S., & Callanan, P. (2007). Issues and ethics in the helping professions (7 th ed.). Pacific Grove, CA: Brooks/Cole. (ISBN-10: 0534614434) Course Description This class is a graduate level introductory course designed to provide an overview of the ethical and legal practices in the field of counseling, with a specific focus upon the professional issues of practice. An overview of the Florida statutes that govern the practice of counseling will also be provided. Finally, importance will be placed on the need for balance between one’s professional and private life as this is crucial in maintaining a healthy helping style. This knowledge will allow the individual to help others more effectively as well as have a personally fulfilling career in counseling. The goal of this course is to get students thinking about major issues related to the professional practice of counseling while challenging them to formulate positions on such issues. The course combines the use of lectures, discussion, experiential exercises, readings, journaling, guest speakers, and videos to advance students’ knowledge and skills. Instructor's statement In teaching this course, I have three primary objectives: 1. To help you develop an understanding and awareness of the specific ethical and legal competencies necessary to develop into an effective counseling professional; 2. To provide opportunities for discussing and integrating these competencies, and; 3. To provide opportunities for increased self-awareness and personal development. Student Responsibilities As a student taking this course, your responsibilities are to: 1. Attend class regularly and actively participate in all classroom activities (discussions, presentations, exercises, etc.). Your attendance and active participation in the class are critical to your own learning as well as that of your peers and the overall success of the course. 2. Complete all required assignments and submit them according to the schedule in the "Schedule of Classes and Assignments." (The format for the course will necessitate your active involvement in learning, discussing, and applying information from class readings.)
