2018 Ethics Conference

Join us to discuss ethical issues in contemporary counseling at our annual Ethics Conference.

“The Ethics of Supervision”
Cherie King, EdD, CRC, CDMS
Central Connecticut State University
9 a.m.-Noon

Although the American Counseling Association (ACA) has provided general supervision guidelines within the Code of Ethics, most supervisors in the work setting are uncertain about supervisory roles, processes, models, or techniques (Schultz et al., 2002). Lack of training has been identified as one of the reasons for inconsistencies in and barriers to effective supervision in the work setting (Herbert 2004; Scott et al., 2006; Thielsen & Leahy, 2001). Supervision in the work setting varies from a coherent, model-driven practice to unspecified approaches with limited awareness of supervision models or standards (Scott et al., 2006). There is a lack of formal preparation of master’s degree-level counselors for supervisory roles and functions. This session will focus on the ethical practice of supervision in the various work settings for counselors. The presentation will include a didactic portion, interactive group discussions, demonstrations, and activities.

“Professional Responsibility in the Digital Age”
Charles Bernacchio, EdD
University of Southern Maine
1-4 p.m.

Our professional responsibility as counselors represents accountability to our discipline, our clientele, and the public. Our ethical obligation requires our preparation and qualifications will fulfill eligibility for valid credentials. There is an expectation of professional competence commensurate with state and national standards. As licensed or certified counselors, we’re required to demonstrate cultural competence and non-discrimination in all facets of practice. There must be a scientific basis or evidence-base for all effective counseling interventions that we apply. We’re also required to adhere to sound ethical conduct as practitioners with other professionals, as well as with the public. This session will examine the ethical guidelines from the American Counseling Association (2014) and the Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification (2017) for the professional responsibility of counselors. Certain principles within each of the codes that pertain to the standards of professional responsibility will be reviewed and discussed. Examples of ethical conflicts or dilemmas which help to illustrate the complexity of this section of the ethical codes will be examined. Participants will have an opportunity to compare professional responsibility of both ethical codes and to explore the ethical parameters for professional responsibility within a practicing counselor context. The presentation will include a didactic component, group discussion about ethical challenges, and activities.

We reserve the right to limit enrollment in this workshop and/or the right to cancel the workshop in the event of insufficient enrollment.
