Referral and Termination Issues for Counselors guides trainee and practicing counselors through the practical issues surrounding the referral of clients, a procedure that may be necessary at any time during the counseling process. Stressing ethical issues and the need to be aware of competency limits, Anne Leigh provides clear and straightforward guidelines. The sensitive, ethical handling of termination is also an important part of this book, backed up by clear examples and the recognition of the emotional consequences of referral or termination for both counselor and client. She examines the situations most frequently calling for referral and the ways in which referral may take place responsibly and satisfactorily. This volume covers whether, how, to whom, and when to refer on, as well as how best to receive referrals from outside agencies.
