Review

'Boyle and Gamble deliver an engaging text that explores an often-dull topic for psychology students. Australian psychology students (and practising psychologists) should delight that there is now a comprehensive textbook that explores, explains, and demonstrates the Australian Psychological Society's Code of Ethics in a practical context. The case studies throughout the book bring the ethical dilemmas to life, and allow the reader to ponder each case, work through the ethical considerations, and promote discussion among peers.' Sara Groves, The Australian Educational and Developmental Psychologist, Volume 31, July 2014. 'Ethical Practice in Applied Psychology is written specifically to the Australian Psychological Society (APS) Code of Ethics and is an essential text for the new and experienced psychologist. This book offers undergraduate and postgraduate psychology students a much-needed lifeline into ethical practice. More experienced practitioners will also benefit from the current and comprehensive content.' Julia Gigante, Amy Kate Isaacs, Chloe Joyce, Nadine Missenden, Anita Nepean-Hutchison, Petra Sharrock and Danica Warner, Australian Journal of Guidance and Counselling, Volume 24 Issue 02, December 2014
