Ethical Decision Making 2 Introduction Literature Review Castro-Atwater and Hohnbaum (2015) discusses the roles and responsibilities of the educators and supervisors in how they prepare their graduate students to enter into the field of human services professionals. How the clinicians engaged with the graduate students while in the field will set the tone for how the student will be able to effectively identify unethical behaviors and will be equipped to handle unethical dilemmas appropriately.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
