Ethical Standards Casebook. Fourth Edition.
Herlihy, Barbara; Golden, Larry B.
This fourth edition of the Ethical Standards Casebook was developed for use in a class in ethics in counseling or in other settings where ethical issues are considered. Section 1 presents the revised American Association for Counseling and Development (AACD) "Ethical Standards" adopted by the Governing Council in March 1988. Section 2 presents each individual ethical standard followed by several incidents intended to illustrate and clarify the meaning of the standard. The incidents vary in their seriousness, ranging from gross unethical conduct to behavior reflecting poor practice or questionable judgment. Section 3 provides a series of case studies that are more detailed and complex than the incidents in the previous section and are more typical of the situations an AACD member may encounter. The case studies reflect the types of complaints that the Ethics Committee receives as well as the current and emerging concerns of the membership. Section 4 presents a series of essays intended to provide further information and provoke thought about ethical issues of particular concern to counselors. The appendices contain information to which the AACD member may need to refer from time to time, including: divisional codes of ethics; the ethical standards of the National Board for Certified Counselors; the AACD Policies and Procedures for Processing Complaints of Ethical Violations; and a description of the purpose and procedure of the AACD Legal Action Program.
