    One thought on “Children, Ethics, and the Law: Professional Issues and Cases”

    1. I didn't quite realize how narrowly-tailored to psychologists this book would be when I first started it I thought that the issues it discussed would be me more generalizable, and they were somewhat, but they were really more specific to psychologists.
