520    "Psychologists who practice in small and contained 
       communities share special circumstances that both 
       complicate and enhance their professional lives. Such 
       settings include rural, military, law enforcement, or 
       faith-based environments; communities of color; gay, 
       lesbian, bisexual, or transgender clients; and students at
       small colleges. While these communities vary considerably,
       the psychologists who serve them encounter similar ethical
       challenges in their daily work. In these close-knit groups,
       psychologists' professional and personal lives often 
       overlap with those of their clients. Clients' and 
       coworkers' expectations may run counter to psychologists' 
       ethical standards, and issues associated with dual 
       relationships, treatment boundaries, limits of competence,
       and multiple roles arise regularly. This book explores how
       the life of a small-community psychologist differs from 
       that of a colleague in a large urban center who is not 
       part of a small community, highlighting common problems 
       and concerns. Using the provisions of the 2002 Ethics Code
       of the American Psychological Association as a reference 
       point, the authors analyze dilemmas and advantages in 
       small-community practice and suggest ways in which 
       psychologists can evaluate their actions and make wise 
       decisions. In this way, they can protect and serve both 
       themselves and their clients. This thought-provoking book 
       provides reassuring guidance for any mental health 
       professional who serves a small community"--Cover.
