Multicultural and Diversity Considerations in the New "Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors"
Cartwright, Brenda Y.; Fleming, Christine L.
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v53 n4 p213-217 Jul 2010
As the demographic transformation of the U.S. population continues, the challenges of multicultural and diversity-based considerations remain a central focus, as does the need to incorporate cultural competencies into the practice of rehabilitation. The Commission on Rehabilitation Counselor Certification's 2010 "Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors" offers guidance for the practice of professional conduct and ethical decision making when one is working with individuals from culturally diverse groups and backgrounds. The revised code sets the expectation that the culturally competent rehabilitation counselor will develop interventions and services that are congruent with the client's values and cultural context.
