Ponton, Richard F.; Duba, Jill D.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v87 n1 p117-121 Win 2009
The "ACA Code of Ethics" (American Counseling Association, 2005) is an articulation of the ever-changing relationship between counseling professionals and society. It provides clear parameters of behaviors to meet the changing needs of the people counselors are called to serve. This article reviews the 2005 "Code" as both a statement of counselor identity and an ethical covenant with society.
