Recently Released APA Books® E-Collections Titles

The Case Against Conversion “Therapy”: Evidence, Ethics, and Alternatives

Edited by: Douglas C. Haldeman

Associated Courses: Human Sexuality, Philosophy of Love and Sexuality

E-Collections Edition: Full, Academic

What does the record show about the efficacy and effects of sexual orientation change efforts or gender identity change efforts? What motivates individuals to seek these harmful treatments, either for themselves or for their children? This book synthesizes findings from a vast literature base to answer these and other important questions, in hopes of fully discrediting sexual orientation change efforts or gender identity change efforts once and for all.

This volume also is grounded in the principle long embraced by the scientific and healthcare communities—that same-sex attraction and gender nonconformity are not signs of psychopathology. Rather, sexual and gender minority individuals should be supported in embracing their own identities. This affirmative approach to practice with sexual and gender minorities is consistent with decades of APA policy and ethics.

By: Joanie B. Connell

The Ethical Lives of Clients: Transcending Self-Interest in Psychotherapy

By: William J. Doherty

Associated Courses: Psychological Counseling and Psychotherapy, Contemporary Ethical Theory

E-Collections Edition: Full, Clinical

Clients often seek therapists’ input for dealing with ethical dilemmas in their lives, but there is little guidance for therapists in how to do this. This book shows therapists how to serve as ethical consultants who help clients balance their personal needs with their sense of responsibility to others.

Using detailed case examples, it provides a roadmap for addressing common client dilemmas, such as keeping and ending commitments, having affairs, lying and deceiving, and causing psychological or physical harm to others.
