Counselling Ethics And Practice KHA505

Hobart

Introduction

In this unit participants develop and clarify their awareness and thinking around ethical and practice dilemmas within professional counselling practice. Emphasis will be placed on the development of personal standards of practice and on the acquisition and application of decision-making processes.

Contemporary counselling practice obligations and issues such as the demands of maintaining competence and quality assurance, working as a counsellor within diverse settings and with diverse populations and the provision of consultancy will be addressed. Ethical thinking, codes of practice for counsellors and rehabilitation counsellors, and approaches to applying these codes to actual practice dilemmas, will be explored with particular attention paid to current and developing areas of ethical challenge.
