    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She is a great instructor the class is about Codes and Ethics. I find that the most hardest parts of the course would be gathering the information from ethics sections. Overall its the most easiest course out there.

    Course highlights:

    In Module 4, ethics related to training therapists will be explored. Early career requirements, such as supervision, as well as later requirements, such as consultation and continuing education, will be discussed. Additionally, you will learn about developing a counseling style and why this is important, particularly within the context of assessment, diagnosis, and the development of a treatment plan. In Module 5, you will learn about ethical concerns specific to working with couples, families, and groups. You will also learn about ethical issues involved in working in the community. LASA Overview As you work through this course, you will find two assignments called LASAs. These assignments are high-stakes assessments, worth 50% of your grade, that directly measure the course objectives. Each course has two LASAs (one in Module 3 and another in Module 5), and when the assignments are completed, all course objectives will be assessed. In the first LASA, you will be given a case vignette that addresses specific issues covered in the lecture, such as counselor competence, informed consent, and issues of confidentiality. You will be expected to apply an ethical decision-making model (covered in Module 2) to arrive at a recommendation. Pay special attention to the case studies throughout the course as these will help you learn how to best approach ethical dilemmas. Remember, it is only an ethical dilemma if there is no black-and-white answer! The second LASA, at the end of the course, is a paper that reflects your ethical profile. There are four sections to this paper, which review who you are as an ethical professional, how this course has shaped your unique ethical decision-making style, and areas in which you feel still need further development. As you go through the course, critically evaluate what has shaped your value system, including your background and the role models in your life. Think about what constitutes ethical behavior in your own life and how this has impacted your sense of "right" and "wrong." You will also reflect upon your own ethical decision-making style and identify areas in which further development is required. Remember, ethical behavior is a lifelong journey as we are faced with new challenges and difficult situations.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Research everything and back up with sources no matter what you do. This is extremely important!She wants to know where you are getting your points from.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    In any phase of the study of psychology, Ethics will be an issue to consider when applying treatment or consultation for any situation. It is not always the same rules that apply to any situation. Differences must be respected at all time to prevent any legal ramifications.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the perspective of age, race, gender, religion, social economic background all require a specific code of ethics to be applied when administering counsel, evaluations, or treatment.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    It is very important to become familiar with all codes that apply because there is not one instance that these codes will not come into focus. One must be very attentive to each individual assessment to determine whether you have the training and authority to continue with any interview.
