Ethical dilemmas of psychotherapists

Geoff Lindsay and Petruska Clarkson explore the difficulties of psychotherapeutic work.
THE ethical basis of psychological practice has received increased attention in recent years. For example, recent Presidential addresses to The British Psychological Society (Lindsay, 1995), the Irish Psychological Society (McGee, 1995) and the Canadian Psychological Association (Pettifor, 1996) have addressed ethics and values. Also, the European Federation of Professional Psychologists Associations approved a meta-code of ethics at its General Assembly in 1995 (EFPPA, 1997), whose requirements all aspiring member associations must meet.
