"This refreshing book employs clear, critical thinking in addressing the complexities of boundaries and dual relationships in counseling and psychotherapy. A unique contribution, it is a liberating guide that supports counselors to traverse the territory of ethical clinical decision making from a base of integrity and care rather than fear and ignorance."
