SAGE, 19.10.1998 - 256 Seiten
An extremely valuable addition to literature that one cannot help but be informed and educated by. I highly recomend it.' - "British journal of Clinical Psychology

"

With a focus on clinical psychology, this book explores the challenges and confusions generated by postmodernism. Identifying contemporary concerns in clinical practice and seeking responses to current questions, the book asks: Are professionals really self-serving individuals pretending to be altruistic? Are ethics the guarantor of good practice in a post-scientific age? How can we recognize and train the ethical practitioner? What models of practice will be useful in the future?

Critical Issues in Clinical Practice sets an agenda for all researchers in clinical practice seeking key topics and themes, an agenda that promises clarity to practitioners bludgeoned by the rapid turnover of ideas that is postmodern culture. It challenges both researchers, practitioners and students to reach beyond the celebration of diversity, to consider how to construct new alliances and purpose.

Seite 18 - The hardest aspect of being an intellectual is to represent what you profess through your work and interventions, without hardening into an institution or a kind of automaton acting at the behest of a system or method.
