The essence of this book directs the reader to creatively assess their ethical practice from a client and dynamic perspective. It highlights that there is a real need to understand how ‘in the moment’ practitioners have to risk manage the ever changing situation in a session, and how it an ability that needs to be understood so as not to stifle creativity. Definitely a must read.
