Law, Standards, and Ethics in the Practice of Psychology, Third Edition, by an eminent professor of psychology, provides a thorough discussion and information on the most important statutory and case law, regulations, standards of practice, ethics, and guidelines that are most pertinent to the daily practice of psychology in Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, Newfoundland and Labrador. The book covers such key topics as the regulation of the practice of psychology in those provinces as well as Dual Relationships: Managing the Boundaries, Informed Consent, Confidentiality, Client Information and Records, the Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adults, Practice in Custody and Access cases, Practice with young offenders and adult correctional clients, the business aspects of practice, the practitioner as expert witness and issues of malpractice.

“[The third edition] includes a more cross-Canada perspective on the law from the major common law jurisdictions and incorporates recent legislative updates and current trends affecting the practice of psychology.
