Designed as a practical reference to all the important day-to-day legal and ethical issues that arise in the practice of psychology, the Law, Standards and Ethics in the Practice of Psychology, Fourth Edition, has proven to be an invaluable resource for practitioners of psychology and lawyers who advise them. Written by two eminent professors of psychology and leading practitioners in the field, this indispensable text discusses the relevant statutes, case law, regulations and standards of practice in psychology across Canada. It provides a review of particular aspects of practice, such as: boundaries and dual relationships; informed consent and practices specific to young offenders and adult correctional clients; the practitioner as expert witness; business aspects of running a practice; and liability and malpractice avoidance.

This revised, updated and expanded fourth edition includes a cross-Canada perspective on the law and incorporates recent legislative updates and current trends affecting the practice of psychology. Adding to the utility of the publication is a detailed list of references at the end of each chapter, as well as a detailed analytical index.
