Inthese cases, I will follow the laws and rules set for by the state legislative and school system.Also, I will follow up on the above cases to see have the situations been reported. Additionally,in certain dilemmas I will apply the ethical decision-making process to the problem. Thisprocessed was initiated by the ASCA Ethical Standards. The Solution to Ethical Problemsinclude nine steps which are: define the problem emotionally and intellectually, apply the ASCAEthical Standards and the law, consider the students’ chronological and developmental levels,consider the setting, parental rights, and minor rights, apply the moral principles, determine yourpotential courses of action and their consequences, evaluate the selected action, consult, andfinally implement the course of action (Erford, 2019). Also, I will consult with my national andstate associations to see how other professionals would handle these problems. Additionally, Iwill document each step of the evidence-based decision-making process to make sure I ethicallyapplied all steps.3)Student identifies potential issues he or she may experience when faced with issues noted above.As a school counselor some potential issues I may experience is legal and ethical issuesinvolving confidentiality, rights of parents and informed consent, conflict of interestbetween school and student, and counselor competence. When it comes to confidentialitycounselors may run into problems with parents and administrators about students’confidentiality rights. Therefore, counselors should advocate for the use of agreementswith parents and administrators to prevent misunderstandings. Even though, parents haverights to know about their child, counselors do not have to reveal the details of theircounseling conversations with their students. However, in situations of abuse, neglect,suicide, and bullying I must inform the student that I will have to share this informationwith others on their behalf.Additionally, parents have the right to consent or not consentto informed consent. Parents also have the right to stop ongoing counseling sessions. As acounselor I must follow the school districts polices about informed consent. As acounselor I must explain the limits to confidentiality to students. I should do this early inthe counseling relationship. Thirdly, when dealing with conflict of interest, I must abideby the ASCA Ethical standards that state that the counselor must inform officials ofconditions that maybe disruptive or damaging which pertain to the student (Erford, 2019).
