ETHICAL AND PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
Credit points: 15
This subject focuses on the counselling student's developing sense of professional identity and the privileges and obligations which this affords. Criteria aimed at ensuring ethical practice are examined, as are the dilemmas which can arise around confidentiality, duty of care, dual relationships, counselling minors, referrals, and work in large or multidisciplinary agencies. The counsellor's obligations to the wider community are considered, especially in legal or quasi-legal situations.
