    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Counseling ethics is crucial for ensuring the protection of both counselor and client. There are so many aspects of counseling that could be ethically inappropriate and this class will help the professional learn just what is or is not acceptable. It is important to know these aspects of the field before entering into the field and the main reason I would suggest this class be taken seriously and for the student to study every chance possible.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the importance of confidentiality, client trust, and why asking the correct questions will help to avoid ethical violations. For example, it is unethical to treat a client differently because of his or her personal beliefs and without asking questions the professional would be unaware of what these aspects might be. If a client has a different sexual orientation than myself I need to ethically treat this client with the same respect as every other client that walks into my office.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Although, this class is one that all counseling students are required to take I would suggest students make a study plan and stick with it to ensure all information is understood. Learning what behaviors are and are not appropriate are included in this class and if the student misses one piece of information about how to properly and ethically treat a client it is possible that this individual will begin to experience legal issues and could cause iatrogenic harm to the client.
