Students have always liked the book, which is a good supplement to the legislation, codes, and standards that they also read." -- Angela Troyer, Assistant Professor, Psychology, University of Toronto

“This important new edition reflects the fourth edition of the Canadian Code of Ethics for Psychologists and highlights current ethical discussions in the areas of diversity and social justice. It continues to do an excellent job of providing information in a manner that is easily accessible for graduate students who are new to the field of psychology and considering professional ethics and laws, while also being a useful guide for practicing psychologists.” Lara K. Robinson, Assistant Teaching Professor and Clinic Director, Psychology, University of Victoria

Since obtaining registration as a psychologist in 1987 and earning my doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Windsor in 1989, I have practiced in psychiatric hospitals, community clinics, group homes, rehabilitation centers, and in private practice. I have also been a professor of counselling psychology at the University of Alberta since 1997. When I began my training in psychotherapy, I thought that good therapy involved dispensing wisdom. Given that I was rather young, I assumed that I had time to fill waiting to become older and thus wiser. So I decided to learn everything I could about ethics in order to stay out of trouble and in the profession while I gained the experience I needed. An ardent believer in "writing to learn," I authored two books on ethics with my dear friend Ken Crook: Ethics for the Practice of Psychology in Canada (2004), and Ethics and Law for Teachers (2007). I also continued to study, teach, practice, and write about psychotherapy, culminating in Becoming an Effective Psychotherapist: Adopting a Theory That's Right For You and Your Client (2009). To my great relief--having discovered first hand that wisdom does not inevitably accrue with age--I learned that effective therapy is not about giving advice. I also learned that being ethical is not about receiving advice. I have come to appreciate that they share a common wisdom and congruent aims. Now I see my interests in ethics and psychotherapy as synergistic; that an effective therapist is also an ethical one and vice-versa. I can't imagine a better career than psychotherapy; it is always interesting, often satisfying, and ultimately deeply rewarding. I take pride in aspiring to be a good therapist and in striving to inspire others to do likewise.
