Ethical Issues Associated with Information and Communication Technology in Counseling and Guidance
Sampson, James P., Jr.; Makela, Julia Panke
International Journal for Educational and Vocational Guidance, v14 n1 p135-148 Mar 2014
For more than 50 years, literature on the use of information and communication technology in counseling and guidance has presented ethical issues related to the development and use of technologies in practice. This paper reviews the ethical issues raised, organizing them into three categories: Social equity, resources, and services. Career professionals' efforts to address these ethical issues are introduced via a discussion of ethical, credentialing, and accreditation standards. The article concludes with a call for additional standards development, training resources, and research to shape the use of rapidly changing technologies in ways that ethically and effectively enhance client services.
