Ethical Considerations in Career Counseling
All career counselors are subject to ethical standards. As you learned in Week One, the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC), National Career Development Association (NCDA), and the American Counseling Association (ACA), have each established ethical guidelines for career counselors. As you might expect, you will be faced with situations throughout your career that require you to reflect on and abide by these standards. Identify a topic which could present personal ethical/moral issues for you in your work as a career counselor. There are suggested topics in Chapter 14 of the Niles & Harris-Bowlsbey (2012) text; however, you are free to select one of your own. After identifying a topic, answer the following questions:
Why would the case you selected present a dilemma? What specific ethical codes apply to the case you selected? How would you go about handling the situation? What resources might you use in coming up with the best response? Post should be at least 300 words. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ questions by Day 7.
