Question description

From developing treatment planning choices, office practices such as confidentiality and record keeping, and other professional behaviors, ethics provides the framework for defining how we should do what we do. However, the counseling field is not immune from a myriad of ethical challenges that require professional counselors to understand how ethics guides their profession. When providing counseling services to clients, counselors must also consider the implications of law and cultural competence in the profession. Ethics provides the foundation for working with all clients, however, counselors must apply the foundational definitions of ethics within the constraints of law and cultural competence. Understanding and integrating ethics, law, and cultural competence in day-to-day activities is a skill that all professional counselors should adopt.
