Roles and Relationships with Clients in Rehabilitation Counseling: Beyond the Concept of Dual Relationships
Cottone, R. Rocco
Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, v53 n4 p226-231 Jul 2010
This article describes the recent revision of the "Code of Professional Ethics for Rehabilitation Counselors," specifically addressing the Roles and Relationships With Clients ethical standard. A brief historical overview is provided of the terminology and the debate surrounding the outdated dual-relationship ethical rule in rehabilitation counseling. The term "exploitation" is also delimited. The revised ethical standards are addressed, with attention given to the standard allowing for "potentially beneficial" interactions. Implications for rehabilitation counseling practice are outlined.
