ASCA Ethical Standards and the Relevance of Eastern Ethical Theories
Cook, Amy L.; Houser, Rick A.
Journal of School Counseling, v7 n28 2009
As schools become increasingly diverse through immigration and growth of minority groups, it is important that school counselors incorporate culturally sensitive ethical decision-making in their practice. The use of Western ethical theories in the application of professional codes of ethics provides a specific perspective in ethical decision-making, but may not provide school counselors with a broad cultural perspective. We discuss the use of Eastern theories of ethics (Taoism and Hinduism) and their relevance to the ASCA Ethical Standards for School Counselors to inform school counselors' work with Asian immigrant students.
