APA Handbook of Counseling Psychology
In addition to highlighting the practices in counseling psychology's traditional areas, this handbook also provides insight into new and emerging areas. The field of counseling psychology is characterized by long roots in vocational psychology, prevention, primary interventions, advocacy, and an emphasis on individual differences. The field's fundamental philosophical approach has historically emphasized human strengths, well-being, and prevention. Over the years, this approach has led to emerging emphases on cultural context, dimensions of diversity, the role of work in people's lives, and expanded roles for counseling psychologists in new settings, contexts, and with new populations. This handbook will further examine all of these concepts.
APA Handbook of Ethics in Psychology
The editors of this 2-volume reference propose that ethics is best viewed as a striving toward the highest ethical ideals, not just as an injunction against rule violation—a perspective they refer to as "positive ethics" or "active ethics."

Several chapters zero in on the teaching of ethics and on ethically minded research relevant to professionals working in experimental psychology. By comparison with many ethics textbooks, this two-volume handbook covers a wider range of subjects and pursues them in greater detail.
