Critical Issues in Clinical Practice

Synopsis

Critical Issues in Clinical Practice by Jennifer Anne Clegg

`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.

Reviews

`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

`This is an important book: it advances the contemporary ethics of learning disability with scolasticism, and shows frontline knowledge of the ethical dilemmas of clinicians in this field. Jennifer Clegg combines an authoratative knowledge of modern philosophical though with an ability to apply such knowledge to issues in learning disability.....I recommend this book to all thoughtful practitioners, particularly academics who, this book avers, can produce very plausable excuses for failure to act on behalf of people with learning disabilities' -Journal of Intellectual Disability Research
