New books received this week

Ethical maturity in the helping professions: making difficult life and work decisions /Michael Carroll. Kew, Vic.: PsychOz Publications, 2012.

This is an ambitious book. It moves from a view of ethics and ethical decision making as meeting basic and minimal requirements to the presentation of a model of ethical maturity - how to be the best professional you can be.

The third edition of this classic text has been fully revised and updated to reflect the latest advances in research and clinical practice. It discusses recent developments in the periodontal outcome of surgical exposure of impacted teeth, and also incorporates more protocols for routine cases.
