Forensic Ethics and Indirect Practice for the Rehabilitation Counselor
Barros-Bailey, Mary; Carlisle, Jeffrey; Blackwell, Terry L.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v53 n4 p237-242 Jul 2010
For nearly 50 years, the specialty area of forensics has emerged as an established practice setting in rehabilitation counseling, and it is predicted to be the fastest-growing area of practice in the profession. Reflecting the increased number of practitioners in the specialty, the revised "Code for Professional Ethics of Rehabilitation Counselors" names Section F (Forensics and Indirect Services) as a guide to the ethical practice for rehabilitation counselors in this specialty. The section includes 17 standards specific to clients' and evaluees' rights, rehabilitation counselors' forensic competency and conduct, forensic practices, and forensic business practices. Furthermore, the unique relationship of the forensic rehabilitation counselor with the person receiving services is clarified through the introduction of the definition of "evaluee," a term that has gained unilateral agreement throughout the field of forensic rehabilitation.
