The philosophical method is critical to ethics consulting. To be truly effective, ethicists need grounding in ethics theory, abstract reasoning and conceptual analysis. A Practical Guide to Clinical Ethics Consulting allows ethicists to understand problems from practitioners' points-of-view, and allows for a genuine appreciation of the working life of practitioners.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Is there such a thing as ethics expertise? Are there ethics experts? Many discussions of ethics expertise suffer from an overly simple formulation of the issues. By contrast, Meyers' detailed account of the elements of ethics expertise and his discussion of how to it should be exercised provide an unusually careful defense of his affirmative answer to the question. Meyers' book is the best entree I know to exploring the question of ethics expertise in depth. -- David T. Ozar, Loyola University Chicago
The book offers a refreshing view of the role of ethics advice and articulates a model to broaden the function and relevance of this advice from analyst to advocate. An enjoyable read. * Metapsychology Online *
This book constitutes an excellent contribution....[It] presents not only a well documented defense of Meyer's thesis, but also a comprehensive description of the necessary tools for effective ethics consulting. * Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy, January 2009 *
Unlike many other books in clinical ethics, this guide manages to hold high ideals for ethics practitioners, while keeping their work grounded in the culture and institutions in which ethical issues arise. The author provides practical advice for how one can provide needed ethical expertise without either being co-opted into the clinical perspective or dismissed. -- Deni Elliott, author of Ethics in the First Person: A Guide to Teaching and Learning Practical Ethics
